|Legends Mode -- Historical Figures
|Fixed in Version
|0011353: Historical figures killed by non historical figures
|Very often, a major historical figure will be killed by an unnamed figure who has no entry in the legends themself. A dragon or demon's history will usually end with the line "was struck down by a dwarf in [location]" like whoever killed them failed to go down in history.
|Steps To Reproduce
|gen a world, check the timelines of the dead megabeasts.
|No tags attached.
|In the midst of battle, it's not always clear who struck the final blow (or indeed who was involved at all). If this were a dual, then sure, needs credit, but it's not. Historical figures are limited to save memory (and the more you increase their number in worldgen options, the less events like this occur). Pretty much not a bug.
It seems to happen a bit too often though. Most of the time I can generate a world with 20 megabeasts and 5 of them will be struck down by an unnamed in a hillocks or hamlet with a small population within the first 2 decades. I needed to adjust some raws to make sure megabeasts meet eachother to replenish their numbers after they all die to farmers.
Strangely enough this doesn't seem to happen with any of the semi-megabeasts except for the minotaur which is understandable since they are small.
