0004970: demands fine pewter slab in office
the duke/mayor is demanding a fine pewter slab in his office/throne room. this item cannot be made at the forge. (his mandates are usually fine pewter items, slabs, shields, and enormous corkscrews).
a *very* long wait.
year 10 of fort, late spring. duke/mayor is the original expedition leader. his current mood is 'quite content'. only one criminal, from an export restriction occurring after trading.
No tags attached.

Does this - http://df.magmawiki.com/index.php/DF2010:Slab [^] explain how to fix your problem?

No, as "Fine Pewter is an alloy of tin and copper. " and "(slabs) can be made using one stone at the mason's workshop."

he wants a slab made of metal. there is currently no way to make a slab of metal. I've looked at the job manager as well. this is an impossible request, and as such is a bug.

related impossible mandates: slade - bug 0000782, blue jay tooth etc - bug 0001623

There's currently no overarching bug report for impossible mandates, although 0000782 is similar. I'm tempted to mark as related to 0000823 though.

This is pretty much a duplicate of 0000944 - demands for furniture which cannot possibly be produced (outside of a strange mood).
