When you have enough gold to buya house, go to an architect and buy a house deed. Read it and it will tell you what to do. It will tell you to find the location where you want the house to be, register the coordinates and then mail us. We will then place the house for you. You will recive a mail back saying this: Congratulations ! WHEREABOUT You just got yourself a house in Era Online ! The house has been put where you wanted it at map --, X --, Y --. The house deed has been removed from your inventory as well. Enjoy your new house ! HOUSE SECURITY You have now one lock to spend. This lock is not in your inventory. To lock your house, stand in the door, and type /LOCK. No one else than yourself may walk trough the door now. To unlock the door, stand in the door and type /UNLOCK. Anyone may now walk trough the door. There is no physical key in your inventory. For now, other players is not able to lockpick your door, so you are totally safe for now. HOW LONG DO YOU OWN THE HOUSE ? Forever ! The house will stay there forever. Note however, that if your character that bought the house is erased for various reasons, the house may be erased too. However, we do not have time limits like in Ultima Online, so you can be away from your house as long as you want. DUPLICATING KEYS This is not possible in Era Online. If you want others to be able to access your house, you will either have to keep it unlocked, or you will have to unlock it for them. DECORATION & STORAGE OF GOODS Here is where you will find total freedom ! You can either buy furniture at a wood worker, or you can make your own. Just place the furniture in your house as any other normal object. Furniture can be picked up again, so be careful who you let into your house ! You can also store objects in your house by placing them anywhere you want inside your house. The objects will stay there until someone pick them up again. SIGNS You can buy signs at a wood worker. When you drop a sign, you cannot pick it up again, so be sure where you want the sign to be, before dropping it. Once dropped, click on it to change its text. The sign will stay there forever, and everyone who click on the sign will see what you typed. This is great for guild signs, and signs outside your home etc. Feel free to buy more houses if you can afford it ! Start your own city if you want to ! Everything is possible in Era Online ! Enjoy ! Friendly, Era Online Development Team Houses are very expensive. This is unfortunate but we have to make them expensive. We cannot have 10 000 player houses fill the world. The smallest house you can buy, is about 100 000 gold. We really want to make houses, something everyone can own. This may be possible in the future. This would make players more bound to the world, they will get a better feeling of being a part of the world. We will lower the house prices by time, so everyone can achive a house.
