That probably means either bones or shells. Try producing some of those and see if the dwarf goes for them.

I had a moody dwarf requesting body parts, it was solved having an animal butchered. So I'm guessing this is not a bug.
2010-04-11 15:50   
Any updates, AnOctopus?

I haven't been able to find any way to satisfy his cravings. I have shells and slaughtered a bunch of animals, but nothing yet. I might not be able to check though, since I think he's stuck on needing some rough gems... I'll see if I can advance him to that point and report back.

Nope, couldn't find anything in time, so he went berserk and was struck down by the human caravan.

this could potentially be expected behavior, in 40d it was entirely possible for a dwarf in a mood to demand (and take) materials from the body of a fellow dwarf to complete a project. For this to occur the mood in your fortress had to be a bit grim, but it was a feature.

I laughed so hard the first time one of my crafters made a dwarf skin cloak. ;)
2010-04-12 14:56   
This could probably be anything listed in the 'body parts' category in stocks, which is bones, shells, and ivory/horn. I don't know which subcategory hooves go to though...
2010-04-13 09:12   
CptFastbreak, which kind of body part did actually get used in that artifact then?
Maybe it's a case of a generic string being used for a more specific request.

Also, could moody dwarves wanting "rock bars" (0000099) be related?

Had same issue with BoneCarver. He didn't go for bones, shells, skulls, hair, hooves, horns, rear legs and tails. Then I ran out of ideas
2010-04-23 02:39   
I had two dwarves asking for body parts, and butchering several donkeys and camels didn't provide what they were looking for.
2010-04-23 06:07   
I had a dwarf like that, and he was happy with cured leather.

Might be worth verifying that this still happens, given the fix for 0000095.
2011-03-09 07:35   
I've been playing .19 through a dozen moods and not one person has requested anything but bones and leather. Anything biological, I mean.

Okay, thanks for the info!
