It wasn't even semi-successful. :(  Five months after embark, and most of the map is covered in magma and fire.  I'm reduced to a wagon, 5 claystone from the mountain home, and 16 dwarfs.  I could have saved it, but I was so mad at myself for doing so many stupid things in a row that I killed the process. >:( 

Protip: Don't play DF if you're half asleep.  You'll make really stupid mistakes.

Also, obviously, magma avalanches and tsunamis weren't exactly a contingency covered in the mission briefing.
I can assure you that Ardentdikes is not the first fortress to be flooded with magma. What's unusual is that we actually meant to flood it with magma.

Therefore you have done it wrong.

Dear Urist McIncinerated,

When you see magma pouring from the ceiling in front of you, don't just stand there and stare at it. I  know it's a pretty red color and all, but we have plenty of other red things in the fort for you to marvel at. Ones which won't kill you and cause a tantrum spiral.

Signed,

Obviously he'd had a few too many "herbs". :P

Dear Urist McDissector,
WHAT THE CIRCUS WERE YOU DOING IN THE CAVE?!
There was a giant flying alligator with a poisonous bite there.
You are dead now.
Should've tried running when you saw it come on the freaking surface.

Sincerely,
An overseer.

Dear Urist McLegendaryMetalSmith

 I understand that bears are frightening. However, is this any reason to make every other lead statue one of a dwarf being struck down by grizzly bears? Seriously, every other statue! I don't know if you're Stephen Colbert in disguise, but please, make more like your earlier works. You know, the one of an elf being struck down by a dwarf. Or how about of our army of tame GCS ripping goblins to shreds. They may not break the sieges just yet, but they sure as hell break the ambushes.

Also, why is that one just...wandering around? Now he wants to sleep? Great, when you wake up grab that training sword on the ground and get to work. Yes, it's a little burnt; no, I don't care. Stupid dwarf!
Oops, wrong thread.
EDIT: First dwarf, good job at getting to practice.
Other two: You have no job. What is wrong with you two?
'Nuff said.

Sounds successful to me.

Dear hunters,

I have recently realized that you have hunted elk birds to extinction.
Please do not do that.

an overseer.
