The NORN Collective was a closely-knit loose association of members of the Creatures Community. Initially formed on alt.games.creatures in the period September-November 1997, the collective soon reached every corner of the newsgroup, having a lasting effect even after the official ceasing of assimilations on 1 July 1999.

Ruled by the Imperious Leader, this society took after the Borg Norns in habits, and members were expected to add "of NORN" to their names. Their website, The Official NORN Collective Homepage, was in turn hosted by Anthony and Daljit of NORN.

The NORN Collective was a supporter of the Rights for Norns Society and the NSAWALFNNE.

History of the NORN Collective

The history of the NORN Collective is summarised on their homepage by a very confusing poem.

The initial idea for what would become NORN was conceived in this post on a.g.c on 7 September 1997. Though subject to initial derision (like most proposals on a.g.c.), the idea took hold, and was expanded on in the first epic battle of the NORN, against their nemesis, Katie. Daljit of NORN became Imperious Leader on 7 September 1998, one year afterwards.

One previously secret wing of the Collective, the Norns in Black, came to light in November 1998.

On 29 April 2001, a new logo was created. Perhaps more was planned, but it's not clear what.

Members of NORN

Membership of the NORN Collective was . . . fluid. These lists of the NORN Collective are incomplete, inaccurate, and in places deliberately misleading. Just like all the other ones.

Daljit of NORN checking in here. Anthony of NORN was a high ranking lieutenant in The Collective, but not the specific leader of these particular drones. I believe this may have actually just been his signature for his postings. Absurdly long signatures were in vogue at the a.g.c at the time.
