Summary0004967: Dwarves randomly die of sudden bleeding to death from their feet...
DescriptionI have reloaded several times, and it occurs every time, entirely predictably, to the same dwarves. I put unreproducible, however, because I don't know why it is happening.
Here's what seems to happen: It has started to rain, and it does so for a while. Suddenly, the woodworker who is in the carpentry shop outside flashes yellow, and if I check before he dies his feet are suddenly injured: specifically, all five toes on each foot, and nothing else. He VERY quickly bleeds to death (less than a few ticks). Then the ranger, across the map, suddenly does the same thing, again with all five toes on each foot suddenly in brown. The same happens to a farmer but a second later, then an herbalist, another woodworker, ect. Always the timing is the same, always the dwarves are the same, every time I reload.
At first I thought it might be that they picked up items off the corpse of the recently magma-deathed outpost liaison. Then I realized that ALL the deaths were foot-based, and independent of worn items, and the liaison didn't have five or more shoes. That got me to thinking it is other things...
So I tried seeing what if it's something outside. So I reloaded and made sure that all but the ranger stayed inside when they would otherwise always die. The only reason the ranger stayed outside is because he fell asleep (and dies in his sleep every time). Sure enough, ONLY the ranger dies.
Any dwarf that stays outside and stays in one place seems to have the problem, whereas those that are outside but do not stay in one place - anyone with a quick task or a hauling job - are perfectly fine.

The closest I can come up with is: I have the max temp for this world set at 85 instead of 75. I am on a very tropical-savannah-like map, very dry (despite yearly rains). Is it possible that on this day, despite the rain, it just got so hot that it melts the feet of any dwarf outside standing in one place?
Steps To ReproduceCan only reproduce by same file, as I don't have vanilla DF... though actually, now that the game saves all associated raws, I COULD send one a file if they desire.
Additional InformationI have very little idea why this is happening, though I have the above mentioned clues...

Yeah, if the local temp is too high your dwarves can melt to death in the rain. Eg, 0002605. If you play on a not-as-hot locale does the same thing keep happening?

Do you have any titans/forgotten beasts? SOme of them have randomized venoms which can cause all kinds of nasty stuff.

Perhaps some of their blood got tracked on the dwarves feet. Try checking for contaniments.

Reminder sent to: Pickerel

Please compress and upload a save to [^] and post a link to it here - it will be easier just to have a look at it.

I kept playing, so the save is quite invalid, though what Logical2u says makes sense since it was just after it started raining, as well. I believe we can call this issue SOLVED!

Thanks for the follow-up. If you experience it again and it does not seem to be 0002605, please reopen this report and post your findings/save.
