Summary0010237: War/marching army rescue is wonky
DescriptionStarting an adventure character in a site with an approaching army (or at least rumors of one) gives you a special starting message prompting you to gather those you can and flee.

There are some problems though:
-The military threat doesn't have to be immediate for villagers to agree to follow you (I'm fairly certain that where I experienced it, the army had already come and been defeated, but the rumor still existed)
-It is possible to have a permanent party member with this
-There is no option to "tell the citizen they are safe" or anything, instead, the citizens are treated like kidnapped children. This means you're compelled to take fully grown adults across the planet to their families as opposed to the safety of the next site over.
Steps To ReproduceSpecifically concerning the permanent party member:
1. Go to a town that is being "marched on" with "armies on the march"
2. Find someone who says "I have no family to speak of" when you "ask about their family".
3. Bring up the invading army.
4. Ask them to join you and be rescued.
They will thank you and agree unconditionally.
5. Talk to them, and "bring up the current journey".
6. They will mention they have no family to speak of.
7. You cannot find someone to adopt them (like you could a child with no family) and you cannot cancel the current agreement. They are stuck as your companion forever.
Additional InformationI'm sorry I didn't report this earlier, because I don't have as great of a save as I might have otherwise.

That said, the site that [^] is long after I went around and gathered up everyone in the town before realizing I couldn't just take them to the next town over. There are still some unremovable party members, and they still talk about the impending doom.

Can confirm. Even worse was that the ones I rescued had no family, meaning that I had no way to get rid of them.

Still happening in 47.02 (world generated in 47.01). In the save file below, the adventurer is seemingly capable of rescuing the entire population of the fortress-- or would be, if some of them weren't too busy murdering each other over artifacts. Try talking to the human miner Mizbo Peradthora for a demonstration of his undismissability. Several other companions exhibit the same bug.

May be related to 0007226, "Prisoners [...] won't leave party": there are small groups of goblin prisoners, standing around at the centre of most dwarven hillocks, who will readily join the adventurer to be rescued, but are also impossible to dismiss. [^]
