0002405: With temperature off, magma burns items, but not creatures
Two goblins are inside a pit with 6/7 magma and simply don't die!
This fortress was reclaimed once. When I embarked, the previous invaders turned friendly. I built an entrance with 3 bridges over a lava pit, and managed to trap 2 of them there, but they weren't harmed even after some years inside the lava. When the first siege came, they turned hostile, but still unharmed.

Earlier, I accidentally dropped one of my dwarf in the same pit and I thought that he would die instantly. Instead, he suffered lots of bone breaks. When I noticed that he was surviving, I managed to empty the pit, build a stair and rescue the poor fellow, badly broken but still alive.

Expected result: I expected them to burn almost instantly!

Was temperature turned off, perhaps?

Indeed, temperature is off. Does it have anything to do with it?
Because magma is still able to burn cloth and wood itens.

Update: activating temperature killed them instantly in a could of smoke! Cool!

TBH the unexpect behaviour hear is that the inanimate object where still afected by the heat not that the goblins wern't temperate off means lava is effectivly undrinkable water.
