Summary0005104: In worldgen, Age of Legends briefly reverts to Age of Myth
DescriptionAccording to the wiki, the age of myth should only give way to the age of legends and heroes as a certain percentage of megabeasts die. However, often in worldgen, it will turn to an age of legends for only a single year before turning into a "second age of myth."

Even if the trigger is not supposed to be based on the number of surviving megabeasts any longer, there is something kind of aesthetically unpleasing about an "age" that only lasts a single year, especially sandwiched between two much longer ages.
Steps To ReproduceHappens most of the time with the default settings in "Create New World!"
Additional InformationIt has been mentioned on the forums, so I am not the only one. [^] [^]

It is not a bug, some beasts can reproduce (rocs and dragons) that way raising the numbers of megabeasts again, and therefore beggining a new age of myth.

Reminder sent to: thvaz

The "Not a bug" tag isn't necessary. A note should be adequate for expressing your opinion.

Toady tweaked this for 0.34.03. Please reopen this report if it's still acting weird in that version (which is now out!)
