I think he means that the inactivity must be stopped. Therefore, it must become active.

I must say I have been flitting in the lower boards for much too long, thanks for reminding me to get more Cog done, I had almost forgotten about the poor Dwarf!

A blind drunkard of a dwarf, a might-as-well-be-blind drunkard of a dwarf, and an elf that is going to have an exciting adventure or die trying. Surely the kind of group dynamic that all should strive for. :P

Really though, this is awesome. Can't wait till they find a way underground.

The lost update: We got lost in the glaciers, attacked by wildlife, and upon waking up Quarithi was gone. On the bright side, I made it my new year's resolution to finish this saga, or die trying. The ocean is a mean place for blind people who can't swim, thus we go... South west.

With the glacier expedition having been a rousing failure Onget and Cog began turning towards the only expanse left unexplored; the southwest. Days and days went by with the Dwarves' nourished by what crabs they had pilfered from the ocean, supplemented by a particularly hardy wolf Onget ambushed along the way. As time went on the drunks remarked how little of anything there was, they had entered a true wilderness where not even Elf nor megabeast entered - there was nothing but the wilderness, the cold jungle obscured by fog for miles and miles around.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Deciding to make the best of the foul weather, Cog practiced his sneakiness with some hunting. Onget did most of the successful hunting which fed them throughout the expedition, but Cog did manage to successfully catch a turkey!

Cog: 'Onget, seriously how long have we been out here? Feels like 2 years or something, and it's cold, and there are no Dwarves but us, and I ran out of fermented honey badger blood...'
Onget: 'I don't know why you're so undermined, look... We've got beasts.'
*Onget starts waving a crushed wolf skull.*
*Cog still can't see anything, Onget stops waving the skull*
Onget: Why don't we vanquish a great beast and become heroes? The glorious Onget and Cog! Dwarves who kill colossi!
Cog: How I long for civilization. . .

After days and days of roaming throughout the wilderness of the frozen jungle, Cog and Onget decided to backtrack all the way to the north, effectively rendering their explorations to the northwestern peninsula pointless.

The Mine of Cremation. If that doesn't give us access to the caverns, we shall either make the long, long journey south back where we came, or possibly camp out the seasons until winter and see if the oceans freeze over.

You're doing a playthrough of a blind character. Good luck. I've blinded characters before, but never really done much with them.

After days of travel we reached the northernmost isthmus of land, the closest trip away from the cave to the subterranean world, sitting some way away on an island amidst the ocean. We had enough food and water to last a good number of days, potentially weeks; however upon reaching the ocean Cog was met not with a frozen glacier but with the rolling waves. Spring had thawed the ocean, and our efforts were in vain. With some great alarm we set upon returning to civilization to plan our next journey, it was dangerous to stay in the wilderness.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
This was of immense alarm because the closest Elven settlement we had knowledge of was no less than 4-5 days travel away as the crow flies. I had a bad feeling in my gut about this, but with trepidation, roasted some crab over a beachside campfire and set out back into the wilderness.
The first day of travel was fine, yet by the second Cog and Onget were hunted.

The first to notice was Onget, who leapt into battle at once. Cog dropped his barrel full of water and his bag full of supplies; they merely encumbered him too much to fight, and Cog was not going to abandon Onget.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Cog charged into the fray with his warhammer drawn, this was probably a mistake, but it was worth it if it meant saving Onget. The sounds of battle rolled through the forest, the bear did not behave like anything Cog had ever fought before; it would strike him and tear his flesh before melting away into the surroundings.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Cog could hear to his right, behind some trees the clear sounds of violence. It was unclear whether Onget or the bear was winning, but the fight was definitely to the East - thus Cog charged into furor. Cog swung widely, moving as close to the bear as possible, biting it, punching it, but the bear seemed to pay no heed and kept ripping and tearing - it was miraculous that he was not disemboweled. With his left hand Cog managed to grasp the bear's throat, keeping the worse of its biting attacks away from his body. He strangled, constricting, the bear growing desperate and off-balance. Hammer strikes to the head seemed only to make the bear angrier, no bones broken with only bruises to show for his efforts. It came to an end when the bear managed to land a square hit directly through Cog's upper body and into his heart.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Cog grew weaker, blood loss taking its toll.

Cog passed out from the pain.

Unconscious, with a black bear atop him.

Time went by slowly, I feared I was counting the seconds until deceasement.

The world was grey, like it always was.
