For those cunningly thinking "Surely the clock could be stopped....", well, you'd be wrong.  For starters, I hid it.  You won't see it on the map, you won't find it by looking.  It is there, somewhere, and ticking away towards the fort's doom constantly without mercy.

With DF hack or something similar, you mean?

More as in vanilla DF.  Of course you could find it with DFHack, but again give me a little creative licensing here...

edit: so has anyone managed to start the power generator yet?  Or watched the Doom Counter tick up a notch or two?

Wow, this is like one of those trolley problem ethics questions. You know... kill one to save five or take no action and let five die. The kind of thing that pits your intellectual conscience against your emotional conscience.

'Course with Dwarf Fortress, the only relevant question is, "How far away will the ASCII gibs splash on landing?"

5 squares per limb, if you raise the north orthoclase bridge before sacrificing one of them so they have a straight shot to the bottom of the chasm.

Ethics? This is bay12. It's not a question of should you kill one to save 5, but rather how many you can kill without causing a tantrum spiral  ;)

That should be a new type of project, making a rug design in dwarf fortress (With accurate coloring)
"And so, after many deaths and much sacrifice, someone turned their fortress into a fully functioning self aware carpet that actively sought after sources of fresh blood."

Personally I think the answer to that question is rather clear cut as you've phrased it, and the ethics don't get sticky until you get into the specifics of the choice of whom to sacrifice or accounting for the free will and knowledge of the five of the dilemma.

By the way, don't think of getting clever and sending prisoners off the Bridge of Death.  I weighted it accordingly just for citizens.... Man, I'm a little too methodical in my evil, aren't I?.... I don't know if that's a good thing.

Just downloaded, although it is too late to fire up Dwarf Fortress, so I might take a few days to find a sizable chunk of time in which I can play the game and enjoy it, not having to worry about mom calling me up to do Homework or anything.
