Heya everyone! I couldn't help but notice a severe lack of forum runs going on at the moment, so I've decided to start one of my own!
Basically the rules are simple; participants may choose any available slot and choose a Gen1 CFE official breed and choose a name and gender for it. There are up to six slots but if there is a significant enough amount of interest I may consider raising the number of slots to allow more people to participate. Users wanting to participate can post a response to this thread stating the breed, name and gender they want to choose.
The norns will be distributed evenly to Norngarden 1 and 4, with the norns in the first three slots going to Norngarden 1 and the norns in the remaining three going to Norngarden 4. Norns may move to other rooms of their own accord after this.
Participants are able to switch slots if they request so before the run has started and users wanting to participate may request a specific slot. However for this to be possible, the requested slot has to be available. It is also possible to swap slots with another participant if they agree to it.
The wolfling run takes place in Norngardens 1, 4 and the Xmas room. I have installed elevines in Norngarden 1 to act as a bypass just incase norns are having a hard time taking the lift. I have also broken CA links to the Norn Meso and to the lower levels of Norngarden 4, aswell as sealing the doors (making a solid wall) infront of both sides of the Norngarden 1 -> Norn Meso door and I have also closed off the ramp in Norngarden 4, to prevent norns from leaving the rooms and drowning, likewise I have also removed the lift to the underwater area. A stopperplant is also located in the pond, but only about halfway in so it might be still possible to grab some seeds without drowning. The Norngarden Hub also has three Yoshi toys.
The run will go for 5 hours, one hour each part. Some footage may be recorded in order to give viewers a good look at what the world looks like, however as Youtube limits me to 15 minutes per video I will not be able to record the whole run for it.
And finally, between each part you can vote for which metaroom gets a little helping hand! Valid options are Norngarden 1, Norngarden Hub, Norngarden Xmas and Norngarden 4. Once a decision has been reached, the elected metaroom will get a single Yoshi toy and some food/fruit/seeds dispensed from the Wooden Box (About two clicks)
Participants (including late participants) may also be eligible for a participation prize at the end of the run!
Available breeds (CFE):
Magma (May be a terrible idea to pick this one)
I also forgot to mention that the starting positions of norns will be evenly divided between Norngarden 1 and 4, the first three slots will be in Norngarden 1 and the next three after that are to 4. You can request for a slot change if you already have a slot and the slot you want to swap to is open, and you can request for a specific slot if desired. You can also swap slots with another participant if they agree to it. I'll edit the main post to reflect this.

Like the idea that you'll use the full Garden set!
I'd like to add a Male Siamese named... hmm... Emilio
There you go!
I do have Norngarden 2, but I don't feel like using it for this run because it has various plants and weeds that I don't at all expect these norns to be able to understand, such as the gotchathorns and trasherplants. I am aware of Safe NG2, but NG2 seems to have significantly less food sources compared to the other gardens.
Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. But YOLO.
I'll take a male Magma named Darmani, if there's room left.
There's indeed a slot left over! I'll have about two drop-ins (late entries) slots for part 3 (and onwards if there are still drop-in slots left over), though I might bump it to 4 depending on the population at the time, however in most cases expect 2. (Sorry that I keep introducing new rules into the run, but if anything doing so before the run starts is probably the best time for it anyways.)
Nice Majora's Mask reference by the way, I loved playing through that game more than I did Ocarina of Time, all the different forms of Links allowed for completely different tones of attack, which was amazing. Not to mention the passive effects of some of the forms, such as Goron Link being more fire-proofed than a Goron tunic.
There are no more slots left! Part 1 starts tomorrow.
Current norns: Zeb - Male Zebra Norn - Adult, 1 hour - ylukyun Farene - Female Treehugger Norn - Youth, 58 minutes - jcnorn Tabby - Female Bengal Norn - Adult, 56 minutes - FaerieHawk Ambreen - Female Bondi Norn - Youth, 55 minutes - Arnout Emilio - Male Siamese Norn - Adult, 58 minutes - Uzag Darmani - Male Magma Norn - Adult, 57 minutes - Grendel Man Unnamed - Offspring of Ambreen and Darmani - Unhatched
And so it begins! The first three norn slot eggs were placed in Norngarden 1 whilst the remaining three were placed in Norngarden 4, as intended. The first norn to hatch is Zeb and he immediately goes to the bamboo stalks in order to feed upon the seeds that drop from them.
Hatching after that in Norngarden 4 is Emilio! He walks a bit to the left and lingers around in that area, before eating some of the berries from a local plant. Following him comes Farene, who is born in Norngarden 1. She ventures over to the pond for a brief spell, before making her way right to the bamboo seeds, meeting Zeb along the way.
After that hatches Darmani! He is born in Norngarden 4 and I manage to take a perfect photo of him fully facing the camera for a brief second. He hangs out with Emilio for a while and then Tabby hatches in Norngarden 1! I suddenly notice my medical monitor indicate that Zeb is in mild pain from a brief slap fight which occurred when I wasn't paying attention.
Finally, Ambreen hatches in Norngarden 4! She lingers away from the other norns for quite a while in this part, hanging around at the right side of the Norngarden 4. As the part goes on, we notice that Farene suddenly starts to sneeze. The x-ray indicates that she has a very small concentration of Histamine A, but the medical monitor does not detect it. The sneezing goes on for a while, but eventually ceases. Meanwhile Darmani and Emilio are infront of one other, constantly turning around as if spinning on a single foot like a ballerina.
A few minutes later, Farene moves into the Norngarden Hub, and lingers there staring at the local weeds. She then moves a little bit to the right and rests there. Darmani leaves Norngarden 4 and meets her along the way, however she does not react to his presence neither his push, so he simply walks past her into Norngarden 1. It then appears that Ambreen and Emilio have entered Norngarden 1 without me noticing, leaving Norngarden 4 completely empty.
The world transitions into Summer. Emilio is seen slapping norns often throughout the run for brief periods of time and all the norns except for Farene gather into a group just outside the Norngarden Xmas door.
A few minutes later, the group spreads out some more and Ambreen makes her way to Norngarden 4, all alone, where she lingers around the left side of the metaroom. Later on, Ambreen moves out into the hub, where she pushes a Yoshi toy and stands next to Farene for a few moments, before walking back into Norngarden 4. Emilio moves over to Norngarden 4 for a brief moment and both him and Ambreen walk together to Norngarden 1.
A while later, Ambreen and Darmani move back to Norngarden 4 for a while, and they kisspop! Ambreen lays her egg in the very centre of the Norngarden hub, to which Farene reacts by simply staying where she is, making death sounds and triggering the NearDeath music whenever she is onscreen.
And then we reach the 1 hour mark, ending part 1!
I will be taking name suggestions for the child of Darmani and Ambreen, and don't forget that you can vote in this thread for which metaroom gets a helping hand in the next part!

