Narfell Housing



  • This is a comprehensive post on player / guild housing costs for all areas. It supersedes older housing cost posts. Note that some areas may not have available space for housing, and DM approval is required (eventually, DM approval will only be required for new construction as purchases / rentals of existing housing will be automated).

    Note that the below costs include ongoing costs (rent/taxes/upkeep). There will be an automated system going in to deal with ongoing costs, however, until that system goes in, ongoing costs will be waived. For rental properties, DMs will take a lump sum payment up front until the automated system goes in.

    All housing purchases or rentals require the PC's player be a C-Token Holder.

    Existing housing may be purchased (possibly at a discount) or new housing may be constructed. New housing allows the player to define the layout (with DM/dev approval), but will take time to construct.

    Guild/Org Properties are subject to the same rules as PC properties in terms of ongoing costs.

    Property Types
    There are three types of property a PC may have:

    Rented Property - Up to 2 PS may be added at the costs below, but other placeables may not. Lowest up-front cost, but rents are high (charged RL monthly)

    Owned Property in a town - PC can add placeables/PS. High up front cost, but taxes are lower than rents (charged RL monthly)

    Owned Property outside a town's jurisdiction - PC can add placeables/PS. Highest up front cost, upkeep is also highest (charged RL monthly)

    Existing Housing Base Costs

    Ongoing Costs
    Ongoing Costs Will be charged IG yearly (effectively RL Monthly). These costs will not be charged until there is an automated system to handle it.
    Ongoing costs fall into three categories:

    Rent: 1% of property cost or 100 gold, whichever is higher - charged to people renting properties in a town.

    Taxes: 0.5% of property cost - charged to property owners within a town's jurisdiction

    Upkeep: 1.5% of property cost or 150 gold, whichever is higher - charged to property owners outside a town. This is money paid to get rid of vermin, fend off critters, and otherwise generally maintain the property.

    Custom Housing
    Custom housing will require approval by the DM team for location and content. Subject to DM approval, players can make requests regarding which (external) building model is used for new construction, within space and tileset limitations. External placeables will generally not be allowed or will be extremely limited, as most of the town maps are already placeable heavy.

    Base Cost Per (interior) Square: 750 Gold
    Each PS: 1000 Gold
    Placeables

    • Each Static Placeable: 200 Gold
    • Each Useable Placeable (has a description but no script or conversation): 300 Gold
    • Each Interactive Placeable (has a conversation or existing Narfell script): 400 Gold

    Note that the cost for scripted placeables is for those using existing Narfell scripts. Scripted placeables that require new scripts will most likely not be allowed at all, and will be expensive if they are.

    Per (internal) Square Modifiers
    These modifiers add to the per square price for new construction done in these areas.

    *Note: Norwick South Valley is a commercial part of town for shops, government, and guild buildings. No player housing will be approved in the South Valley.

    Racial Construction Modifiers
    These modifiers apply only if the PC hires an NPC workforce of the appropriate race to do custom construction. Such hiring must be done ICly and arranged with a DM.

    Dwarven Construction (applies to underground and above ground stone): +50% Base Price, -20% Upkeep if outside a city

    Elven Construction (applies to wilderness and above ground wood): +50% Base Price, -20% Upkeep if outside a city

    Orc/Half-Orc/Goblin Construction (applies to underground and wilderness): -25% Base Price, -10% Upkeep if outside a city

    Hinnish Construction (applies to underground turf house and wilderness): -25% Base Price, +15% Taxes/Upkeep

    Gnome Construction (applies to underground only): -20% Base Price

    These prices do not include costs or expenses incurred in getting permission, realtor fees, protection rackets, extortion, graft, eviction or legal fees, or contractor expenses.

    Once ongoing costs go in, they may be paid one IG year (RL Month) in advance. Missing one payment will incur a 50% late fee. Missing two payments will result in a lockout. Missing three payments will result in the property being seized and sold (or taken over by spawns), and the contents stolen or auctioned off by the local government.
