See if you can become more popular than Urist, the original Hermit.

I wonder what the hermit's name will be...

A question to more experienced players, since going outside to gather plants and lumber is a bad idea in such a biome, can forgotten be reanimated?

Well, after much trial and error, I just got rid of the old fortress, and got a new one in another zone with the same name.  Annnnnd I just spawned on a shrine.  This will be very... Funnnn...

Edit:  God-DAMN.  Just got some sort of fog roll through, and now I have a yak cow thrall.  Damn, now I can't unload the rest of the stuff from the wagon.  By the way, I sent the other six to fight the Colossus.  All of them died horribly.  Wunderbar.

Uberedit: He's locked inside!  I've made it!  For now, at least.  I managed to make a door.  Woo.

Well, I made it through the Aquifer.  Found a small bit of stone, and dug through it, hoping to make a small base in the caverns.  So far, I have the four major underground plants inside, a couple medical supplies, enough drink to last for a few years at least, and enough food to last more.

I think of dwarves playing beach volleyball when I see the thread title.

This is Dwarf Fortress. Where torture, enslavement, and murder are not only tolerable hobbies, but considered dwarfdatory.

Nice.  What's the name of the hermit?  And what will your defense plan be?

Bonus points for nicknaming the dwarves "Maverick," "Ice Man," "Goose..."

I have begun excavation of the small Cavern Base.  Best case scenario, it'll be constructed and fortified before any creepy-crawlies get in and try to attack my Hermit.  I'm thinking of making some traps to secure myself, and maybe even tame some... pets.

The Bronze Colossus has been preoccupied by those weird zombies from earlier.  Chances are, they'll never die if they haven't yet.  So, since we have that out of the way, I let the other peasants (I reclaimed once trying to get the Hermit inside) build a small shrine before I re-kill them.  Maybe I'll even try to get THEM a small home, away from the Hermit, as a backup dwarfpower force, just in case.

The Cavern Base has begun construction, and I stuck a dwarf in to die in a wooden cabin that locked behind him.  Fun.
