To start off, it was time to introduce our next Norn. This time, Logic would be our new baby. He’s remembered (at least by me) for “Logic love door”. He never said it himself, but the joke’s still funny to me.
By now, we had 46 eggs and more were on the way. Thankfully, a lot of the norns were at rest when I made my rounds this time. They still tended to stay in groups around the Norn Meso, but this lack of adventurousness meant that the Norns were at least safe.
Napping so often also meant that they were more interested in resting in groups than in venturing out to the volcano, for example. Others simply wandered from group to group – if there was a Norn around that no one particularly liked, they’d simply leave. This was much more civil than slapping but I figured it was in younger norns’ better interest to just leave rather than try to out-slap a bigger, stronger norn.
I have to say, observing group behavior might have been just as fascinating as getting to know each norn and I was glad I had the opportunity to play around with such a large, diverse group.
Beside avoiding certain norns, I was starting to notice that certain norns also had favorite areas of the world. Because more norns favored the Meso over the Norn Terrarium, I speculated that many were willing to put up with norns they didn’t like in favor of abundant food while others found the solitary environment in the Norn Terrarium more desirable. Synergy is one example that jumps out at me.
As for individual behaviors, I started to think that some norns preferred to rest in one spot rather than explore because I fed each norn when I made my rounds. Granted, I did this by simply showering them with food, but it was still interesting to see norns not moving for a while despite a lack of food.
Before I could spend any more time considering all this, I had to add another baby. With the addition of BLAH here, there were 10 babies left in queue. In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve tried to stick to a 2 baby per entry limit here, so that means at least 5 more entries of introducing babies. Oh boy.
At least things were progressing on the pregnancy and baby front and soon, I’d have lots more to talk about than introducing new faces.
