0008998: Promotion of Expedition Leader to King removes all other Noble positions
Fresh world gen, Dwarves are extinct.
(IF) Expedition leader is selected to be King, and now the Noble screen shows no positions beyond King.
Embark with Dwarves extinct.
Check the nobles page, note who the leader is.
Hope the RNG picks your Expedition Leader to be King.
Check the nobles page again, everything is now blank.
Reproducing is annoying, as I don't know how the King is selected (beyond RNG).
However, I did successfully reproduce the problem.
No tags attached.
