All aboard the bandwagon, woohoo! Sorry, I won't be able to take creature requests like the other runs. I have no idea what's inside any of these eggs, so this one will be a bit different! Everyone likes a mystery, right? The winner of the run will get their pick of the babies of the run, and the rest will be used in a future interactive breeding project. So without further ado, we begin!

*****

(A rather frazzled looking Shee runs over to greet you.)

Oh! Hello there! Are you here for the field trip? Yes! The field trip! All the way back to Albia, in celebration of a Handish festival commemorating the charming creatures that originated there. Isn't that exciting? Now, we just have to- wait, don't touch that! Hold on- No, please d- That's the t-

*CRASH*


Oh, oh dear me...
We've certainly landed on Albia, but oh goodness, when?

(When the dust clears, you turn to view the quiet world about you. It looks as if you've crashed into some sort of garden. The hum of machinery draws you into a cosy, if dusty little lab, with a small, lonely pile of eggs growing cold beside a beeping machine.)

Sweet mother of marzipan, why, this must be Albia as we abandoned it so long ago! Our crash must have started up the genetic processors and churned out a bunch of Norn eggs... We can't just leave them here, can we? I think I've an idea.

(The Shee turns to regard you intently, after haphazardly scrawling numbers on the egg shells.)

Which of these would you like to call your own?

1: Alpha - Laura
2: Storm - Calliope812
3: Zero - Grendel Man
4: Serenity - ylukyun
5: Randomness - savannahs11
6: Ron - KittyTikara
7: Sev - ettinmaniac
8: MoonPie - Clohse
9: Casper - kelzari
10: Alex - HavenHoney
11: Byrane - Congested
12: Creek - Yozi
13: Lucky 13 - Kezune
14: Mad Twig - Nutter
15: Bubber - N/A

(You pick out the prettiest egg, name it, and place it in the incubator...)
It couldn't hurt to give them a chance, right?

Oh, I do hope nobody minds but I won't be able to stream the run this time round. I will post updates though!

Also, if anyone's Norn has a debilitating mutation when they get hatched, (child of the mind, severe gait mutations, etc.) I will hatch a new Norn for them. Likewise, I've got a couple spares in the run (Bubper, for example) who will stand in case anyone's Norn has a mutation that gives them an unfair advantage (such as not needing to eat).

(And with the final egg named, the Shee begins piling the eggs into the incubator. She beams at you.)

Brilliant! Now we watch nature in action. Isn't this exciting?

I'll hatch the eggs tonight and post pictures, and then start the run on Monday. ^^

Here we are, all the Norns of the run. I was too tired to compile them all into one picture, so here's a nice screen shot of my image folder.

They're all off to a great start, save for Alex. >< Unfortunately I ended up exporting her and it won't let me import her, so condolences to HavenHoney, I'm terribly sorry.

We've got a nice mix there! I also love Banana Norns, so I'm pleased with how Alpha turned out. :D Good luck, everyone!

(The Shee scribbles furiously in a small notebook to document the progress of the newly hatched Norns. She informs you of their progress with excitement.)

Great progress so far! They all seem to be adjusting to life quite well, though a few seem adamant on not eating.

(She glances in the direction of Ron and MoonPie, both of whom seem to be hovering around 30%...)

Aside from some unfortunate dieting, they appear quite intelligent and have yet to sample the Death Cap down there, though that seems to be Zero's new hideout. So long as she doesn't munch that mushroom! Maybe you should join Mad Twig in the trees.

Casper is rather fond of Hootch, hopefully that won't have an effect on his brain development, the naughty boy. Randomness and Byrane seem rather sensible though, staying near the incubator. And so musically inclined, too!

Alpha and Sev have decided to take an island vacation with our charming neighbourhood Grendel. Hopefully they'll come for supper soon. Storm and Lucky 13 have all taken firm residence in the garden with the Carrot Beetles, so they definitely have the advantage of food.

The only concern lies in Creek and Serenity, or rather their apparent lack of need to eat. A closer look into the science kit shows seemingly self sustaining glucose and glycogen levels... I'll have to keep an eye on those two.

(And with that, the Shee resumes her scribbling with abandon.)

Most of the Norns have gathered in the lower levels of the island. Alpha, Sev, and Casper are close to death. They appear to be refusing food.

(The Shee turns to you, worried.)

Do we bring them food? Carrots or honey?

Aw, I don't seem to be having much luck in these runs. :P How're Alpha, Sev and Casper doing now? If you're allowed to intervene, maybe some carrots or cheese is in order.

I haven't had it up since the site started glitching, so they're fairly unchanged, but I'll probably run it tomorrow.

Carrots for the doomed then!

Creek not needing food is interesting. I'm guessing these eggs aren't exactly gen 1?

Actually, I'm pretty sure C1 "bred" first gen creatures from genetics files... and also allows first gens to have mutations.

They're all first gens. :) And I think Calliope is right; I've had some interesting mutations in first gens.

Congratulations, Alpha, Serenity, and Byrane, who are all pregnant with the first eggs of the run! Things are looking a bit dire for Alpha though... With only 9% life force remaining, she might not live to lay her egg... Is there any way to get the egg out in the case of death?

Not far behind her are Sev and Casper with 6% and 8%, respectively. Byrane too has been ailing, with 22%... Dear oh dear, things are not looking good here on Albia!
