0008930: Army of crundle recruits, fleshball recruits, and a mudman recruit show up out of nowhere
An army of non-sentient recruits just showed up out of absolutely nowhere and just started running around the travel map. I was waiting for an army that was supposed to attack the neighboring Forest Retreat for the Fun, and one night all of these recruits appear out of nowhere. The save I attached is from when I found about 20 of them in one place.

It reproduced in another save in a bandit controlled hillocks.

Edit: What I think might be happening is all underworld creatures are teleporting to the overworld. And they become recruits the second they have an encounter. This group all became recruits at the same time they became hostile. Before that they werent.

I've observed something similar when playing as an adventurer after abandoning a fortress. The cave dragon that had been chilling on a mushroom in the third level of my fortress suddenly appeared above ground and was labeled a Recruit.
