Creatures Wiki

Fast-aging Norns, Ettins, or Grendels simply age faster than normal, caused by a common mutation in the C3/DS creatures genome.

Most players dislike fast-agers, as these creatures are called, as in addition to their shortened lifespan, they tend to kiss-pop a lot. However, for this very reason, breed developers will often test their genomes by temporarily making them fast agers to check for other defects before changing the aging gene back to normal for release.

If you have a tribe of unwanted fast-agers, you may wish to download the Norn of Infertility agent, which regularly injects the fast-ager and immortal norns with fertility decreasing chemicals. The Fast Ager Trap agent simply exports and labels norns that have aged too quickly.

Fast-aging is not to be confused with force-aging.
