0001021: Forgotten beast composed of snow -- immune to magma.
I have a forgotten beast in a pool of magma (I put him there :) right now in my fortress with the description "A huge blob composed of snow."

Shouldn't this guy be melting?
No tags attached.

Would a save upload be useful? :D I have this beastie buried in 7/7 magma and he's cool as a... snowball?

Confirmed with blizzard men as well. Indeed, blizzard men are quite immortal in magma

Confirmed for Mudmen as well. In fact, mudmen don't even GET damaged when in magma, they are just as happy in it as magmamen are.

Sounds like a snowball has a better chance in hell than anyone thought.

I have a ocean titan "A gigantic blob composed of snow ..." which is immune to dragon fire, so far i have not managed to trap it to try magma since the df hack doesnt work atm with the 0.31.4 version

It may not be a bug - The forgotten beast could had generated the [FIREIMMUNE] tag at creation. No matter the material, a fire immune creature can't die to magma.
