A question about starting income and families

Postby Karin on July 13th, 2015, 7:05 pm

Hello!

I understand that when starting a character, they get 100 gold mizas. My character is still living with her parents, and her father is a blacksmith. I'm thinking about basing them in Alvadas.

My question is this: does that starting money go towards specialised items that members of the family have, in this instance backsmithing tools? Or is it just assumed that the family already have these things?

And what about the starter home? It's perfectly fine that my character will be sharing the same room with her mother and father, but do extra beds/blankets have to use the starting mizas my character is given, even if she doesn't use these items?

Thank you in advance!

A question about starting income and families

HI there.

Having no CS I'd have to make some assumptions about you. First off, if your PC is Svefra, you'd have a casinor - your own - and not a true home. Your family would live in a pod out at sea. Svefra get their own starting packages to reflect their gypsyish natures.

Now if you are anything else, you should probably change your race to Human, Mixed. I think I read somewhere that you might be a half svefra half isur or something.... not sure, again you don't have a CS to check. But if that's the case, you can live with your family but you don't get the 500 for a house. You must take the starting package with a tent/horse and just live with your family.

You don't have to buy your family stuff. They have their own stuff. But you have to apply for them to be NPCs. And you have to still pay living expenses.... no 'I live with my family they pay my expenses'. You also need some sort of income... whatever that might be... to pay said living expenses.

Hello :)

Well, I think I'm going to have to be asking for lots of unusual circumstances, as the basis for my character is that she is Svefran, but has grown up mostly on land, with a svefran mother (who has abandoned the sea) and an isurian step-father. Unusual circumstances all round.

I'm glad to hear that I don't have to pay for my family's stuff, but I'll make sure to apply for them being NPCs. And as for jobs, I was going to roleplay finding a job when everything's ready!

Thank you very much for the reply, and I'd just like to say thank you for writing the guide to BBCode, as I was struggling somewhat. It's a Godsend xD
