Not sure you can do anything extra with it. About bringing more of the same thing, I've noticed the other caravans bring more and more anvils every year. It's kinda annoying 'cuz I gotta take some of those anvils off their hands so they can take my dwarven syrup, which is surprisingly heavy.

Give it as a "pet" to the baron, so they can have AIDS fun!

Thanks!  I was wondering if this bug still existed, but hadn't seen it myself.  I'll link your post on the bug report.

Set it free, make sure you have a lot of meat available.

The tigerman will hang around the meeting hall all day, chatting with people and becoming friends with the whole fortress.

If you're lucky, it may become your mayor.

Don't let him in a cage though, or he'll starve.

yeah and don't let it die of thirst--they won't drink booze, or water from a well, you need a pond accessible by ramp

It will eventually become mayor and even baron, demanding nothing and remaining in its pasture for convenient emissary visits.

Say I have some trolls stockpiled is there anything I can do to make them friendly? They were captured during a siege.

Add [PET] to the raw entry, maybe, and tame them like animals.

Adding [PET] will work on trolls captured from the caverns, but ones that come from a siege are bad news to tame - even if they don't have any kills, they still act hostile like they do.
