A Starship I Found

Yes, that really is the name of the world I will be posting about tonight. Some of these events were written as they happened.

First of all, I'd like you to know I use the door hiders on all doors leading to and from the Grendel Jungle. The only creatures I'd dream of allowing in that nasty place would be either immortal or toxic. For that reason, I have a Grendel Home Smell in the Norn Terrarium and the Norn Meso. I also have Ettin Home Smells in those places.

I'd like you to meet the Grendels I am focusing on breeding.

The male is Grendo and the female is Grenda. Instead of regular Grendels, they are Young Grendels from the Universe of Ettins, so Grenda and her female decedents won't get old when they breed. Both came from the egg layer. At the time this picture was taken, they've had three sons and a daughter together. Also, Grenda is the very Grendel on my new avatar.

Here are Butters and Bubba. I mainly keep them around to get my Grendels used to the idea of living peacefully with Norns. Thanks to the Gay Norn patch, I don't have to worry about extra Norns, and they don't have to worry about being without a mate. All three of us are very happy with it.

For some reason, Bubba is homesick. I see no reason why he should be, unless he considers the Norn Meso to be his home or the Bubble Norns are homesick under different circumstances and I forgot.

I wonder if the Hoverdock needs a vacation...

Shortly after abusing the Hoverdock, I heard a kisspop and noticed a pregnancy icon. Grenda has gotten pregnant for the fifth time. I scrambled to take pictures (I used the Updated Creatures History, and I feel the need to have a picture in for as many events as possible.) I do the same for when the egg is laid. Then it hatches (I didn't use the incubator because I wanted decent pictures for the Creature history of the child and it's parents, and it hatched before I got the chance to put it in.)

I export him so I can eventually give him and a few of his siblings an IQ test (I'm trying to breed intelligent Grendels.) 

Grenda and Grendo sure are friendly right now. Just as I am about to talk Grenda into playing with a toy, she and Grendo kisspop and she becomes pregnant. I hope the offspring is female this time.

For some reason, I like being able to take pictures of creatures while they are still in eggs. Speaking of eggs, I put the one pictured into the incubator and...

It's a female! Hooray! Like her siblings, she is exported. Unfortunately, Grendo and Grenda still hit Norns once in a while. Just as I typed that last sentence, Grenda became pregnant again! She laid the egg and I put it in the incubator. Another female that you can probably guess what I did with. I'm not posting a picture of her because I really don't want to go overboard. Actually, the picture above is the last picture for this post unless someone dies.

Another pregnancy for Grenda. I take my usual pictures and drop the egg into the incubator. The baby Grendel comes out and I am pleasantly surprised. I know that I said in the last sentence of the previous paragraph that there wouldn't be anymore images for this post unless someone dies, but I must post this.

I have exported the baby Grendel and look forward to possibly breeding her. I don't know how common pigment mutations are in second generation creatures, but I am happy with it. And Grenda got pregnant again. She laid her egg and a male hatched from it. Well, it's around 12:30 AM where I'm at, so I guess I should end here. I'll keep playing for a little longer tonight, and anything notable that happens will be mentioned in the next post.

  1. Hi, SpringRain here again! Ehehe...

    I thought this was a fine introduction for a first post in a new world. :) Congrats on your new Blog.

    That was a good idea with the smell emitters. I must remember to use that in my worlds. :O

    I just love the sparkly scales on the Grendels in C3/DS! They're so pretty to look at, don't you think? <3 It's nice to see someone raising these guys instead of Norns for a change - but I must admit I am kind of biased towards things that are fluffy. XD

    Maybe you could try taking Bubba to different rooms of the ship and see if he becomes less homesick in a certain area? I've had this problem with creatures as well but I've never really found a sure way to fix it.
