It isn't fun if you engineer your downfall, mining adamantine is as close as you get. Better keep fighting the good fight. Defeat FPS. (Or retire and start a new fort.)

I thought that people always engineered their downfall. In some way or another. Personally, I find it a better end then just surrendering to FPS.

I just let my traps rust and start running my military everywhere, bring down walls and make the militia my only defense in general.

I do it a lot more classically.
Just remove all of the breweries and farms, let time drain the stockpiles, and then charge headfirst into any and all fights.
Don't bother placing coffins and slabs and you're left with a reasonable amount of dwarves to smash.

Melting Sky, Vjek made me an awesome pocket island where I could get all that stuff and I haven't survived an embark long enough to wall myself into the dirt yet. lol I need some sort of intermediary challenge level. I embarked on an evil spot (sinister) for my most recent fort, but literally nothing evil has happened but it raining a non-syndrome causing elf blood. The worst my fort has dealt with is some mild depression from it.

Depressed by raining elf blood? What sort of pansy dwarves are these?

The kind that don't want to live somewhere that always smells like elf.

Modify dwarf puke to be thermonuclear in temperature.
That will mess up your fort.

...Self-cleaning as well!
