I was just thinking about how a freshly installed Mordor has an initial set of creatures in confinement, and how maybe it should start empty initially, just like your map initially starts out empty. I guess others have explored the dungeon before you and caught these creatures? But if that's so why is the map emtpy? They didn't want to share their knowledge of the dungeon layout? It's just not that logical an argument.

Anyway, aside from points of realism, lets consider what it provides in terms of gameplay. I'm thinking the reason behind having some initial creatures in confinement from the start is to allow players to buy some companions to take down on their first excursion into the dungeon to help them survive. Seems like a great idea since a lot of first character die in their first battle. I'm wondering though if anyone has actually utilized this strategy? For me, the idea didn't even occur to me until just now, prompting me to this post, so never occured to me. Problem is that I suspect the prices are too high for the budget of a first character, so maybe this wasn't really the intention.

So what do you guys think? You think the confinement should initially be empty, or have some creatures there to start with like Mordor has it?

Perhaps some weak (level 1) creatures fled the dungeon, severely injured, after losing a fight and were easily subdued by the city guard. The initial confinement population could be like the intial store inventory, which includes only the most basic of items - e.g., bronze weapons.
