Summary0008037: Spontaneous coronation
DescriptionSo, I started up the game, and a werebear showed up and mauled a Clerk.

I wasn't too fussed, until I noticed that I didn't have a manager. The clerk had actually been my manager. A shame. Then I noticed that there was a king among us, and it was the bookkeeper. WTF. I check, and sure enough, the bookkeeper is now a king, and still a bookkeeper.

For the record, my fortress has about 30-some dwarves. This was our first casualty, and we haven't even picked up a mayor yet, let alone a baron. Also, the king is actually one of the original seven, he didn't come with a wave of migrants.
Steps To ReproduceI'm really not sure. Kill one of the lesser nobles and see what happens?
Additional InformationIf this is already reported, my apologies. I'm relatively new to this system.

Duplicate of 0006874
Your civ is dead, and your 30-some dwarves are the last.
Quote from Toady:
>This is intentional, but I didn't add the announcement to all of the circumstances. I've tried to catch as many as I could now, with appropriate sentences. I'll also consider an embark warning if it is practical.
