0005319: Vampire simultaneously chieftess of one entity and law-giver of another
The human Ramac became the chieftess of the Wisps of Painting, became a vampire, then became the law-giver of The Nation of Zeniths without ceasing to be the chieftess of the Wisps of Painting.

This is with a slightly modified game, since I removed whips and flails before generating the world.

Save available if needed.

What makes this a bug? The entity position system is clearly intended to allow a single creature to hold multiple positions.

I thought that a single creature holding multiple positions in *different* entities was a bug, since one person being the leader of multiple countries seems weird. But maybe it's intended behaviour.

I'm guessing that The Wisps of Painting is a bandit group -- could you verify that in Legends and check its relation to The Nation of Zeniths?

Yeah, the Wisps of Painting is a group of outcasts. I couldn't find the relationship to the Nation of Zeniths, since the info on that entity has a gazillion pages.
2012-02-20 21:01   
Yeah, it seems reasonable for a vampire to retain its position as a bandit leader.

According to the release notes, this was in fact a bug.
