Summary0007360: Combat horror and cowardice too common
DescriptionCombatants are much too prone to recoiling in horror. Take for example this goblin siege group: [^]

That was the only actual combat thus far. Aside from that, a goblin recruit swung at but missed one of my dogs.

Three goblins fled after that, with absolutely no damage to them or any of their friends.

1.) All creatures in a military force should have suppressed horror reflexes -- they'll still be able to be emotionally disturbed, but it would take a lot more than it would to scare a civilian (Seeing 10 friends die rather than one corpse).
2.) Wounded/dead hostiles don't cause horror to military forces ever. Wounded/dead hostiles also cause dramatically reduced horror to civilians (the only times civilians should be disturbed by hostile corpses is if there's A LOT of them or if the civilian in question is a complete pacifist).
Additional InformationUploaded save here: [^]
Goblins should siege the fortress very quickly at the start of the season.

Fun fact... If a dwarf or creature dies on the path that traders use, they often times become horrified and drop everything they are carrying, leaving you free loot.

These reactions are much less frequent now, although there should still be some balance/nuance especially as it relates to people in/used to combat.
