100 Posts at the Realm   Grendel_Man | 1/18/2015discuss  3 comments  3  log in to like post  6

100 Posts at the RealmI've finally managed to make 100 blog posts at the Realm. It took me a long while to do it, but I think it's worthy of a celebration. And wouldn't you know it, I have just the thing...or things, rather.

There are three new releases that can be obtained at the Realm: the Darwin Grendels, robust survivors that were gengineered from the results of a 100-generation wolfling run; the Garden Grendels, the predecessors to the Darwin Grendels; and an acorn patch plant for the Garden Box.

Hopefully one of these tickles your fancy!

Merry Christmas from the Realm!   Grendel_Man | 12/25/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  4

Merry Christmas from the Realm!For once Grendel Man actually sticks somewhat to a schedule. Albeit it's only because he worked on stuff before the due date, but that's getting a little off topic.

The Realm has a pair of new genomes for everyone to try out! Release one is the breed version of the CCSF Artemia Grendels, while the other is a new genome for Tomtschek's Aquanorns. Neither are actually Christmas-related besides the date they're being released on, but what the hey.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, and I hope you enjoy the new stuff!

CCSF 2014 Day 15: Merry Sheemas!   KittyTikara | 12/12/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  6

Merry Sheemas!Merry Sheemas everyone, it's the last day of the CCSF! Before I dive into the contest winners, I want to thank everyone who send in a submission or entered the contests (releases and contests are the heart of a CCSF, after all)! A special thanks goes to Mea for sending in so many creature packs, and past coordinators for all of their advice for planning out the CCSF! Speaking of planning though, look out for a CCSF 2014 survey around or after Christmas. It's purpose is to collect everyone's honest opinion on how they felt about it, and to also help next year's coordinator learn from this past CCSF.

The contest winners were, C1anddsaddict, Kezune and Mea. Congratulations to the winners! Who won what contest is located above today's release links, and I'll also be talking about a few of the contests here. The contests with only one entry (the Best Agent Idea, Creatchi Fur Pattern, and the Grendel Beauty Pagent), were easily decided since they only had one entry. The Metaroom Decoration Contest winner, as voted on by the community, was C1anddsaddict and it certainly fit the Sheemas spirit! The last contest, the Creature Breed Evolution one, was won due to Mea's slightly more interesting backstory, and also for being easier to make in C3/DS. Though both were interesting enough that I think I'll try make Allekha's Ettins after I'm done with Mea's. Two contests are still open, Grendel Man's genetic breed contest and Ron's trivia contest. Ron's trivia answers are due tomorrow, so that everyone has a fair shot at answering today's question.

Here's the last of CCSF 2014's releases! First up is the last of Mea's Plum Feral packs! Second is another pack of time-traveling Norns from me. Then there's a pack of Grendels that were created by Grendel Man for today's big release! Next to last, there's a very unique toy patch plant called Jingle Balls from Laura and Ghosthande! It's a festive little patch plant that's sure to delight your creatures. Last, and perhaps most exciting, is a metaroom called Artemia Sea from Grendel Man and Mea! It's a gorgeous metaroom that has to been seen to be believed!

Ron has the last part to the Sheemas song:

"On the twelth day of Sheemas Master Shee sent to me
Twelve Merry Mermaids
Eleven Hopping Hoppities
Ten Grendels-a-Grinning
Nine Eaten Elevators
Eight Mucos-a-Mubbling
Seven Norns-a-Napping
Six Eggs-a-Hatching
Five Goooold Gaaadgets!
Four Singing Portals
Three Musicolas
Two Clapping Hands
and Some Ettins from Old Albia!"

Ron has been helping some Shee decorate their ships today. While on board, he heard all sorts of tales of mystery and woe from the Shees, but one stood out for him. There was a legend of a seamonster who would help Norn fishers by herding in the Zander fish for them. In return they shared a part of their catch with him. He was so wrapped up in their tale that he stubbed his toe! So his last question for CCSF 2014 is: Was there ever a sea monster in Creatures? (Answers for all of the questions should be submitted by tomorrow. If you get them all right, then you get to take Ron home! He's a lovely C1 Norn baby).

