0003262: Slain nameless intelligent entities get names, don't appear in legends
I killed a nameless thresher for the hell of it, and looking at his corpse I saw he had a name. After I died I checked the legends, and he wasn't in there. On my adventurer's kill screen he was just reported as a human.

This has probably been fixed since 0.40

On 0.40.24 and my two adventurers have killed well over a thousand non-historical's between them and every one gained a name and spot in legends.
