Avatar’s Update #336: Castle & Keep Sized Homes, New User Experience & New Dungeons Livestream Today

Castle and Keep Sized Homes!

Shroud of the Avatar’s housing system has so far had 4 sizes of homes: Row, Village, Town, and City. At the same time there have been six sizes of lots that these homes could be placed on: Row, Village, Town, City, Keep, and Castle. Each lot was double the size of the lot below it. As long as a home could fit on the lot below it could fit on a larger lot. Therefore a Village sized home could fit on a Town lot (or any larger lot).

For the very first time, starting this week, we will be offering homes larger than City sized! The first of these homes are massive seven deck Giant Pirate Galleon Castle Homes. That is correct, they are so large they can only fit on Castle Lots! For now there is a Dry-dock and Water version of this gigantic ship. Read more…
