I think implementing a currency system would be a good idea. Reactions that use different types of currency as reagents, and likewise ways to get currency (albeit probably with chance or risk). A market or bazaar would work, or just individual merchant stalls. Maybe a slave market?

A market/bazaar would be interesting. Perhaps it would allow for the hobgoblins to obtain things they cannot have otherwise.
And a slave market could work too... But how to make this work?

That's a good point, I've actually been trying to figure that out myself. With DFHack it's doable, though there's the difficulty of implementing it without either making it pointless or hilariously overpowered. But without DFHack? That's a good question.

I've got working (basic) slavery. Basically just make a second pet version of every intelligent race, give them skills so they'll automatically have assigned labors, give them petvalues of course, and have them always be owned by the hobgoblins but no others (because obviously they don't have biomes or the [COMMON_DOMESTIC] tag). Easy peasy, and it kinda works maybe with the hobgoblins having all the manual labor done by slaves (and also being able to sell you slaves if you're playing as someone else).

EDIT: I mention this because I figure it might help with your mod.

I believe this is something I will try out, Dunmeris. Thank you for the suggestion.

Anyway, for everyone else, I have made a new poll. Answer away.

For another dwarven subrace, I'd go with something like Deep Dwarves. Which are more or less just a "legendary" or really hard to find/reclusive race of dwarves. Where they are SKULKING (to avoid wars) and have no active seasons and live in Caves (like kobolds) but their main goal is they are master craftsmen (they have castes are are legendary weaponsmiths and armorsmiths, and can have moods to make artifacts). The Deep Dwarves are also privy to a special type of steel, shimmer steel. Which is an impossible to recreate method of combining diamonds with iron and another substance that no one seems to know what it could be, to make something heavy like steel, but hard and sharp as diamonds, but still springy. Making it a very sought after metal but only artifacts that have been managed to be found (by thieves or adventurers) seem to be the only existence telling that they are real.

They are also castes that are very adventurous and strong and great at fighting. Making them ideal for any fortress that happens to have one decide to leave the hidden depths of the underground to seek new experiences.

Elartks is very cruel and lustful, absolute hate (-50) nature, acceptable eat sapients, required eat sapient kills, kill enemies/neutrals/animals/plants, have no pets.

Elartks is absolute nature haters (from evil+savage, but this combo not work), encefant is like bugbat (tentacles for not add grasp helicers), accro is trident symmetrical allocarbonic creature, and metalmorph originally was creatures who is semi-robots semi-metallorganic creatures with biological (breed, regenerate) and technical(metal, mechanism) additions, naturally shaped like beaked toads, but can grow wheels, guns etc.

EDIT: On second thought, I'll withdraw this suggestion. It wasn't that good after I had some time to think on it.
