Happy Birthday to me?
I took out the force fields since everyone was now an adult. Hopefully, this would encourage them to explore more! After I removed the force fields, there seemed to be a long period of silence. No pregnancies and no illnesses, anyway. I started to think that the force fields had carried disease on them. I disinfected one and set it in the medical bay to keep anyone from carrying out my tools.
It wasn’t very long before Belle and Chase both broke the silence by becoming ill. Once they were cured, I set them in the hallway. Cheddar had followed us out but once he saw Chase was fine, he headed back into the jungle.
I started to suspect there was something wrong with Chase, though I couldn’t be sure what. He was disobedient, and did things that just didn’t make sense to me. I wished that GeneCompare worked on my computer but I would probably have to check his genes later.
In the meantime, I checked on the other norns.
I caught Theo trying to “eat elevator” but a quick slap got him to join the others in eating and kiss-popping. Still no babies from Sylvia. Given the silence, I decided to check her fertility.
Her Arousal potential soared and fell and her oestrogen seemed to behave normally. Until timber came by. Her oestrogen rose and peaked again. I tried again, allowing her oestrogen to drop, but reintroducing Timber did nothing, just a coincidence. I put Tiara into the chamber this time, hoping to find an answer. Her cycle behaved the same way.
Eventually, I gave up trying to be scientific and just threw her into the Norn Meso with Cheddar and encouraged them to push norn. Every time her oestrogen was on the decline, I hoped for the best and sicked them on each other. It started to seem more and more like it just wasn’t meant to be.
I tried the same with Theo and Geoff but no amount of kiss-popping produced a baby. By now, it seemed like she was out of the ‘eggs race’.
I returned to Theo to find him starving himself near the bottom layer elevator. He kept saying “eat elevator” when I asked what he was doing. I grabbed his hand and sent him up the lift to get food and he snapped out of it.
I was also starting to notice old creatures in the game. Geoff, Chase and Hannah were all Old now and all three seemed less interested in kissing.
