Summary0007031: Werecreatures and other intelligent enemies are Horrified at the death that they cause
DescriptionAny time a werecreature invades my fortress and kills a dwarf, he will stand there for a few ticks shouting something along the lines of "Death is all around us. The horror...". After a while they get over it, and continue on their rampage. It seems like their human/dwarf/elf emotions are coming out over the werecreature.
Steps To Reproduce1.)Wait for werecreature event

2.)Allow werecreature to kill a dwarf

3.)Read combat logs to see the werecreature lamenting at the death all around
Additional InformationUpon seeing their kills, werecreatures are horrified. In addition to save I have an image link of a combat log here: [url][/url]. [^] Note that the wereiguana was talking [i]before[/i] it transformed. In the save, there should be a werecreature attack within a season. just allow the were-whatever to kill a dwarf.

Seems like an unintended feature for ware-creatures; they're horrified by the carnage the curse leads them to inflict.

This goes the other way too. I had a cyclops attack my fortress. It killed the first of my scrambled crossbowmen who reached him (horrifying him), but then he overexerted himself on the next crossbowman to arrive and got his skull smashed by a macedwarf. My militia left the scene filled with horror from watching the cyclops die, and one even remained struck with terror for a good while.

In short, I think sentient creatures are horrified by the death of one another, no matter what species they belong to or the relationship between them...
