Chance of Infection[edit]

I question the implication that a humanoid with a "torn" injury has a chance NOT to become infected. I just watched four dwarves get bitten, and all four were infected. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Has anyone seen a dwarf with a "torn" injury not get infected? Leonidas (talk) 09:18, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Bite Mechanics[edit]

Has anyone figured out the exact details of when a werebite infects someone? I recently had a mechanic bitten and shaken horribly before a friendly lumberjack disemboweled the werewombat assailant. The shaking inflicted massive injuries, but the bite itself only bruised the skin before grasping. The mechanic did not turn, and (barely) managed to survive the recovery process. Can anyone confirm a case in which a werebite both:

1) Failed to break the skin, and

2) Succeeded in infecting the victim?

It'd be VERY nice to know if your dwarves are going to go postal in a month immediately after the battle, rather than AFTER putting them through surgery and carrying out lengthy quarantine procedures.

adv mod times and durations[edit]

It's difficult to be precise, but the full phase appears to last 1.75 days. On 25th Granite it begins immediately at midnight and continues to sunset of the 26th. On 13th Limestone it appears to start around 03:00 and end around 21:00 the 14th. Uzu Bash (talk) 05:49, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Sandstone 10 at sunset until Sandstone 12, ~3 hrs before sunset. Uzu Bash (talk) 04:11, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Timber 8, 3hrs to sunset until noon of Timber 10. Uzu Bash (talk) 09:37, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Moonstone 6 at noon until ~3 hrs after dawn on Moonstone 8. Start transformations appear to occur at the same time as the previous end transformation. Uzu Bash (talk) 00:55, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Opal 4 3 hrs after dawn until Opal 6, 3 hrs before dawn. Uzu Bash (talk) 00:21, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
    • That was probably off. Without better precision I can only estimate the hrs. Uzu Bash (talk) 17:31, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Obsidian 2nd a little after dawn, til Obsidian 4th a little after midnight. Uzu Bash (talk) 17:31, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

List of possible werebeasts[edit]

As the topic suggests, it’d be nice to have a list of all the different kinds of werebeasts in this article (and possibly partial raws for those?) Voliol (talk) 12:32, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
