I finally added a Website History page, showing links to old archives of this site and former ones

finally updated the Temple

It now uses the new Slot 5 Micro Grendels I made today, to make them compatible with the new Frost Grendels.

was, I added a few more rooms from the Cob Vault too.
4th January 2022
started a Wolfling run on my fiancÚ's laptop using Midgard norns and
various cobs I love.
As it's an old machine, some old utilities work better, although it is pretty slow!
3rd January 2022
finally have some time after the holidays to update a little, I
expanded the Formosa page to describe the Feliz genome.
I also bred some more norns, many with Feliz genomes, and some Dawnites.
30th December 2021
so my contract ended, and Christmas and Yule are past, so perhaps I'll
find time to catch up on the CCSF!

joints are still playing havoc, but I've found time to update some
pages, and add some I've been working on over the past months.
It's not all as grandiose as I'd hoped, but I've found time to work on it where I could.
I must leave the house to attend our ducks and chickens, so no more details.
Please click on the egg on the main page (or here) to find most of them, some are "hidden" around this mahoosive website :)
I hope you have a happy 25th Anniversary Creatures fans!
6th December 2021
is late and I've just done some editing of Stories and fixing MANY
broken picture links on my site, and writing up some data all ready for
the CCSF that has just started, lol. I guess knackering my ankle has
forced me to free up some time for Creatures related stuff!
I promise to release some new stuff (mostly pages) soon.
4th December 2021
busy with work and allotment, but I did a little breeding. My female
clone of Atono, Onota turns out to age and become fertile!
She had a kid by my Feliz norn born of a surrogate grendel called Felix. I called the child Special :-)
1st December 2021
It's pretty late here, but I'm uploading all my recent updates ready for the CCSF.
29th November 2021
It's been pretty cold, windy and snowing IRL, and we finally had a couple of days off.
I bred a few new generations, and edited some cobs and pages for release during the CCSF.
26th November 2021
been very busy in our new jobs, but I've played a little of Creatures,
mostly via wolfling runs.
I've uploaded the latest generations and discovered that a Survivor gene I've dubbed the Horny-Lonely mutation has become endemic in my population.
23rd November 2021
I added some utilities and rearranged by patches and updates somewhat
to make dirt make more sense.
I have been playing quite a bit lately, to remind me why I maintain this website!
I start a new job soon, so probably not too many updates, but I'll see what I can do.
Last thing I did today was create the Rainbow Shee!
22nd November 2021
finally rooted out the cause of the Starch Synthesis mutation endemic
to my Main Population.
I exhaustively checked many norns and found it's origin in Kali, and exported all norns with it.
21st November 2021
added a bunch of artwork both official and by Steve Dismukes to
section, to the People page,
and worked some more on Yggdrasil.
19th November 2021
Today I began working on Yggdrasil in earnest
19th November 2021
I spent some goodly time rearranging the Rooms, splitting them into several
I also started a diagram. to help understand the complexities of their interactions.
I got carried away with the diagram, it became many, and now I have a page full of them!
also tracked down the Starch Synthesizing mutation to Kali, and made
some headway towards making the tree,
which is around 24 generations because I forgot about it TWICE!
Atono was probably the first norn I noticed with it..
Luckily I could breed it out of the population as norns were just learning to rest rather than eat to survive.
18th November 2021
did a bit of reshuffling on the website, relocated some pages and such.
I finally updated the Utilities page and spruced up several others as well.
I also did a bit of Story editing, for my sins, sheesh!
17th November 2021
fixed an error in my Main
Sequence where I mistakenly scribed some norns to the wrong
norn as I got her moniker wrong.
It's great to be back in my main population again.
I deleted my Guestbook as it became infested with Spambots.
Apparently Chrome now shows some of my pictures as negative images, I've no idea why.
finally found open source software that can open Mac .sit files and I
have a Polar Norn!
Welcome Brad to the PC!
In doing so I found out that Mac norns can open on the PC version of Creatures :-)
16th November 2021
work in earnest to repair Zeruko for re-release.
I also updated the C12DS page.
15th November 2021
I've been updating like crazy, trying to finish my website for CCSF2021.
This morning I finally updated my Consumables, Releases and Cob Ideas pages.
financial crisis in our lives, plus lots to do on the allotment mean
I'm doing what I can when I have time.
Watch this space!
evening I finally updated the Cob Vault and Cob Class
pages with a few cobs
I added a few historically significant advances to AI, AL and genetics in the 1990s section below.
I brushed up the Breeding Scripts CAOS example page (a chore!)
I edited the behaviour page to change "norn" to "creature." Somehow it missed the earlier edit.
I also squeezed in a bit of SPG checking and link fixing.
14th November 2021
I finally created my Relatedness page, showing the results of analysis of the official creature breeds.

between fixing up sheds on the allotment I've been working hard on my
which I've decided NOT to mention on here in case I accidentally upload this file.
mention is that in trawling old websites, I managed to find the page
where the Highlander
norns have been hiding!
I also dug up their tree:
* marks immortal norns
3rd April 2021
I've been nominated to be a coordinator for this year's CCSF.
I was surprised, flattered and then quickly I started thinking of the work involved, then I realised if I am to do it,
I should gather a team to delegate to and share ideas with.
This I can do.
Also I updated my cob and breed ideas pages, without giving too much away.
29th March 2021
I added a little more information and images to the mythology section.

