0000672: Disabled/unconscious nobles can't meet liasons
My Expedition Leader became injured (Sx Mn Sn) in a fight with a Giant Toad - she survived the right leg injury but could not leave her bed. When trade liasons come to call they just sit by the bed and do nothing and eventually leave in digust. Solution currently is to move them to a bed in a room rigged to flood and kill them.
Have (by trial and error) made three expedition leaders unable to stand (tried others but they died from fighting or in recovery afterward) and results are identical.
Perhaps injury should enable you to call a new election for noble offices?

I can confirm this (in .31.12), hospital-resting leader is not having meetings.

Maybe this could be closed? You can replace expedition leaders now (though not mayors). It makes sense that bedridden character wouldn't have any meetings. Nobles shouldn't be replaceable in any circumstances anyway.

Liaisons could possibly handle it better, though.

it doesn't make sense if having a permanently bedridden noble in charge of negotiations bars you from interacting with liaisons!
