What are some Freehold / housing features you’d like to see?

What are some Freehold / housing features you’d like to see?

Feel free to expand on things mentioned by Intrepid already. We don't have many details on the features anyway, so you can take these features in any direction you want.

If you haven't had a chance to read the Wikis or watch all the Q&As, Diura has a compilation thread. You can find it here:

And, here's a thread that focuses entirely on the idea of moving houses (though this wouldn't necessarily link to the Freehold system):

Cheers!

    I’ll get the ball rolling.

    Intrepid has mentioned that NPCs will be available for hire. I expect to be able to hire an Orc bouncer / guard to patrol my Freehold for me. He’ll deal with the troublemakers who get too rowdy, drink too much, start brawls, etc.  – so basically, dwarves.

    This'll be my Orc bouncer:

    One more thing:

    It’d be nice to have a magical jukebox (or equivalent item) that you can plonk down in one of the rooms in a house, inn, or tavern on your Freehold. This item would let you play your favorite tracks from Ashes’s OST as you unlock them (after hearing them at least once during gameplay). You’ll be able to set a lineup of songs to play within your Freehold, so random visitors to your Freehold will be welcomed by the music that you’ve selected, regardless of whether you’re around.

    Example of some music we might listen to while chilling at our Freehold: https://youtu.be/-VJkllNESnM (Kaelar and Empyrean Freeholds video)

    Also, in a similar vein, you should be able to hire a NPC bard for those rare occasions when you can’t entice bard players to stay and play at your Freehold forever.

    I want cable. Or at least optical fiber

    A entrance to a mine would be nice but I think they will have that somewhere else.

    Yes and yes! If the NPC Bard basically functioned as a jukebox so you always got some music playing to add ambience that would be very cool to see and for all to enjoy, maybe let others choose their favourite's by making a request and have the bard play the song start a sort of playlist for him :D.

    Not sure what has been mentioned to be able to achive in freeholds but I have enjoyed the Inn idea many are putting together, having an innkeeper who sells and provides drinks to players with some "meaningful effects" might be fun to see, be it simply getting drunk in game or an actual small buff that lasts a while to help you on your way through the world would be interesting and be a benefit to both the Inn and the patron.

    Well what i am missing in all games are;

    - underground houses or extensions
    - oppertunities for housing in caves. Like to be this hermit in a mountain cave that can give out quests to players....
    - (player driven quest giver)

    Glad to hear you're dancing to the tune of the music idea :)

    I think Intrepid plans to allow players to run inns themselves or hire other players to run their inns. I'd assume they'll also make it so you can hire a NPC innkeeper. And, yes, they do plan on adding minor buffs for Freehold owners and visitors (it'll depend on the type of building on the Freehold).

    As long as you don't feel like you have to drop by your Freehold every time before heading out into the Ashes world (e.g. only way to gain rest exp / exp boosts), I love the idea of buffs incentivizing some of the RP and community interactions.

    Another cool idea is from the people over on this thread started by Valentines:
    https://forums.ashesofcreation.com/discussion/33148/nomadic-homes-traders#latest
    Imagine-- we first start out as this small travelling vehicles, then eventually to this large moving fortress-like. And you can upgrade spots to put either weapons or like "mobile farming location". There's no freehold for this, but maybe more of an apartment complex feel.

    Caravans that upgrades to movable fortresses-- I'm looking at you, God Eater 2


    As mentioned, this wouldn't work with Freehold plots of land but it could work as some kind of instanced building inside a ship or larger caravan. 

    A moving node would also be awesome but highly unlikely.

    But, I digress from talking about Freeholds!

    Anyway, go check out Valentines' thread as well  :)

    I'm guessing you enjoyed the Afterlife Club if you played Mass Effect 2.
