Are you afraid that you've become addicted to Creatures games? Afraid that you've been sucked into the world of Norns as though you've been sucked into a black hole? Now you can warn people about the Norn addiction symptoms! If you want to post a symptom of Norn addiction for any of the Creatures games, then go ahead. Here's the first one:

You call your little sibling an Ettin whenever he or she steals your stuff.

You pretend to be a Treehugger Norn when writing for an advice column on a popular Creatures website. ;)

not being able to type the word 'creature' without adding an s in the end.

I don't do that much anymore, but it used to be a habit big time in my JRC days


Yes, I'm the forum [devil]... Any questions?

Rascii: You make my life difficult, angel.

Happens to me, too.

You genetically engineer your little sibling so that he'll or she'll grow up and play with you (happened to me...).

((You should see my school books. The back page of each one usually has a large norn on it, along with a norn rendition of Pete Wentz and a dragon))

Writing Creatures fanfics all the time.
That's definately one. *looks at Bonnieshee*

If you like fanfics, Draconorn, try reading "Henry the Chichi's Noble Quest" in the Writings Forum. :).

You think that "Nornish" should be an official language ;).

Whenever you hear a reference to creatures that has nothing to do with creatures (IE, ettin, the two headed mytho beast) you jump up and down in joy!

Do not upset the ugly worm, lest it be a dragon in disguise. (>oo)>

similar: not being able to read Beowulf without daydreaming about grendels :P

Life is like a bowl of Ettins

That's why I don't read Beowulf either ;).

You faint when your biology teacher says that babies aren't made by a huge kiss-pop. ((I seriously did that... it took me a while to become concious after the shock :P)).

You end up wondering at the stupidity of the Sims 2 developers compared to the creatures developers.

*Yawn*...Me bored... OOPS :$.

You make a game where you and your friends roll play as your Norns in a 3D, interactive Shee Starship/Albia (I wish!).

When you were in primary school you pretended to be a norn with your best friend.
Yes, I did that! You can laugh if you want.

You try to build a teleporter to zap you into the Shee Starship (guilty).

You mix up Furbish with Bibble. I once told one of my furbs 'Eem dat'! And then I kept mixing up my Tamagotchi's beeps with the thing that tells you you got a message in DS... I'm insane.

I know you're insane, EvilSpirit (or WolfSpirit) :P.

You often wish to be a Norn... I often pretend to be one: I try to eat similar foods as they do, talk like they do, play similar toys, and generally find out what it's like.

I pretend I'm a werewolf alot. It's fun.

Your grendels now jump in the phiranah pool themselves because they're tired of you doing it for them.

Yes, all of these things apply to me. :P

1. You think shoving a Norn in the injection machine and doing random experiments makes for a fun Saturday night.

2. You set up an entire network of cameras, Grendel detectors, and alarms connecting the Grendel and Norn terrariums to protect your Norns. You do routine check-ups, tests, and repairs.

3. You strive to keep the Norn terrarium/Meso neat, clean, and organized.

4. You talk out loud to the computer screen, addressing your Norns (I.E. "Now Anna, you know better than to hit that little Hardman Norn." ).

5. You get excited about decorating the Norn terrarium/Meso for Christmas.

6. In C1, you tweak the Encyclopedia Nornica COB to make your Norns sound smarter (you put in "cogitate" instead of "think" ).

7. When you order a Creatures game in the mail, you hype yourself up for days by studying Norn care guides, looking at screenshots, making up makeshift tests, and bookmarking sites.

8. You tweak Norn genetics and breed generations of Norns until you get one that's your favorite color, and then you treat it like royalty.

9. You've actually asked your mother for a female Horse Norn-shaped birthday cake.

10. Your parents know exactly what you're talking about when you mention something about a floating lemon.

11. You become slightly obsessed with certain items and rooms in the games (the C1 koo-koo clock, the C2 Ettin swamp area, ECT.).

