Welcome to the Housing Registry for Independent Housing!

As Whistler Crest expands and newly christened adults begin to spread their metaphorical (and sometimes literal) wings with their newfound freedom, the seasons just aren’t room enough for them. Much of Whistler Crest is small, so there’s plenty of space for budding adults to establish themselves a new home. The housing districts are areas in town which have been designated and has gotten the okay for homes and neighborhoods to be built. There are several housing districts, and each district is suited to different lifestyles, so everyone will be able to find the location to build the home perfectly suited to them.

What are the districts?

The housing districts simply refers to the general area where the home is located in relativity to the center of Whistler Crest. Homes in the city district are the closest, with them being literally built in-between and around the existing buildings. Outskirts is the second closest, being a brisk walk away and just on the outside of the existing town, and the agricultural/countryside district is the furthest district, being very far into the rolling hills south of the town, it often takes some form of transport animal to get to the town in a timely manner, so most denizens who live in this district own Varkery or other mounts OR begin the journey into town early in the morning to get there when the rest of town begins to wake. While not technically a district, some odder folk sometimes take living in the woods close to town, though they are riddled with wild beasts and life out there is tough and certainly not for the faint of heart.

 

Each recognized district has its upsides and downsides to living there, but between the three available districts and the odd fourth option, there’s a place for everyone to find and create their perfect home!

Housing Districts

City District

City District homes are smaller, cozier homes for those who want to be in the center of it all, or who just won’t need a massive mansion to be happy. Their limited space makes them baseline cheaper than other districts, and are perfect for singles or couples who know they won’t have a large family. As a result, however, they can only receive a limited number of house upgrades due to the inability to expand outward in large capacities.

  • Basic City Home

  • Townhouse/Apartment

Outskirt District

Outskirt District homes are slightly further from town without being too inconvenient of a walk, and that extra bit of space allows for much more freedom and ability upgrades-wise. Homes built on the outskirts of town can be infinitely upgraded, perfect for those who want very large families, or who suspect they may have large families in the future. Outskirts homes are able to be upgraded infinitely, so additions and extra rooms can be added whenever one so chooses, however due to it still being in relatively close proximity to the town farm animals are a definite no-no for these housings.

Countryside District

Countryside District homes are a minimum of an hour’s walk from the town without a mount or transportation of any kind, but those that live in the countryside can reap benefits that no other housing district could dream of. Agricultural homes (most commonly and less formally referred to as countryside homes) benefit greatly from their distance from town, and are free to expand their home as much as they want as well as being able to build barns, coops, and fields for owning non-domesticated livestock animals! The only way to own livestock in Whistler Crest is to live in a countryside home, where the appropriate space can be provided for them to be happy…and where their somewhat offensive smell won’t bother the more delicate folk.

HOUSING Forest.png

Forest District

Forest District homes are not built in a district formally recognized by the council. The council does not endorse members of the town going off and living in the woods, as it has the possibility to be incredibly unsafe with the animals that live in the woods being much more harmful than a grumpy Wild Pieshu. Homes in the woods are difficult to maintain and are relatively small, open to even less upgrades than the cozy city homes, but some find a special kind of solace living among nature and its capricious beauty. Forest homes are best fit for singles or couples with only one, maybe two kids due to their size. But for those who are willing to commit, it’s perfect for those who want to truly live their squatting in the woods/cottagecore dreams as it provides total seclusion from the outside world.

HOUSING UPGRADES

 

What Are Housing Upgrades?


Housing upgrades are the special additions that can be added to the base home everyone starts off with to customize and personalize each character’s home to make it special and unique to them and their family and needs. Upgrades range from extra rooms for children, special rooms for pets, to large-scale projects like barns and fields for animals. What upgrades and the number of upgrades which are available depend on the type of housing. Some housing upgrades also are tied to jobs* and can be used to generate Capella!
* The job system is still under works, but the upgrades can still be bought and used, just not able to generate money at this time! [Feb.2022] . Upgrades marked with ** are tied to a job function.

COSTS

How Do I Get A Home?
 

Starter homes are 5 Ringel, and cannot be reduced in price by prompts. The base home includes a master bedroom, one extra room, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. Expansions can be purchased for various amounts of Ringel, and can be reduced in price by drawing prompts
 

Afterwards, whenever you’re building add-ons to your home you only need to do one prompt for each upgrade being added. If you’re not a fan of the work, you can circumvent the need to do prompts by opting to pay the price of each upgrade instead and get the addition instantly.

 

If you would like to build your home expansions through prompts, you can choose from the list of the following prompts or come up with your own so long as they clearly show the expansions construction being the main focus or its construction as the main intent of the prompt:
 

  • Choosing materials for the expansion

  • Sketching room concepts

  • Choosing paints for the room

  • Bringing materials to the construction site

  • Helping the construction (Building rooms, floors, the roof, etc.)

  • Putting together furniture

  • Decorating the rooms

  • Painting the walls


All prompts should be shaded with a medium background!
