ZedaphPlays joined the server in the 1.11 Exploration Update, though they later updated to version 1.12. This season consisted of 59 episodes, the first being released on 13 March 2017 and the final episode on 13 July 2018.
The Crystal Caves
The Crystal Caves were ZedaphPlays' base that he began work on in episode 1, and was made out of white-stained glass, concrete powder, glowstone (later changed to sea lanterns) and quartz slabs.
He also built a skeleton security system, linked with a skeleton spawner as his supply, pushing them up using pistons with the goal of them shooting any intruder. In his final episode, ZedaphPlays reset this, so when the doorbell was rung, two name-tagged skeletons with Power V bows would start shooting the intruder.
He built an enchantment room and super-smelter room among other things, deciding to leave all his redstone on display through the glass.
The Lake of Life
In episode 4, ZedaphPlays finds a lake, declaring it his lake of life. The lake of life is a large collection of an assortment of farms, including a cow farm, an automatic carrot farm and an automatic potato farm.
He then built a minecart and chest system to collect all the items from each farm and bring them back to the Crystal Caves.
Lake Honk was designed to be a paradise for villagers, setting up a secret underwater breeding facility to produce more villagers, using water streams to send them to the island around Lake Honk and populate the island. This didn't work on the first attempt however, as the baby villagers swam to the centre of the lake due to villagers automatically going to a collection of villagers within 64 blocks of them.
ZedaphPlays then fixed this problem, making trading stations underwater and building a secret base with a hidden sand door.
The Gaming District
ZedaphPlays set up the Gaming District in his 18th episode on a mycelium island so that mobs couldn't spawn. He terraformed the land as far as he could. He even made a currency specifically for use in The Gaming District, made of Sunflower heads and renamed to Hermitoken, even adding a seal of legitimacy to each of them.
Many games were added to it, including the game show, Is That Sheep Looking At Me?, the HotSwap challenge and Chorus Chaos. Winding paths made out of smooth andesite, acacia wood and smooth stone paths were made throughout the entire district, with varying levels of height. XisumaVoid noticed the advert ZedaphPlays made in episode 21, adding colourful sections and nearly covering all of the mycelium.
The HotSwap Challenge
TangoTek and ZedaphPlays teamed up to do the HotSwap Challenge, a challenge where you have to collect different valuable items during a time limit, gaining points and aiming to earn more as a pair than all the other hermits. This challenge quickly took off, prompted TangoTek and ZedaphPlays to build a place explaining the rules and showcasing every pair of Hermit's scores.
Is That Sheep Looking At Me?
In his original singleplayer world, ZedaphPlays created a game show, titled: Is That Sheep Looking At Me? He decided to create the same game on the Hermitcraft server, building an entire game show designed for three contestants.
In episode 4, Worm Man makes his first appearance, but his identity is unknown at that time. Very shortly, Evil Xisuma volunteers to be his sidekick, with Worm Man being oblivious to Evil Xisuma's dodgy background.
Then when the Hermits don't believe in his heroism, claiming he has yet to prove himself, he hijacks part of ZedaphPlays' 25th episode, escaping from a room using his knowledge and wits to prove that he is the hero that the Hermits deserve.
Evil Xisuma ended up betraying Worm Man, trapping him in a prison as expected from anyone with any experience of his past evil deeds. However, Evil Xisuma then had a change in heart, using TNT to blow Worm Man out of prison.
ZedaphPlays built Worm Man and Evil Xisuma both gift shops, giving away free merchandise to anyone who wished to celebrate their work for the server, though nobody but Evil Xisuma bought any at first. ZedaphPlays also collaborated with Worm Man to write Worm Man's autobiography.
ZedaphPlays was often suspected to be Worm Man, however ZedaphPlays has denied it several times.

This is ZedaphPlays' 2nd season in the 1.13 Aquatic update, though they later updated to 1.14. This season consists of 43 episodes, the first being released on 19 July 2018 and the final episode on 25 February 2020.
ZedaphPlays decided in this season to be a true Hermit, and not have any one base, instead choosing to have several dotted around the server. These bases include: His Desert Pyramid, his Iceberg Base and The Woo-Den.
The Desert Pyramid
This was the first base ZedaphPlays created in episode 3, building it in the desert as the name suggests. He built a massive pyramid out of sandstone with an endstone floor, using gold blocks and cyan wool for detail. After dying off camera, ZedaphPlays built a wrench lock - using a non-vanilla tool called the wrench to move glazed terracotta in a circle, triggering an observer and opening the door. He also build a semi-automatic sugarcane and cactus farm underneath, and a bedcophagus in the middle.
