Summary0005935: Dwarfs are getting "red" combat reports sometimes while sparring
DescriptionHere is an example:

"it The Axedwarf in the upper body, but the attack is deflected by The Axedwarf's (bronze greaves)!"

That is character-for-character, including two spaces after "it".

This was happening when dwarfs were equipped with wooden shield + training axe, but now I have them in a more standard uniform, and it's happening as well.

The dwarf in question is one of mine (not a caravan dwarf).

I am pretty sure it's sparring-related, because there are no other combat reports and there are also sparring reports.

The are sparring in a room with a bunch of cages in it (animal stockpile). Prior to that it was a wood stockpile. There's also a wooden armor stand, dwarfs going back and forth with wheelbarrows, and so on.

Might this be related in some way to 0005877?

Reminder sent to: brucemo

Is there any way that the sparring dwarves could be taking a fall (e.g. dodging into a platform / down some stairs / into a well)?

This also apparently can happen in reverse too. Had a sparring axedwarf go berserk during a tantrum spiral and ordered the military to put him down. The macedwarf that was previously sparring with him delivered an immediate kill blow to the head, and that showed properly in the macedwarf's combat log, but appeared on the berserker's sparring log.

Save at [^]

(The berserker is Dishmab Udilrovod; I forgot to get the Macedwarf's name, but it should be easy to find the log anyway.)

This kind of combat report sounds suspiciously like the weird reports an armored creaturegets when he takes falling damage but is protected by his armor; is your barracks adjacent to or include any tiles where a dwarf might dodge during sparring into a hole?

I've gotten some of those, it seems to happen when a dwarf does a dodge but I guess messes up? Or maybe dodges into someone else?

To answer tryble, no, my barracks wasn't next to or includes places where a dwarf might dodge into a hole.

We'll assume this was 0003722. Please reopen or PM me on the forums if otherwise.
