Norn Poses

For those of us who don't have NornPose or a similar program, there are three methods of capturing an image of a Norn in a desired pose.

First, you can piece together the sprites for a Norn's body parts, one by one. This does allow a greater range of poses than a Norn can actually take in-game, but it is also pretty tedious.

Second, you can wait for a real Norn to take the pose you want, and then take a photograph or screen capture when they do. This can also be tedious, as you have little control over your subject.

Third, you can use the ZOMB, DIRN and POSE commands to temporarily force a Norn to take the exact pose you want; first by using ZOMB to stop the Norn's movements, then using DIRN to make them face the correct direction, and POSE to set their pose. This is by far the easiest method, except that there are many poses (~160) and trying to find the one you want can be even more tedious than either of the other methods.

That is what the Norn pose index is for. The index is a graphical guide to all the poses found in the standard Norn genome. It can be used as a reference to pose your own Creatures for graphics, banners, animations, or for any other project you can think of.









































Note: No Norns were harmed in the making of this index. In fact Cowpatch was quite happy to participate, as you can see from his bright grin!
