0000381: Adventurers/reclaimers have the creature IDs of megabeasts
Adventurers a created with kill counts often in the hundreds, attributed to some megabeast usually. Adventurer will bleed (Megabeasts name)'s unknown substance. Adventurer does not appear in legends, but the assosciated megabeast "died" when the adventurer did, also any kills have death dates, but no mention of their passing in the detailed History. Also claims megabeast was "guided by forces unknown" like the usual adventurer description.
Happened with multiple adventurers in a default setting world, did not happen at all with a custom settings pocket island.
No tags attached.

It would probably be helpful if you uploaded a save during Adv. Mode gameplay with one of these reincarnated adventurers. http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

Any updates? This sounds like a bug very much worth catching, but it'll be difficult without a save.

Strangely, the same thing happened in my fortress. To all of my modded-out-of-dwarfhood embark group. At the same time as 0000017 with the missing expedition leader/labours. I haven't dug through the legends yet, but I was completely boggled at the time as to why all 7 of my group showed up with 300-500 kills dating all the way back to Year 1, and a text wall of enemy factions in their statuses.

I'll also note that this embark was a reclaim of a previous site.

Antiscient: do you happen to have a save from before you reclaimed the site?
2010-04-26 23:25   
No, I don't, sorry. All I can do is vouch that this error can also occur in fortress mode. My raws were edited and my game had some errorlog issues from mistakes I'd made there, so I don't think my affected save (from after the reclaim) would be of much use either.

I can confirm this happening on using PLAY NOW! to start a fortress on a large island world. The world was generated using the 31.03 mayday version - no other alterations. I might have the save still, but I've made a few dozen worlds with compressed saves off... so It might have been deleted.

I can also confirm this when using play now. Don't have the save though =/
