"Evolved" is a funny word to use in this context. "A planet where gnomes evolved from men?"

I can't remember if any of the hermits stayed long enough to collect their pay at the end of the year. One hermit ran off and was found 3 days later drunk in the local tavern

Quite a few had "ruins" built on their lands for the hermits to live in. They were called "follies".