Contest Winners:
Best Agent Idea: Mea
Creatchi Fur Pattern: Kezune
Creatures Breed Evolution: Mea
Grendel Beauty Pageant: Kezune
Metaroom Decoration: C1anddsaddict

Releases:
The last of Mea's Plum run!
Another pack of time-traveling Norns from 2011 from KittyTikara!
A pack of special Grendels from Grendel Man!
A very fun patch plant called Jingle Balls from Laura and Ghosthande!
Finally Artemia Sea, a gorgeous underwater metaroom from Grendel Man and Mea!
 
CCSF 2014 Day 14: Creatures and Words!   KittyTikara | 12/11/2014discuss  1 comment  1  log in to like post  3

Creatures and words!Contest update time! Contests closed yesterday, and you can view the entries here. Only one of the contests that could be voted on, the Metaroom Decoration Contest, has enough entries to vote on. It can be voted on here! Voting ends late tommorow. The other contest that had more then on entry, the Breed Evolution one will be decided by me, and the winner for that will likely be announced tomorrow.

Before I get to today's releases, there's a new Festive Alpha Run that started today. It's open to submissions until Sunday!

Today's releases are either creatures, or things written about them! There's the second pack of creatures from Mea's Plum Runs. They are Grendels this time, and they faired better then her first plum pack! The second pack of creatures for today is from me. It's a pack of creatures from 2009 that I found! The next release is a pack of wooden toys from Allekha. There's sure to be a new favorite toy for your creatures among them! Then there's the last part to the Handish Wonderings, also by Allekha! The last release for the day is a Veridia Metaroom Showcase from me!

Here's the next part to the Sheemas song:

"On the eleventh day of Sheemas Master Shee sent to me
Eleven Hopping Hoppities
Ten Grendels-a-Grinning
Nine Eaten Elevators
Eight Mucos-a-Mubbling
Seven Norns-a-Napping
Six Eggs-a-Hatching
Five Gold Gadgets
Four Singing Portals
Three Musicolas
Two Clapping Hands
and Some Ettins from Old Albia!"

Ron doesn't know what Grendels evolved from. He thinks they came from some desert animal, but he isn't to sure which one it was. So his question of the day is: What Desert Terrarium animal is the supposed ancestor to the Grendel?

Releases:
The second Plum Run from Mea!
A pack of time-traveling Norns from 2009 from KittyTikara!
A pack of wooden toys from Allekha!
The last part of the Handish Wonderings by Allekha!
A Veridia Metaroom Showcase by KittyTikara!
 
The Realm's C3/DS Download Page Revamp   Grendel_Man | 12/10/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  3

Since the Realm's C3/DS Download Page was getting large and bloated, I decided to split it up into three separate pages for the convenience of those seeking a particular variety of downloads.

Feel free to give it a look-see, and please tell me if something's in a state of non-functionality. Hopefully that rhyming won't get to your head.
 
CCSF 2014 Day 13: A Nornish Deadline!   KittyTikara | 12/10/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

ialwaysforgettoaddpicIt's a really nice week to be a Creatures fan, isn't it? Not only is the CCSF running, but there's a wonderful community event going on. To make things even better, there's even an official livestream of Creatures Online that starts tomorrow! Check out those links for more info.

Also, the contest deadline is today. Since most contests have only received 1 entry, the deadline has been pushed until 11 PM CST. Voting will start tomorrow, and end on December 12th. If there aren't any entries for that particular contest, then it will be closed. If only one person has entered, then they are obviously the winner. Ron's trivia contest will continue to run for another two days. The prize for completing all of his daily questions correctly is taking him home with you! He's a baby Ron Norn from C1, and around generation 5.

Today's releases are all about Norns! First up is the last random group from Mea. She also has the first pack of creatures from when she was testing out her very colorful plums! The third release is a very catchy Creatures Village Medley from Layla. It's quite catchy! Then there's a Norngarden Metaroom Showcase by OctoberFlash! Lastly, there's a pack of generation 400 Norns from me!

Ron has the next part to the Sheemas song:

"On the tenth day of Sheemas Master Shee sent to me
Ten Grendels-a-Grinning
Nine Eaten Elevators
Eight Mucos-a-Mubbling
Seven Norns-a-Napping
Six Eggs-a-Hatching
Five Gold Gadgets
Four Singing Portals
Three Musicolas
Two Clapping Hands
and Some Ettins from Old Albia!"

