Description

You're trying to successfully breed a population of Norns. Norns are creatures that were created a thousand years ago by an advanced race called the Shee. Norns live for around seven hours, and have their own bloodstream, brains, and even a genetic structure called Creatures Digital DNA.

With your help the Norns can thrive. You can protect them, teach them, breed them and even construct vast automated machines that help you in your quest.
