Defense Room Concept - Escape Hall
« on: November 25, 2020, 12:53:58 pm »

You know those boring traps where you make the entire enemy army fall into a pit and watch them drown?

Well, now, I have created an idea for a more fun alternative!

The Escape Hall is where you put the entirety of the enemy army into a pit, and then sloooowly fill it with water. However! You allow them to escape... if they can make it out of an obstacle course! Cage Traps, Monsters, Spiked Balls, Spikes, and dwarves with arrows!
Want even MORE fun? Swap the water with magma, and make the escape have a direct trapdoor to the circus! Perfect place for some more FUN!

I tried something like that with caged prisoners.
Since i couldn't build at the map edges, there was a path back to my fort.
They walked straight back and got caged again.
I guess they liked the trap gauntlet? ;-)

Have you tried using raised draw bridges as walls at the map edges?