This was the second base ZedaphPlays built, starting it in episode 4 in an ice biome. Most of the iceberg ZedaphPlays built was underwater, with a tiny bit peeping out from the top of the water; this section was cut off from the underside and filled with water and fish, and even a dolphin! It was built out of cyan glass, with a prismarine spiral going down multiple layers to the bottom. ZedaphPlays built a cryogenic-stasis based bed, using a minecraft glitch to give the impression that he was going into cryogenic stasis. However, Mojang fixed this glitch, leaving ZedaphPlays to come up with a new bed design. The new bed design was an underwater bed, using a slime block to push him up so he could sleep in the bed, with him falling through a trapdoor upon waking up.
In this base, ZedaphPlays had a polar bear called Minty. He mainly resided on the 3rd floor.
This base was built in episode 12, as a massive jungle tree in a jungle biome, using slime blocks and pistons as elevators. Then ZedaphPlays built a 'Root Chute' - a tunnel that you enter via a boat, a slime block propelling the boat over ice and ending out on the sea.
This base is ZedaphPlays' Season 6 Nether base, originally created in episode 18 under a lava lake. It had a floor of dead coral, with the walls and ceilings being made of iron bars and nether fence. ZedaphPlays also made a lava-smelter, using lava as the fuel for the furnace. The entrance was simply jumping into the pool of lava above with a fire-resistance potion and falling through the gaps.
In episode 26, ZedaphPlays made a hobbit-hole style base in a flower forest biome, having a spherically shaped interior coated with dirt. The floor was made of grass, that was meant to transform into dirt whenever he left the base, with the grass beginning to race every time he re-entered. This never became a reality. ZedaphPlays also built a greenhouse in the same biome, made out of polished andesite and green glass.
Connected to this area, ZedaphPlays built a skeleton farm to collect bones to turn into bonemeal. He used the spare arrows to fill up a line of dispensers, all of which fire when a line of tripwires are triggered; this speeds up the item collecting and pushing the skeletons into the water streams.
For more details, see Tag.
ZedaphPlays was tagged by ImpulseSV in episode 4, as punishment for breaking into iTrade without paying. He was made to wear the dunce hat as punishment for getting tagged. ZedaphPlays then tagged TangoTek while he was doing a livestream following that, meaning he was no longer it.
Quartz, Warts & Shorts
Quartz, Warts, & Shorts was the name of ZedaphPlays' shop in the Shopping District. As the name suggested, he sells nether quartz, nether warts, and colourful leather leggings (shorts). It was established in the first week of the season as a means of paying rent to PythonGB while he took residence in his house. The building itself was meant to resemble a giant pair of leather shorts stuffed with quartz and warts. Beneath the building was a nether wart farm only he can access that is used to stock the shop.
ZedaphPlays noticed that Grian was selling quartz at a cheaper price, so he started buying Grian's quartz then selling it in Quartz, Warts & Shorts. Consequently he was banned from Grian's shop.
For more details, see ConCorp.
In episode 5, Convex (later renamed to Concorp) formally banished ZedaphPlays from the Hermitcraft main isle. This never came to anything, as ZedaphPlays however did not participate in the Hermitcraft civil war, Sahara, Area 77 or any other interactions with Concorp. He did hire a studio for his mini game from Concorp studios, courtesy of XisumaVoid.
In episode 13, ZedaphPlays died, consequently becoming death and challenging each Hermit to get to 0 health (die) as fast as they could, putting them all on a leaderboard. Afterwards ZedaphPlays came back to life, digging out of his grave and getting straight back to work. On Halloween the next year, Death awarded MumboJumbo with his prize.
MumboJumbo ended up with a time of 3 seconds.
Rendog ended up with a time of 6 seconds.
TangoTek ended up with a time of 13 seconds.
FalseSymmetry ended up with a time of 14 seconds.
Cubfan135 ended up with a time of 14 seconds.
iJevin ended up with a time of 14 seconds.
Grian ended up with a time of 15 seconds.
XisumaVoid ended up with a time of 24 seconds.
ImpulseSV ended up with at time of 39 seconds.
DUCK was ZedaphPlays' mini-game in Hermit Land. It was a free-to-play single-player game where the player would run through a designated course sneaking, crawling, swimming, and bouncing on slime blocks to escape. Players recorded their times and wrote it in a book provided at the finish line, and recorded their best times in a separate book. It used half-slabs and pistons to make the ducking effect, and it was made out of red terracotta and polished andesite.