These pages still need work

At some point I'll go back through and add icons for sex & origin, and add some more trees and other data

I have been linking my main sequence norns to the website, I have finally finished Cohort 2 and begun 3.
Recently I did some behind-the-scenes stuff to make it easier to navigate my folders, so if any broken links turn up let me know.
12th March 2021
so it's been a great few days to be on the allotment, but I finally got
around to adding
Wingies to my site, they are awesome mods of the original breeds with wings
They have inspired me to continue work on my heavenly cloud rooms.
I also added some more norns to the GM & Undead pages
11th March 2021
found a german creatures website called Nornywood with many links for
old sites from around the world.
I had a lot of fun adding these links to my pages, and had to split the links pages yet again to make room!
I am also trying to add more icons to the Icons cob
10th March 2021
work on Project Arcadia has borne fruit in terms of several cob updates,
and a new cob I call Icons, which is basically a user interface.
9th March 2021
continued work on the Snow Foxes, and took a break to create
a conversion of Ron norns called Geat Rons.
to there being a saturation of norn breeds in C1, and there being
shee/geat slots free,
I have decided to put both Ron and Snow Foxes there.
8th March 2021
I took a break from my other projects to update my Temple Cave cob.
now includes a new Macro Gregoid with Micro grendels,
and Purple Mountain Hooch by Malkin

finally finished my conversion of the Micro
Grendels for C2

6th March 2021
I continued work on version 2 of the Blond norns.
also fixed The Undercanopy cob, it was causing the jukebox to vanish.
It was caused by scripts from the Cave Flies cob, which I've now removed.
5th March 2021
spending a few days editing stories, I decided to create the Feliz norns,
designed to be happier and more robust than the average norn.
They are based on Formosa norns so have all their Life kit genes too.

20th February 2021
have been uploading cobs I've found and I stumbled across the second
version of the Injector Kit,
I'm very enthused.
This will make testing the rest of the cobs much easier :)

Continued working on uploading my main norn family, I'm up to generation 29.
17th February 2021
More uploading of norns.

ancient greek paradise, with a statues and lots of nature.
22rd May 2020
taking a break from editing and uploading my main tree of norns, and
all their pictures.
So I took a break from editing a volume of text that almost DOUBLES the page count of my website
to upload just shy of TWO THOUSAND files, lol.
20th May 2020
I'm still editing / reading and uploading stories, along with a few poems and suchlike.

a horse norn head, PMN limbs and banana body. She also has light colouring.
In a later version I'll add silver hair to all life stages.
14th June 2018
created some Bacchus
norns as I had none and knew exactly what the mutation is.
The new norns are named for Spanish words for beauty:
Guapo - handsome
Gentil - comely
Hermoso - beautiful
I packaged them with cobs to make more Bacchus norns and test for Bacchus genes.
13th June 2018
spending days working on cobs that are STILL faulty, I took a break to
create the Purple Forest Ron Santas,
or PFRS norns. They have all the genes added by the Purple Mountain, Forest, Ron and Santa 1997 breeds.
Their appearance is a random mix of these breeds, I added a cob to make extra eggs of the same kind.
They should work well with Santra the Female Golden Santa.
I also added a few documents and many images to the Norn, Information and Downloads sections.

2 into the Anteaters,
a new shee breed for Creatures!

Nornica is installed.
the process of breeding Daybreak norns with Wacko norns.
So far there is one lame norn, and one stillbirth caused by what I'm referring to as the Reverse-Highlander mutation,
and what might be a genetic form of ME.

Its bananas are a bit of an aphrodisiac.
I also added icons for cobs
29th May 2018
27th May 2018
as a break from adding stuff to my site, I've been working on a new cob,
The Tribble Trouble cob. This screenshot says it all:
Not long after this screenshot, Creatures crashed because it couldn't add more objects, but they wouldn't...stop...breeding.
There's still a few bugs to iron out, but version 1 is out now..
25th May 2018
4th until 23rd May 2018
undertook the arduous task of checking the grammar, spelling and
punctuation, and fixing the apparently many broken links.
These broken links hark back to when I renamed all my .htm files from "creatures" with affixed numbers and letters to more usefully descriptive ones.
It was well worth the effort to make this site readable and functional!
I also updated the Links page again and spent a long time finding archives for the down sites.
Little creatures-related activity on my part.
23rd November 2016
On this day I ran a wolfling run for three days.in Zeruko.
I used Choices, Desert, Dracula, Grelloran, Hippy, Plant, Starlite and Survivor norn breeds.

Boring work, but it sorely needed doing.

Added quotes and a couple of images to the What is Creatures? page.
Also removed a page relating to non C1 grendels, as t has no place on my C1 only website.
19th August 2011
the vast majority of the webpage file
names. Makes for easier surfing and makes it easier for me to edit.
More interestingly I created images of four family trees I have previously created for my own purposes, and placed them on the relevant pages as well as the links below:
1) The Hungry Ghost Project
2) The Dawnites
3) Cardinal Mountain Norns
