0008249: Wagon death
After each dwarven caravan for the past 3+ years (40.09 through 40.11 so far), at least one dwarven wagon (not always all of them) dies as it's leaving my fort. No hostiles in the area.
No tags attached.

Can you define "Dies"? Do all the dwarves suddenly die? Does the wagon stop moving?
2014-09-06 06:55   
The wagon turns into a pile of goods it had been carrying and a bar of wagon wood. The dwarves continue on as normal. Sometimes I'll get a message that a pack animal (water buffalo or whatever) has been missing for a week. I haven't observed it directly yet - still researching this.

This probably requires a save where the wagons are about to deconstruct.

Naturally, now that I'm trying to catch them in the act, they're all surviving. All the dead wagons are clustered around a kobold corpse that's been out there since year one.

Oh, if it's from a corpse, then it's covered by 0007185.
