Marcus announced a "action wish
list" around Christmas 2004 that got released
on Mummy's Creatures where everyone could wish for
a norn breed. My wish were the
"Konnichiwa" is Japanese
and means "Hello" or "How do you
do?" and those norns say it! And bow to it.
Those Norns come in three different
Sprites: Toxic, Banshee Grendel
These Konnichiwa Norns eat normal food and feel
at home everywhere. But you give them some bamboo
to eat they will feel at home also in the bamboo
forest. They can breathe under water for a short
(but limited!) time. They get older as normal norns
These Konnichiwa Norns like to eat little animals
and they will walk on four legs throughout their
entire life, just like normal tigers do! They feel
at home in the jungle, but give them some bamboo
to eat and they will feel at home in the bamboo
forest as well.
Sprites: Fimbul, Estrella
These Konnichiwa Norns eat normal food, but it's
better to feed them bamboo. It keeps them healthy
and helps in breeding with them. They feel at home
where the bamboo grows.
These Norns can only brought into
your game by means of the agent injector, not with
the egg layer. The agent produces one of those three
versions randomly every time you inject a Konnichiwa
Norn in your world.
Of course! The Konnichiwa Norns need
the bamboo and the seeds come with them. So every
time you inject a Konnichiwa Norns, some bamboo
seeds will also be injected into your world. The
bamboo grows (almost) everywhere.
Please read the ReadMe file that comes
with the agent. The Konnichiwa Norns where released
at Mummy' Creatures
and you can get them from there as well.
Additionally, Marcus made me some
more "Japanese" agents, which go together
with the Konnichiwa Norns very well, I think.
When you install this stone lantern, first another
object appears. It acts kind as a "stone lantern
vendor". Depending on the version, this object
can be a "waving cat" (jap. "Maneki
Neko") for the levelled version or a small,
brownish lantern for the sloping version.
The object is carryable by the hand, but cannot
be seen by creatures. Click on the object to install
a stone lantern at the place, where the object is
standing. This stone lantern isn't carryable any
more but can be seen by your creatures.
You can turn the lamp on and of. Also your creatures
can turn it on and of. When a creature is turning
it on, alcohol, coldness and heat get's reduced
in that creature and it learns the vocabulary. All
creatures nearby will get awake (since the light
is turned on!). By turning it off, the creature
will get a bit sleepier.
Creatures can destroy the lamp if they are angry
enough to do so and hit the lamp hard enough. You
can repair the lamp by searching all pieces and
piling them up. As long as a lamp is destroyed,
it cannot be seen by creatures. Or easier, you just
produce a new stone lamp. ;-)
btw: the original of this lamp stands in the Konraku-En
(a landscape garden) in Kanazawa / Japan.;-)
When installed, this Torii comes in two. Put them
up at different places in your world and click on
them. It will open kind of a "window"
where you can see the picture where the other Torii
is currently standing. It's acting like a remote
camera. Creatures can activate the Torii as well.
Then it works as a teleporter for them. Also if
you activate an opened Torii with the hand and any
creature is nerby, it will be teleported to the
other Torii in your world.
Makes your Norns drunk! So please, be carful, how
much you give to your creatures! The bottle holds
three sips of alcohol. If empty, click on the bottle
to refill it.
A Koi Toy! And with very special features:
put it in water and it will grow, take it out of
the water and it will shrink. Norns that fell in
water and meet the Koi will be made amphibious by
the Koi and won't suffocate. If the Koi reaches
a certain size and gets pushed by norns it will
dispense seeds. If pushed by the hand it will change
In addition to the action "wish list",
Tafgana choose one of the ideas for a new norn breed
and made a norn doll for it. And she chose the Konnichiwa
Norns by chance, without knowing who's wish it was.
Lucky me, huh?
So may I present
