◒ Intro / Benefits
Beyond story and character development, there is another reason you might want to build your character a house: loyalty. If your character has a permanent home to live in, their Pokemon will feel secure, stable, and comfortable. Once your character officially owns a home, every development and social thread that takes place at least partially at the home will earn an extra 1% loyalty for any of their Pokemon active during that thread.
◒ Costs / Requirements
The price range for a house is 700-900 tokens. The lower range of 700-800 is for simple houses, while the higher range of 800-900 is for bigger or fancier houses, or houses with a lot of land. The exact cost will be randomized within the range that the admin thinks is fair. If your character is fixing up an abandoned house rather than building a new one from scratch, the same concept applies, except that the cost goes toward repairs rather than construction.
If you don't want to pay it all upfront, you can work for a discount by writing a development topic about the construction or repairs of the house. For every 1k written about building or repairing the house, 50 tokens is taken off the price. Threads that are written for the purpose of getting a discount on housing do not earn tokens at the end of the thread.
If your character is a native who already owns a house, a Branded who gets free housing in Crater, a character buying/inheriting a house from another player character, or a character in some other similar situation, rather than paying a token price, you must write a thread detailing the history of the house. This can include: the selection of the plot of land the house is built on, a description of the plot the house is built on, the building process, the previous owners (if any), any renovations on the house, a detailed description of the layout and all of the rooms, and so forth. There are no exact word count requirements on this, but we do expect you to push yourself and be as detailed as you can. For a good example, check out Soren's Housing Thread.
◒ Moving / Selling
If your character wants to pick up and move to a different city, or simply wants to build a newer, better house, you do have to go through the entire process again.
You can at least sell the house before moving to get a small portion of money back. If you are selling to another player character, you can charge as much as you want. If you are selling to an NPC, you are not likely to get a good price; expect to receive no more than 300-500 tokens. If your character is selling their house before moving to a different city, the sale of the house must be completed before your character leaves the area that the city is in.
You do not HAVE to sell; you are allowed to own multiple houses.
