Little is known of the history of one particular norn who goes by the name of Gorm Of Cragstead! So i thought i would share a little bit of his background with everyone.

The norn have always been a nomadic people focused on hunting and individual goals and pursuits. For a brief while the norn were united as a race in the years after they assisted with the downfall of the the Great Destroyer, but it did not take them long to revert to a nomadic, individualistic lifestyle.

Back in In 1165 AE, Jormag awoke in the Shiverpeaks, raising and transforming creatures of ice and snow to serve him. Tackling Jormag as individuals did not allow the norn to hold their homes and they were forced to travel south into the mountains abandoned by the dwarves. Here they established new homes, found new hunting grounds and made new enemies.

In 1189 AE, Gorm Of Cragstead was born into the small village north east of Hoelbrak called "Cragstead" Gorm was a brave little boy from the get go with huge ambition and strength! From this day forward Gorm knew he was granted with the the great spirit of the bear. Although he was born in Cragstead, which was more towards the spirit of the wolf, Gorm's father Bjorsan was born and raised south in the village of Borealis Forest. Gorm always wanted to follow the footsteps of his father. His parents knew one day that he would have to leave for Hoelbrak and become a great warrior to protect his own people and to serve the the great spirit of the bear. This day came and Gorm was put through some intense training across the lands of the Shiverpeaks where he trained and fought in some of the coldest temperatures to be know across Tyria! All we know to this very day is that Gorm is still currently roaming the lands of Frostgorge Sounds! and hopes to rerutn to his beloved family one day.

Hope you enjoy the pics i have taken, it's not my best but i had fun doing it ;)

What a great Norn-ly norn. Nice concept to go with the hammer. I love the golden hair as well. Gold from me.
I will say that most of your screens are from the waist up. You should utilize your camera options more: Filed of View, Vertical Position Near, etc

I am usually not a fan of male Norn, but I always like being surprised!
It was smart arranging the look around this hammer, the dyes look extremely good!
I would personally mix the armour a little more, maybe one or two more pieces of cultural/Koda armour? Would lif the heavy Carapace feel a little ^^
For the first upload your presentation is extremely well done! I agree that you could still improve a little with the camera positions, but that is only tiny nitpicking!
Really well done and gold ^^

your main screen is pretty dope. the rest could indeed have some more effort. like angles,positioning, timing
the dyes are pretty new to me since i always see silver or white and stuff like that. so props for that. you've earned another gold

Nice norn style and very fitting for a guard!
I especially like the torso-comb and the dyes you chose for this outfit!
Also the hammer goes very well with this look!
The screens are quite nice! I love the locations you chose.
Next time you should just pay attention to get his full body into the screen :P
The camera sliders in the settings are very useful for that!

The legpiece or boots couldve been different than carapace, but overall its a very nice outfit and i appreciate your work with the presentation! Gold from me :)
