Hi guys! Today I'm doing something a bit different than the usual tracking of norn lives. I've done a bit of a test run of a metaroom made by Pilla. You might be familiar with the other metaroom she's made, the Other Lone Shee's Ark. I love the OLSA, and I know many others in the CC enjoy it as well. The Betaship is quite similar to the OLSA- it has several different rooms for norns to live in and is very spacious. In fact, the Betaship is extremely big, and has plenty of room for both land-dwelling creatures and aquatic ones! It's about as big as the Biodome, give or take, and comes stocked with food and toys, as well as plants and critters. This is great if you want a big metaroom but don't want to have to set it up with the garden box or other agents.
I've been running various land-based norns in the dry areas, and Colourtrue Pearl Mermaids in the aquatic sections. The water area surrounds the land areas, meaning the mermaids can look in on the land-dwellers, creating a connection of sorts between the two worlds. Personally, I love the idea of an aquatic norn befriending a land norn through the glass. There's even a smaller area, separate from the main aquatic zone, where amphibious creatures can venture between the water and the land. Unfortunately, as the areas are connected by elevators, this means that purely land-based norns can take the elevator down into the water and drown there because they couldn't figure out that they could just go back up. I saw a gargoyle boy down there and panicked before I remembered they're amphibious!