Ron knows the answer to today's question, though he wishes he didn't. He finds hoppities very creepy, and wishes they would leave his carrots alone. Anyway, his question for the day is: The hoppity is the forerunner to what creature?

Releases:
The last of Mea's random creature packs!
A group of creatures raised on plums from Mea!
A Wonderful Creatures Village Piano Medley by Layla!
A Norngarden Metaroom Showcase by Octoberflash!
A pack of gen 400 Norns from KittyTikara!
 
CCSF 2014 Day 12: A Toxic Sheemas!   KittyTikara | 12/9/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  2

A Toxic Sheemas!Quick reminder, the deadline for the contests is tomorrow! I've actually had some luck with Toxic Norns in the past. The first time I had any success with them was raising them in the Crypt with those toxic quirky cookies. They lived a long time and actually had a few babies, who I think died early on. My latest success with them is raising a few Toxic Mermaids, which are one of today's releases in fact.

Speaking of today's releases, it's a slightly toxic-themes day. There's two more random packs from Mea! There's also small group of Toxic Mermaids from me. They're basically normal Toxic Norns, except they can swim and they're based on Malkin's Toxic genome! The fourth release, and what gave today it's theme, is Kezune's Garbage Dump Metaroom Showcase! Then there's her and Mea's Shelf Mushrooms. They grow perfectly on your trees, and there's even a mushroom for Toxic Norns! Last, and perhaps most cutest, is Mea's picture called "Run Away!"

Ron has the next part to the old Sheemas classic:

"On the ninth day of Sheemas Master Shee sent to me
Nine Eaten Elevators
Eight Mucos-a-Mubbling
Seven Norns-a-Napping
Six Eggs-a-Hatching
Five Gold Gadgets
Four Singing Portals
Three Musicolas
Two clapping Hands
and Some Ettins from Old Albia!"

Ron wants to impress a Toxic Norn with how much he knows about Toxic Norns, but he can't remember the name of an agent that comes with the Toxic Norn pack. So his question is: What is one of those bouncing bugs from the Toxic Norn breed pack called?

Releases:
Two different packs of random creatures from Mea!
A picture called "Run Away" by Mea!
The Garbage Dump Showcase by Kezune!
The Garden Box Shelf Mushrooms by Kezune!
A pack of Toxic Norns from KittyTikara!
 
CCSF 2014 Day 11: A Togglable Biodome!   KittyTikara | 12/8/2014discuss  comment  log in to like post  1

A Togglable Biodome!The Biodome, Veridia, and The Freedom room are all the most customizable metarooms, at least in my opinion. The Biodome has customizable backgrounds, which never ceases to amaze me. Veridia has enough spots for patch plants, that you can make all sorts of things grow in it. The Freedom room has it's own masonry kit which can be used in all sorts of ways. All of them have their downsides, like Veridia's broken elevators, or the Freedom Room's slightly boring background, but they are all really solid rooms. Put all three of them together and you get an amazingly customizable world!

Today's releases are both useful and informative! First there's two grab bags of creatures from Mea. They are randomly chosen from her Feral Runs, so you're sure to find a few creatures you like! The next release is a Biodome Metaroom Showcase by Nutter. It's an interesting read, especially if you like the Biodome! The last release is the Grettin Switch by Kezune! It lets you turn off interaction with Grendels, Ettins and even Geats!

Ron has the next part to the Sheemas song:

"On the eighth day of Sheemas Master Shee sent to me
Eight Mucos-a-Mubbling
Seven Norns-a-Napping
Six Eggs-a-Hatching
Five Gold Gadgets
Four Singing Portals
Three Musicolas
Two Clapping Hands
and Some Ettins from Old Albia!"

Ron is interested in swimming, but he wants to make sure there are friendly Norns underwater, not mean ones. He knows the Mermaid Norns are usually nice, so his question of the day is: Was there an Aquatic Norn for Creatures 1 or 2?

Releases:
One pack of random creatures from Mea!
Plus another pack of random creatures from Mea!
The Biodome Metaroom Showcase by Nutter!
The Grettin Toggle from Kezune!
