Hillocks (Ω) are the dwarven equivalent of hamlets, a type of site constructed above-ground and usually on the peripheries of dwarven territory. Hillocks consist mainly of various hills that have been hollowed out and installed with a door. Other areas (where terrain doesn't permit isolating a small hill) consist of a small room linked to the surface by a short stairway, and covered by a hatch.

Some of these structures will be referred to as drinking mounds, usually populated by various dwarves quite aptly titled drunks. There are also civic mounds and castle mounds, generally inhabited by the various local nobles and soldiers.
