Hermit?

Is there any reason to keep the hermit alive once you get the acorn? I want the ring.

Nope.
You don't even need him alive to get the acorn.

The only things you need him alive for is the elven armor bit and the book.
Trade him for those, then you can kill him for the rest.

Can someone tell me what the book actually is? and if it's worth trading for...

It's a codex entry.

You should have gotten a book of poetry or such from one of the elves in the camp.
You just trade him that.

A silver ring will get you the helm.

Can you kill him? I'm playing a good character so I didn't, but I wanted to see what the other items were (other than the acorn I already traded him for) so I saved and went to kill him and he just teleported away.

You can't kill him unless you inspect the stump and steal what's inside. (1 + con ring)

Another interesting tidbit of information is that it seems you can't get the con ring unless you trade him for the acorn.... oh well, I still got his ring and I can live without the con one. :) thanks again and sorry for the double post.

You can either attack him through the conversation, or poke about the stump and he'll attack you.
