All the Goblin prisoners are stockpiled for later "defensive purposes"... and of course behind many locked doors, raising and retracting bridges and traps, deep in the eternal darkness of the Dwarven Fortress... Once I reach the critical mass of ~~500 prisoners I might have their luck against the clowns, with an escape tunnel to the ground level. Preferably when theres a human siege on.

Goblins make fine test subjects for forgotten beast syndromes.

He he he.  Yeah, it almost looks done...  alas...  those who are in your teens, hold on until your twenties...  those in your twenties, your thirties...  others, cling to life as you are able...<P>It should be pretty fun though.

How do you kill them in the cage?  (Other than atomsmashing the cage with them in it, of course)
i actually am not sure if that's possible, but if it is... that changes everything
I'm pretty sure enemies can die while in a cage. There's been times when I've found goblin corpses in my cages.

  I think what happened is this: When I dumped their equipment, my dorfs also yanked a bolt that lead to a bleed out.

Make a really deep pit, 10 z levels at least.  Hollow out a room 4 z levels tall and engrave everything in there.  Drop an invader down the pit and attempt to read the future/unknown/mysteries of life from studying what limbs land on what engravings. 

Nist Akath did it first, I just use it more... intentionally... and with fewer melancholy dwarves and babies.


When I don't do that I just make them fight in an arena though.  With the promise of escape if they win.

I'm building a prison to let them roam! I might even drop in a piglet or two every now and then!

I've never dealt with prisoners before, but if I did, I'd use the Dwarven Atom Smasher. I'll use magma if any.

I build the cages in a sealed room, flood the room, then pull the lever to release them do their watery death...

Build wooden cage and dump them in magma, or flood the room with magma.

Although if lava resistant cages keep the contents safe inside, I think I just thought of something even BETTER to do with them then.

Girlinhat: The biggest issue seems to be size.  A 1x1 room would allow for maximum child desecration.

Try having a horse be titled: The Mighty Hoof. Tamed that bastard and used him in my murder pit.

I keep hoping that toady will add the 'medical training' option to prisoners. I can just imagine my eager young butchers doctors learning their trade on the hordes of well restrained goblins.
It could function like an assembly line. First you have your dabbling surgeons 'explore' their insides, then you send them to the diagnosticians, actual surgeons and so on.
