Summary0000978: Rotten body parts don't seem to impair dwarves
DescriptionI got attacked by a forgotten beast where (as far as I can tell) its blood causes swelling and necrosis.

So now I have a number of dwarves who got splattered by blood, but are otherwise uninjured. They are Rest-ing in the hospital most of the time, with advanced rot and swelling according to their description screen & the health screen.

However, the (w)ounds screen considers them uninjured - and indeed, they will often get up and do jobs despite 90% of their body being rotten, with no apparent ill effects other than trailing miasma all over the fortress..

As a followup, the dwarves did eventually get yellow damage and then succumb to infection, but it took a long time - over a season - while the "advanced rot" was essentially immediate.

(That was a *nasty* beast. It died fast, but then its blood got tracked around the whole fort..)

Can confirm this with 0.31.12
They will eventually die, but some of them get stuck at the hospital for ever. To reproduce, you need to fight a beast with rotting venom. Something seems to be broken with rotting tissue excision, as doctors will treat One wound, but ignore the others, letting them die.

here is the save: [^]
