The many different Deep Norn lifestages

The Deep Norns are a Norn breed developed by Ghosthande for the CCSF 2011. They are a Lovecraftian-inspired Norn breed based on Vampess's CFE genome.

The Deep Norns start out as terrestrial, innocuous-looking babies and gradually metamorphose into fully amphibious elders. They come with their own metaroom, Devil's Reef, and an agent pack containing three agents: cute star-spawn plushies, a basket of muffins, and a copy of the Necronornicon. They occupy Norn Slot W.

Deep Norns are quite unique, as they don't die of old age, and have a slight resistance to heavy metals, although they are not immune to them. Although Deep Norns can eat regular food, the often prefer to eat critters such as fish.

  • A Deep Norn appeared on the CCSF 2008 website wearing a Santa Claus Hat.
  • The Deep Norns are inspired by Lovecraft's Deep Ones in The Shadow Over Innsmouth.
  • When Deep Norns reach the adult stage of life, their eyes will remain open whilst they sleep. This is because like fish they have no eyelids.
