0011054: Historical Figures still have events misattributed to them.
This was previously known as 0010452

For me this has happened in a world that was generated with .44.12 so the fix for that bug did not work.

There's also been a bay12 thread where someone had a statue report such an event to them: http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=172647.0 [^]
If you go into the legends mode for any given world that has been played in for several years, you will be able to find mentions of forgotten beasts which pretend to be Dwarves, as well as occasionally deities.
I didn't know how to reopen the previous report, so here's a new one. I'm sorry if I didn't see the 'reopen' button.
No tags attached.

Sure, here you go:

I also did some inventarising of stuff, it seems to be Forgotten Beasts who are attributed false friendships, and all in Nestledbeak, a town, originally human, then Elves conquered it(and also crushed the humans). It has plenty of artifacts, so proly why there's so many false friendships being formed there.

Then there's these two demons who supossedly slayed zombies at the same place my adventurer was with his two companions, and I never saw these two devils(but did see the zombies: necromancer camp)

These are Milurpe Alaata Thateme and Tobhethre Ngokcáccast Quothest. A weevil devil and tanager fiend.

For the record, my two companions at the time were Eral Talkedbasements the dwarf and Strohe wildsly the human. I suspect these guys' id's must've been mixed up with the two demons.

I haven't checked all the gods yet(40 civs worth of gods -_-) so it might be worth checking if those guys are doing 'illegal' actions.

Edit: More information regarding Nestledbeak, I visited that place with an adventurer, and it seems that all of the histfigs that were generated at that moment(as in, they show up after that adventurer in the historical figure list) were the primary historical figures the FBs made false friendships with. There were other creatures the FBs made friendships with, but these always were doing so with a fake identity of their own.

The last exception to this is Tode Stirredflies, who was struck down in 254, making friends with Usu Ostngopex in 276.

Edit2: Oh, I forgot, in my investigations, I also found Dostngosp Ultaatu making false friendships in the same town, a Goblin posing as an Elven Beasthunter. I don't think that's supposed to be possible yet.

Thank you for the save.

Another save to demonstrate this bug in 47.01:

http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=14712 [^]

To see an example, look up the elf Thone Fuschiatime in Legends Mode. His entry has him assuming a false identity that does not match his race nearly two centuries after he dies in battle and his body is horribly mutilated by the victors.
