Rendog, known as Ren for short, is a South African-British Gaming YouTuber, and is an active member of the HermitCraft server. He joined Hermitcraft at the beginning of Season 4, along with Iskall85, Welsknight, Cubfan135 and GoodTimesWithScar.  He is currently a full-time YouTuber and uploads about every other day. He originally gained his fame through his Let's Play Terraria series. This series ended on Episode 99. His next biggest series was his Let's Play Minecraft series, with the first episode reaching over 1.4 million views as of October 2019. He has 558,000 subscribers.[1]

Season 4

Rendog was part of the Log Fellas and worked on the MOBA Lisa.

Season 5

The Netherboard with part of Iskall85's base at the top.

Rendog shared a base on a mushroom island with Iskall85. He was part of a revolution, and worked on FRED the game. His base was called the Netherboard and was made mostly of black and orange concrete in the Plastic Fantastic style.

Season 6

Ren started Season 6 'fashionably late', and spent the first twenty minutes of his time on the server lost, trying to find his plot of land. He was situated in the fantasy district, on the other side of a river from False. His starter base, the Renhole, was the 'jankiest' base he had ever had. It was dug inside a hill and included a very laggy cooked chicken farm.

He invested all of his cooked chicken into his Stax 4 Stax chicken shop, in which he gave the Hermits a selection of payment options for cooked chicken, as he needed other things more then diamonds.

He quickly began work on his first community project of the server, the HRN - Hermit Railway Network. Spanning the entire hermit island, the HRN was planned to have four main stations, for each cardinal direction, and give the Hermits quick access to anywhere on the main Hermit island.

Rendog also made a storyline about Ren-Bob and helped with the Area 77 storyline with Grian and ImpulseSV.

Rendog's base consisted of Tomato Yoshi's playpen, a training center/sugarcane farm, a dragon tower, and a creeper farm. On the outskirts of his base, he had a dead dragon fossil and floating eye power lifting a chunk of the ground.

Rendog also shared a ravine with FalseSymmetry, sharing a storage system and a super smelter.

He was also the first person to die in the game of Demise. When he died, he created a few nicknames for himself: The Reaper and GrimDog.

Season 7

For his starter base, he was stranded on Loser Island. iJevin stole his mooshroom named Pamela, so he challenged iJevin to a wrestling match when he couldn't pay the ransom (that he later won). He wanted to create a base underneath Loser Island, but he changed his mind when he accidentally blew it up, killing Pamela and destroying all his items. Instead, he moved to the mesa near the jungle where Grian, MumboJumbo, Iskall85, and Stressmonster101 live, forming the Valley of Tatooren.

Valley of Tatooren

Rendog's new base is based off of the desert planet of Tatooine from Star Wars, with a TIE Advanced fighter, a small desert hut, and a sandcrawler. As of now he is working on Darth Vader's Castle, terraforming a large chunk of mesa to volcanic wasteland.

Bigger Logz Inc.

Rendog has rebuilt Big Logz. Inc from Season 6, rebranding it as

The Quadrachopper, as seen in Rendog's Episode 14

Bigger Logz Inc. He has built a large area with a skeleton grinder, a Quadrachopper(tree farm),and a company office. This area has continued to grow, with the recent additions of a sapling nursery, a fungus farm, and item pipelines connecting it all.

Outside of Hermitcraft

Rendog's Let's Play Minecraft series was very popular and grew his subscriber and view count greatly. He made 5 series of the same world each with 100 episodes in them. He finished at Season 5: Episode 34 because he claimed that it brought back too many bad memories. He then created a new Let's Play Minecraft series on 12 September 2017.
