Summary0001852: [SPOILERS] HFS creatures rot away, so I don't have to do anything
DescriptionOne of the new HFS types is the large pyramid guarded by skeletons and zombies. Once I revealed it, the monsters started to rot away and "die". In the end, I didn't have to kill all of them.

The bug here is that (IMHO) they shouldn't die by themselves. It makes the event too easy.

I did kill some due to impatience, and I can't be certain all of them would die by themselves. But I'm sure some of them did - inside the pyramid, there were groups of zombie or skeleton corpses there weren't there in the beginning.
Steps To Reproduce1. Reveal the pyramid.
2. Wait
Additional InformationI don't remember if this was an issue with skeletons, zombies, or both.

It is possible there was some demon with a poisonous dust that causes necrosis.

Demons weren't released yet.

Zombies normally emit miasma all the time because they're rotting - it's possible that they're rotting away completely and being "killed" as a result.

They should at least transform into skeletons or something :)

Further testing shows it was only skeletal/zombie antmen who died. Others (amphibians, snakemen, reptilians) lived on and on. I guess zombies and skeletons still can "die naturally" using the maximum age in raws?

If it was just antmen then could it be to do with the fact that their skeletons are on the outside?

The HFS undead was changed in 0.34.01, and so this report is probably obsolete.

Please reopen this report or PM me on the forums if this problem is still present in 0.34.07+.
