Try a few mods. Genesis is popular, but if you really want a challenge try the Fortress Defence mod. IMO FD is a little too challening - literally constant state of siege from the start of year two - meaning no migrants, caravans, nothing but enemies.

Or in the vanilla game embark in a desert, on a glacier, on a haunted biome with a stream (oh my!). Use as few embark points as possible, do a hermit challenge. Or, of course, a megaproject.

Colonize this shit the proper way, now. Or make a gigantic obsidian factory. Start playing with magma a bit more. A temple to Armok sounds good, but make sure you put the "mega" in megaproject for that one.

I was thinking such a thing. My idea is that I become a barony (whenever the liaison wants to ask me about it, I've definitely gotten past that point in terms of wealth and population), I throw the baron and his nice noble friends into a giant, self-sufficient, entirely sealed temple down there, smooth out the adamantine a bit for flow purposes... and then, as a giant middle finger to the demons, breach the magma sea in all four of the adamantine shafts. Any other touches or ideas?

Congratulations, you are now the second person (that I've seen) to colonize hell.  Those Demonic Plump Helmets must be tasty!

What everyone else has said sounds good.  Mega-Temple to Armok, located in Hell (over a pit or two), made of solid Adamantium with Gold Trim.  Place your lucky dwarves in there (hopefully self-sustaining), then flood Hell with magma (may need to seal off the pits/edges for that).

The wasp brutes getting in through the magma sea is caused by swimming creautres being able to path up-<direction> onto up/down stairs with walls beneath them, as far as I can tell. A similar thing happened to me in Towersoared, the community fort, although it was "only" a magma man that killed 21 dwarves.

I'd kind of suspected that the diagonal was what did it. I'm still at least 50% sure that he had to exit using the semi-molten rock, though, because he disappeared from the unit list and I'm fairly sure that I can see the whole magma sea.\

Also, new idea: Since there are no demons left down there, could I explore Hell in adventure mode, boring as it would probably be if I wasn't being constantly demon swarmed?

The demons are technically infinite in number. Explore away. I think you can explore Hell in adventure mode by opening up a demonic fortress too.

Just remember to back up the save of the fortress.
Also, you could leave a way down into the temple before flooding hell with magma. That way dwarves can visit it on pilgrimages!
Can always re-use the backup save and try both!

Actually, I have a save after the demons all died but before I built the staircase to Slade. I'll upload it if anyone wants it for whatever reason. :p

When I saw your staircase into hell and the merchant notification on the bottom of the screenshot I thought briefly that you had managed to get merchants to path into the map through hell.

Hellish merchants. Just imagine what they'd be bringing.
