That brings up an interesting philosophical argument. Should I destroy the city, driving the people away for the sake of a single child, and slaughtering hundreds in an instant? Or should I turn my back and simply allow the continuation of a system literally built on human suffering?

Though to be perfectly honest, I'd probably forgo physical destruction as opposed to freeing the child and leaving the city to it's fate. Either they abandon or die with the city, or they try to get someone else to replace the child. And I'm sure that wouldn't start a civil war or anything.
