You can't do anything. You cannot move without using the dig or build tools, and you can't fight. You die almost instantly if you try to fight the skeletons (labeled "dwarf", I might add), and once you dig a hole, there's nothing for you to do. You can give yourself an anvil, chest, bar, and bed, but none of them do anything. The only way to survive is by digging straight down without the use of a ladder, and staying there while more and more skeletons gather above ground.

I'm having trouble surviving, how do you fight the skeletons ? also, can you move the dwarf without building/digging ?
