About

Live Nornish Action is generally unmonitored and attempts to run 24/7; of course, this is hampered as DS is prone to crashing from time to time.

When both the LNA world and the DS Server are up and running, online DS players can send their own norns via the Warp to the DS name LNA (ID 22540+50) to watch them interact with other norns in the world. There is a limit of four creatures per breeder; excess creatures will automatically rebound.

More information can be found on the (LNA Website).

History

LNA first launched on May 27, 2009. It was hosted on Ustream for a while, then later moved to Justin.TV, which eventually moved all game-related streams to Twitch.TV.

In the beginning, LNA was run on a fairly terrible computer and crashed frequently. When the computer finally gave out a few months later, the stream was taken down indefinitely.

On March 7, 2011, LNA was quietly relaunched without announcement. The stream carried on with very little interruption for over two solid months. During this time, Amaikokonut developed and tested several modifications to the game to make it more viewer-friendly, including a status window and nametags for the creatures.

On May 26, 2011, the stream was re-announced to the public with an accompanying website. It continued to run with only occasional downtime through August, with some major downtime periods throughout September, October, and November, mostly due to the warp server being down and Amai's lack of motivation to keep it running. Midway through November, the stream quietly shut down for another extended break.

As of November 10, 2013, the stream is currently offline due to the warp server being down. It is unknown when it will return.
