Our new season is now open: Spring 1677 !
This article explains the how and why of the housing arrangements of your character.
Most seasons in Age of Intrigue are based in London. The few seasons we play outside London (for instance in Windsor) alternative housing will be found for all characters. This article is solely about the London Situation.
Housing First Season
There are several options for your character based on gender and wealth level:
IC the reason for this arrangement is that to find a convenient town house takes time. OOC we like the fact that characters are able to interact more if they stay close together. Exception: if you took the benefit Town Dwelling, you will start with one in First season because it had been previously purchased.
Housing After First Season
In the second season, provided it is in London, the characters that are male, or if female the married and widowed ones, will gain the following housing:
- An average house in Piccadilly Street or a modest house in Chelsea for the Financially Secure
- a deluxe house in Piccadilly Street, or a average house in Chelsea, or a modest house in St. James Square for the Financially Well-to-do
- a fine house in Chelsea, or a fine house in St. James Square, or a modest house on Pall Mall for the Financial Abundance
Just to be clear on this, it thus follows that the following two categories of characters will not move to a town house upon their second season:
- characters who are impoverished
- unmarried ladies
You can elect to live more modestly than your wealth level or in other areas. If you wish to live above your station, you can invest money to buy something more expensive than indicated. If you do not have the funds living above your station will see you come into debt. Note that if you are female only widows can manage their own affairs, aka make investments, buy houses etc. The rest are dependant on family or husband to do that.
