|0007721: Cannot lay non-fortress member ghost to rest. Ghost causes all dwarves to abandon all tasks resulting in death of fortress.
|My fortress was attacked by a random band of dwarves. The log said something like "the forces of evil are upon you". The raiding dwarves left the map after I killed one of them. The dead dwarf later rose as a ghost. I was unable to disperse this ghost via either burial or slab. The corpse was in my stockpile but no dwarf would place it in an available activated coffin. The name of the ghost dwarf also did not show up in the carve slab menu.
My dwarves reaction to the ghost destroyed my fortress. Nearly every task was cancelled immediately with the message "task was interrupted by ghost". They would not even eat, drink, or sleep. Given that I had no way to remove the ghost and he could travel through walls my fort was doomed.
|Steps To Reproduce
|Wait for a dwarf to appear on the map who is not a member of the fortress and kill him. Wait for him to reanimate as a ghost. The ghost will not be removable by any means and will halt all tasks in your fortress resulting in insanity and doom.
