I wanna see what happens when you launch a gobbo straight up and then let him fall. It's partially unrelated, but it can be done via minecart.

so basically, there is some kind of inverse force field around the fortresses that makes it so anything actually living in the fort cannot leave? thats interesting. I find your whole test interesting. continue sir, let us see what else you may find. how about if something is pinched between the edge and a flying cart? would it have the same result?

I told them. I told them all. You can never leave.

Such a beaten face
Plenty of room at the Fortress California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can death it here

Only wild animals, fleeing thieves and siegers and caravans/diplomats are allowed to leave. Or Dwarves too, if they leave in a burial receptacle..

You can fling full coffins of the map edge? Do the dwarves still count as buried?

I was thinking more like offering them to the mountainhome caravans so they can go back home.

You can have full coffins that aren't built?

1. Build coffin
2. Put dead things inside via burial
3. De-construct coffin

I thought that coffins emptied when deconstructed. Could you test and screenshot? My current fortresses have a disturbing dearth of dead dwarves.

I suppose I could test that when I get home, if I remember to do so.

But others might prefer to have the mess contained behind windows to avoid tracking blood all over the their nice, color coordinated floor patterns. Kind of the Ozzy Osborne vs. Martha Stewart debate.

If I sell a coffin with a corpse in it...will it cause a ghost to haunt the fortress? If not, my fortress's main export is going to be masterwork obsidian coffins; complete with with body!

Just remembered I don't even get trade caravans anymore, so someone else'll have to pick it up :(
