That's all I could possibly think of for now, folks! I had to delve deep into my little flowerd notebook to get most of the answers about Old Norntropolis (btw: My little flowered notebook held all of the vital info I needed that had to do with Norntropolis back then). I'll think of more later on, but for now, this is it!
