Original Post — Direct link

Was watching a Dwarf Fortress Hermit challenge series and remembered that OR has a pre-built mode that facilitates the same thing as a solo settlement.

Booted it up and got two seasons before I was merc'd by a thief on my island home. Was stabilizing in terms of food output and resources being abundant. But combat seems exceptionally dangerous and unavoidable due to how climbing/random events work.

Anyone have any tips or advice? Hell, I'd even look up a series on it if I wasn't at work. Any info is appreciated!

You can settle on peaceful tiles to avoid hostilities.

Also, try making an underground fort. It's easier to get up and running and defend.

Settle close to another Human settlement to increase the merchant visits. (Within two tiles.) They'll show up and you'll likely be able to buy some weapons and food.