The Norngarden Hub is a metaroom which is a part of Norngarden 2, but in later versions of Norngarden it will be loaded in to link Norngarden 4 to 1 through this small hub area. It has space for four doors and a special critter vendor (only when Norngarden 2 is in the world). It mostly just has norngarden weeds and ball plants, no actual food sources...unless Norngarden 2 is in the world, in which a TrasherPlant grows in an inaccessible location in the upper left, where it can be used to produce food manually. Tribbles are present here also, but due to the lack of Norngarden 2 in this world, none of those are there which leaves the place as a rather barren in-between room that norns will walk through to get to the other Norngardens.
I have recorded a pair of 15 minute videos from the run that I'm working on uploading. I'll embed them into a post here once they're done.

Hello again everyone! This time in the run the Norngarden Hub was voted to be given a helping hand, so it has had one! Farene is moving once again whilst Darmani has entered the Norngarden hub to witness Armani hatching. It's a girl!
Later on, Darmani kisspops Farene and she gives birth to the female norn Unnamed 1. There's going to be more to come so be prepared to make some name suggestions! Most of the norns have moved into the Norngarden hub, with a few constantly pushing back and forth through the Norngarden 4 door.
A while later, Armani and Unnamed 1 are the only norns in the hub, constantly moving back and forth through the hub and Norngarden 4. Tabby and Zeb kisspop elsewhere and give birth to Unnamed 2, a male mostly zebra norn with some bengal body parts. A while afterwards I notice that a rainbow bamboo stalk has grown to the left in the Norngarden 1, growing tall enough to drop its seeds onto the platform above, in which Tabby happens to be strolling past.
Unnamed 2 is playing near the pond, whilst Unnamed 1 has moved into Norngarden 1, leaving Norngarden 4 empty. Winter arrives and the Big Fish is present in the Norngarden, with Farene constantly pushing it. The lugerleaves are flowering and releasing their seedbugs and Farene later kisspops with Emilio, giving birth to male twins Unnamed 3 and Unnamed 4, which look identical.
Ambreen and Emilio kisspop a few minutes later, giving birth to their daughter Unnamed 5. Not much of interest happened in the remaining minutes and the part has come to a close.
For those who wanted to sign up a norn but were too late to catch a slot, the Drop-Ins for Part 3 are now open! C-Rex, now's your chance!
Oh where did the time go? What was supposed to be one day somehow became two.
I really need to get this under control but it's pretty hard to manage with all the other stuff happening, it might just be one hour but all the (in-game) management and making sure I am able to do a write-up at the end of it can be pretty challenging.

Ah thanks, if that's the case it should be alright if I postpone this run for about a week (next friday) so I can divert more firepower (non-literal) to solving the problems that are coming my way in increasing demand. Though the problems are only partially IRL...
