0008111: Trying to start as an adventurer at a player fortress crashes the game
There isn't much more to be said.
Make a player fortress, retire it, and then try to start there as an adventurer without crashing the game (go back and forth between the "locally important" and "peasant" options til you see your fortress named in the description). It'll crash the game.
Can upload a save if necessary.
No tags attached.

Severity should be "crash", but I accidentally set it to "major" - could I get that fixed?
2014-08-21 15:40   
Yeah, the save would be helpful.

Save is here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/cc1zk07dtov9pep/advcrash.zip [^]

There are two dwarven civs - start with a dwarf in the one that doesn't look like it's wiped out. Then, when you're choosing which fortress to start in, choose "Gearedsquare".

still need it changed to "crash", though.

As it turns out, this is a duplicate of 0006915, which apparently hasn't been fixed yet.

I can confirm that DF also crashes for me when following Talvieno's instructions in the provided save.
I haven't reproduced this independently; I've been able to start adventurers in my own retired fortresses without crashing. However, at 0008122 I discuss a save that crashes on loading, after I saved an adventurer at a retired fort.

I couldn't even get through the calendar at first -- there was a crash there for me caused by refugee rumors. Then there was the adventurer crash, caused by having an army without a goal at the fortress. I eventually got the thing working.