12. You've sat down and explained Norn genetics and biochemistry to your elderly grandparents.

13. You've actually downloaded the crockpot COB for C2, and spent hours steaming doozers, fish, and anything else you can get your hands on.

14. You have ideas for tacky home decor COBs (lamps, doilies, decorative vases, ECT.).

15. When your history teacher announces you're beginning a unit in Greek Mythology, you secretly get excited and take out a pen and paper to write down the names of the gods, so you can use them as Norn names later on.

16. You've memorized "Len the Pen", and/or had a framed copy of it on your dresser.

17. It's three AM, and you know where your Norns are.

19. You think the C3 fish terrarium is a thing of terrible beauty.

20. Your mean little cousins taunt you by threatening to sneak onto your PC and kill all your Norns.

21. At one point, you've actually had a small frame sitting on a doily on a table with a picture of a random Norn in it.

22. You've actually said "Creatures: My Anti-drug."

23. You love the idea of downloading a Norn that speaks German, but you get frustrated when all of your other Norns start speaking half-German and half-English, and you have to teach them all over again.

24. You taught your DS Norns curse words once, accidentally sent them to someone via the warp, and still regret it.

25. When someone says something about the Christmas of '02, you remember that as being "the Christmas some schmo sent thirty very friendly Norns through the warp and it took five hours to get rid of them and their eggs."

26. You have actually customized the DS hand color to match the tanness/paleness of your skin.

27. You've had a Norn named Danny Boy, and in the description, you typed "The pipes, the pipes, are calling."

28. You've nicknamed the Grendel terrarium "the Ghetto".

29. You somehow incorporate Creatures into your daily To-Do list
(I.E. Number One - Mop kitchen floor
Number Two - Take out trash
Number Three - Download shelf COB; inject.)

30. The first time you saw the Toby Simpson C2 easter egg, you screamed.


"Through the darkness of future past,
The magician longs to see
One chance out between two worlds:
Fire, walk with me."

Wow... that's a lot of Symptoms, ColonelJ.

1. You've forfeited a movie with your friends because your favorite Norn laid an egg and it was about to hatch... guilty :P.

2. You name your favorite Norns after Gods... Zues was my first DS Norn with a color tint (Gold!).

3. You train your Norns to fend themselves against the Grendels (guitly!) and give them extra love and care if they actually slay one!

Here's some more:

31. You've had to put a Norn in a makeshift "rehab" to wean them off of the crack pipe or bong COBs.

32. You have a playlist on your PC of music you listen to only while playing Creatures.

33. You've used Helen's spade COB, and acutally have a small garden in C2.

34. You've downloaded every sigle one of SteerPike's COBs, and put them to endless uses.

35. You know exactly what a "Test Tube Norn" is.

36. You've bred Treehuggers with Hardmans just for the heck of it.

37. You've actually used the Creatures IQ Test to weed out stupid Norns

38. You love Creature Fights, and have held many, especially in the good ol' Dog Days of summer.

39. The neon fish and the rainbow sharklings are your "fisheh babehs."

40. You've had to explain to your mother the difference between a blackberry cobbler, and a COBler.

41. You have actually fashioned an anti-Grendel army from about a dozen genetically-altered Hardman Norns.


"Through the darkness of future past,
The magician longs to see
One chance out between two worlds:
Fire, walk with me."

Whenever a Norn dies, you hold an Online funeral and you actually say the words to let your Norn's soul go to the Heavens peacefully.

Whenever one of your creatures dies, you drag every living relative to the graveyard for a funeral. You also have the body on display, frozen with ?Dahker's? norn freezer.

Whenever one of your norns dies, you exterminate the grendel responsible. Painfully.

For the future, can you users submit only one symptom. Otherwise some of the others would run out of ideas.

You literally have a collection of Norn and/or Grendel and/or Ettin plush, most of which are homemade. O.O Guilty!

You're very picky about the norn breeds you download, choosing ones that look very different to the normal ones that come with the games.
eg. Draconian norns, Gargoyle norns, Mernorns
