remember, we're doing this for money and to unwind. although the whole 'video games aren't real and we're only doing it for fun' argument sort of falls when you trap semi sentient beings, then breed and slaughter them for there bones.

I'm sorry i have to be the one to tell you this, but the money aint real either.  :(

People used to slaughter whales and dolphins by the thousands for their fat and bones, remember? It's not like this is a new and horrible innovation.

Rather than having them directly force you to mine adamantine, I would suggest that they give you strange moods that require adamantine. "Dig out the adamantine or Urist here goes insane and dies" is suitably vicious.

(It occurs to me that you can probably get "Lovecraft" as the random name of your fortress. That's when you know you're screwed.)

Ariel gets kept to make new merpeeps for slaughter.
She'd also be rendered into fat for +Mermaid fat washing powder+

Instead of cage traps you could try pressure plates and raising drawbridges. You wouldn't need  to go get the mermaids they would be delivered right to your front door.

Are.... are you suggesting flinging live mermaids out of the ocean and into the fortress via drawbridge-powered catapult? Perhaps into some spike-lined holding tank to ensure they die on impact, so your butcher can get to work right away?

I just evilgasm'd into my pants.
