0006555: Crash on calendar screen while attempting to create new adventurer after previous adventurer gives in/dies
My adventurer ran into bogeymen so I just said forget this and hit escape, went to the "give in to starvation" option.

I then tried to create a new adventurer. It got to the calendar screen, advanced some time, then crashed. Tried this multiple times and it crashed at the calendar screen every time. Had to generate a new world to create another adventurer.
I tried to reproduce it but was not able to exactly replicate the scenario. I just ran out and gave in to starvation. It successfully created another adventurer after that. Possibly unrelated to my actions.
From the gamelog:

You cannot travel through the Dark pits.
You are surrounded by incessant cackling.

The error log file is massive and filled with repeating data sans timestamps so I wasn't able to find anything relevant.
No tags attached.

*UPDATE* I have since had a success/crash rate of about 4success/1crash in creating adventurers after giving in to starvation.

Possibly just a world gen bug relating to advancing time having nothing to do with my giving in circumstances.

This is the only text I could find in the errorlog during my attempts to reproduce and there are thousands of lines of it: "guard army unattached from parent army"

I had this happen when an adventurer was killed by a night creature, so it's probably not related to the cause of death. Interestingly, the date isn't consistent - it can crash anywhere in the world-updating process, and before as well (specifically in the "loading parameters" stage).

The saves I've tested so for (three of them) all had the same out of bounds army error I just fixed, so I'm tentatively marking this off as fixed. I also attempted to have it clean up the saves, which is sort of dubious since it has to guess where to put the army and will sometimes just strand it. Of course, there is a lot going on in the calendar, so I doubt we are out of the woods. But it should be better next time anyway.
