My Hand has abandoned me! I was just playing with my favorite ball in the garden, when suddenly I'm whisked away from my home, and dumped with some other Norns in a big blank box! They said that we've been "Ex-por-ted". Now the Hand is playing with a new baby Norn, and she's forgotten all about me. We've tried to get her attention, but she can't hear us! I've always been a good Norn, I eat when I'm told, I always play nice and I shower to stay nice and clean, so why did I get abandoned? How can we get the attention of our forgetful Hand? Can we ever get back to Albia? I miss my ball and eating carrots by the warm fire! I want to go home!
- Forgotten in Albia
Dear Forgotten in Albia,
You might have heard of the 'Santa Norn', a rare breed which has been popping up recently in many worlds. While they may appear jolly, there have been rumours that this is simply a facade. With this in mind, your hand probably exported you just to be on the safe side. Fear not though, I'm sure that once it's established a better feel for the newcomer you'll be roasting yourself by that warm fire once more. Try not to be too jealous; Santa Norns are often accompanied by a phenomenon wherein rain condenses into something called 'snow'. I hear it can be bitterly cold! In the meantime, this could be a good opportunity for you to make some new friends. Who knows, perhaps the big blank box is your gateway to forming a long-lasting friendship back in Albia? Someone to share a carrot with, or three.
