I can't confirm this as is, but I did have one elf "poet" with a dwarven name show up long before I had a tavern set up. This happened once, and I have already started (and abandoned due to the lack of coal) several forts.

I can confirm this. There at least 50 elves in my fort, all with dwarven names.

since the original poster didn't provide a save, I will: [^]

Can confirm this for 44.02. The elves will not stop coming. I currently have around 180 of them with my visitor cap at 100. They are all divided between a few professions specifically bards, poets, peddlers, beast hunters, monster slayers, mercenaries and scholars. There were no other professions. Also notable is that they arrive with a constant rate one by one and not in noticeable groups. They all carry wooden weapons (even the civilians) and are all there to "relax".

See 0010340:0036950, visitor cap is currently not working for some of them.

This may even be a child report of that 0010340, "Soldier visitors, ignore visitor cap and act strangely" one but I have set it just as "related" for now, for the difference in visitor type.

CAN confirm this for 44.02 with the rate of incoming elves and professions. I'm providing another save [^]

*edited*: changed file download site to dffd as per FantasticDorf request (thanks man!)

Elves don't naturally possess all of the professions listed if there are legitimate visitors in that elf migration, so those can be clearly ruled out as spies or bugged.

[WANDERER],[SCOUT],[SCHOLAR:PHILOSOPHER],[SCHOLAR:ASTRONOMER],[SCHOLAR:NATURALIST],[SCHOLAR:GEOGRAPHER] are the only ones they possess in vanilla raws. And [WANDERER] is shared between all 3 default friendly races, i will update and edit this space if removing [WANDERER] has any effect.


Please use the dwarf fortress file depot @Nakran found here, which moderators recommend. [^]