Is that Sheep Looking at Me?
This gameshow was originally conceived in ZedaphPlays' singleplayer world, however, he brought it into Hermitcraft Season 5, and again into Season 6, this time with an improved entrance, varied rounds and elimination system for the losers.
In the last registered episode of the show, the winners of all 3 previous rounds went head to head against each other in a festive special to determine the winner. XisumaVoid, TangoTek and Keralis all participated in round one, with TangoTek being first eliminated and Keralis being eliminated in the final round, leaving XisumaVoid as the ultimate 'Is that Sheep Looking at Me?' champion.
The RGB Game
The RGB Game stands for many things, as the comments section suggested this name in many different formats, such as Rapidly Gather Blocks or Randomly Grabbed Blocks, and the game consists of red, green and blue blocks being randomly flung in one of 3 directions. Each block goes in one hopper out of the 3 placed to get a point, but if it's not going in the right direction, the hermit loses a point. To stop it from entering the wrong hopper, they can jump to catch the block, and all caught blocks can be fed back into the system. The game ends when all the blocks have gone into the hoppers.

This is ZedaphPlays' 3rd and most recent season, beginning on 28 February 2020, and currently still going on. This season began in the 1.15 update, though they later updated to the 1.16 Nether update.
For more details, see The Cave of Contraptions.
ZedaphPlays' base is in a hollow mountain north of the Shopping District which he has named The Cave of Contraptions. The plan for the season was to fill the mountain with contraptions that are purposely inefficient for comedic effect, such as a jump-powered furnace, a lapis dispenser and a bed that wakes you up randomly on either the right side or the wrong side.
This connects to a greenhouse outside of the mountain, with a staircase going between them. The greenhouse is a dome made completely out of green-stained glass, and ZedaphPlays has many manual farms there, such as wheat and potato farms. Later on, ZedaphPlays added a bone-meal farm, shaped like a Venus flytrap with a flower farm hidden inside and a piston motion that gave the impression the plant was chewing the greenery. ZedaphPlays built a 6x6 piston door at the top of the mountain, activated by target blocks and letting hermits fly in and out freely.
He also made a security system, similar to the one in Season 5 in which baby-zombies (Collected from Contraption #002 (Zombie Plinko)) with speed and iron swords would chase the Hermits around The Cave of Contraptions.
The Dinghy Race
The Dinghy Race is a minigame involving bells. It was intended to be a multiplayer game in which two Hermits go against each other to hit bells. ZedaphPlays recruited Hermits to complete more Dinghies in the game, but ultimately it was never completed. Instead, ZedaphPlays and ImpulseSV blew up the dinghies in ZedaphPlays' episode 36 and permanently ended the minigame.
The Head Games
ZedaphPlays signed up for PvP in the head games, and almost immediately after was killed by Grian for his head. However, he was never shown taking any more role in the games on camera, not killing anyone for his head, nor getting killed for his head.
You Owe Zedaph
This is ZedaphPlays' shop, in which he gives a Hermit a random favour in exchange for an IOU of 2 diamond blocks. Cubfan135 was allowed to rename one of ZedaphPlays' contraptions, choosing to rename The Actual Sun and Moon to Cub's Celestial Cosmodrome.
ZedaphPlays made a game of Crazy Golf, using armour-stands and the knockback enchantment, recruiting ZombieCleo to help make the armour-stands look like balls. After he completed 3 holes, he recruited Cubfan135, XisumaVoid and FalseSymmetry to test the game, with him coming first with 8 points, and the others with 9, 13 and 14 respectively. He then ran through the course once it had 9 holes, getting a score of 36.
Hermitcraft Big Base Swap
For more details, see Hermitcraft Big Base Swap.
After the events of HCBBS, ZedaphPlays got the deed for Grian's G-Mansion, and Grian got the deed for The Cave Of Contraptions in his Season 7 Episode 67. ZedaphPlays moved into the mansion, and after exploring, began to add contraptions there as well. Contraption #001, The Dumb Waiter, connects the lower level to the upper level of the base in a safe, though slow, way. Contraption #002, The Getter Upperer, launches one into fly mode and gliding out of the building after sleeping in the bed.
They have since switched back, shown in Grian's Season 7: Episode 70, with Grian using a Zoucher, given to him by TangoTek in exchange for an IOU, to get the deed back. Grian then gave the deed for The Cave Of Contraptions back to ZedaphPlays. Zedaph later made TangoTek pay him two diamond blocks for giving Grian the Zoucher.
