This page violates rule P. Suggest putting the content on Chunk instead.--Draco18s 20:29, 4 November 2007 (EST)

Moved talk page to chunk as well. Jikor
I apologize for all the history changes I forgot to hit preview Jikor

Chunks are produced by unskilled butchers instead of some of the expected meat? Coelocanth

No, chunks are produced, along with meat, by any butcher or slaughter task, regardless of skill.

well, more skilled Axedwarves do produce more chunks *hehehe* --Koltom 13:15, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Where do chunks come under the refuse ordering? Obviously I have missed it as they never get hauled. --Gorfob

Probably under 'other' (o-r-k), but they should be hauled with either setting if you have designated a dump area ('i') ; either to the dump or the refuse pile. --Koltom 13:15, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

make tame animals eat them tbh.... Twiggie 08:32, 19 August 2008 (EDT)


Depending on the type of chunk, it may actually decay into bones; possibly skull. I noticed a Ratman leg chunk (not sure on specifics, just recall "Leg") near beginning of embarkation with my Woodcutter. The corpse decayed into bones (did not check amount specifically) and skull while the leg chunk decayed into a bone (again, did not check amount; assuming [1]).

I'll be careful to take special note in the future to see if its purely humanoid or applies to animals as well. Also, I'm going to assume it's based upon what the chunk is of. A foot or hand chunk may decay into nothing, whilst arm, torso, lower body, etc may decay into bones (number may be based again on area chunk is made of). I can't remember if heads are considered chunks when decapitation occurs; if so I believe they decay into skull. --DracoG 02:19, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

I think you are referring to body parts, not chunks. A leg, arm, hand, feet, head, etc. is a body part and (for all I know) will behave as you describe; A chunk is just a small bit, unuseable, that doesn't produce anything. In combat you can cut off body parts or chunks. --Cmontero 10:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)


Anyone know the token for using these in reactions? Xaque 19:46, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
