Apple Norns Released

Hi all!

I've got an exciting announcement to make... after many years languishing on Moe's harddrive, we dusted off a norn breed hitherto unreleased to the CC! With help from Grendel Man, geneticist extraordinaire, we have a fantastic new breed for you to play with.

Pulled from Moe's archives, these Apple Norns, originally meant to be released with the Canopy, are finally seeing the light of day. You can trace the Apple Norns' ancestry back to the Treehugger norns, though these Norns are very social and love to eat fruit. Their fur is waxy and smooth, making them prefer moist environments. They are at one with nature, and will chase clouds or any kind of weather when homesick. They have a strong immune system; boasting a resistance to ATP Decoupler and Cyanide, which is found in trace amounts inside of apple seeds. They tend to be great navigators and bear eggs with considerable ease.

They occupy Norn Slot Y.

  1. Wwwweeeeee!! How exciting :D I will be testing them out very shortly.

  2. So far working out quite well. They're really good eaters and seem obsessed with the Albian Carrot beetles from C1 :D

  3. Awesome :D I've been playing with them in the Canopy, and by god they eat. They almost killed off my Boomba population!

  4. Well, if they eat so much, you might try to raise them in Gardenia! Where food is abondant :)

    I will test these norns as soon as I have some more time :)

  5. This is such a wonderful, high-quality breed- this is such a fantastic addition to the game! Thank you for posting this!

  6. What a beautiful breed! It's refreshing to have such a nice-looking new breed added to my world--feels like the old days! Thank you so much for all of your hard work.

  7. These Norns look amazing, and it sounds like they have so many different aspects to them! I'll definitely be introducing them to my world when I start up C3/DS. Thanks so much to everyone who was involved in the project! Fantastic work!

  8. Whoever did the .atts should recheck them. I've found that the female's head becomes a little detached while she's in her final stages of pregnancy.
