Would you like a NPC spouse for your home?

Wouldn't it be great to come home after your adventures to a warm welcome from your spouse or partner? Somebody to make your home feel less empty. They would wander around your home doing random things and saying occasional lines. They might even sing an occasional song!

    Yes, more options = better, for sure.

    In the meantime, you can add a nearly unlimited number of Essential Housing Tools FX NPCs if you play on PC. We have three already and you can have ones of your own created as well if you would like...

    Not really I have one in my real life house and one is enough. :)

    I would like to have the ability to add other NPC's though. Whether they are milling about or doing things like cooking and gardening they would need to have some real movement and not just stand there like pets do.

    Exactly. Took the words right out of my mouth!

    Yes, any new NPC giving more life to the houses would be most welcome.

    One that would actually move around the house, perhaps even with some idle animations here and there, would be awesome. I am ready to throw my money at the screen for any such NPC's.

    You do know, that you can visit the primary residence of any of your friends or guildies, unless they have forbidden visitors in their home, don't you?

    Many of us do visit other players' houses. For instance, does your guild have a guildhall? We do, with Mundus Stones and set crafting stations.

    I'd for sure like some npcs to add to my house and as such I would be okay with being able to have a spouse in my house. I'd model mine after my girlfriend and give her the same name. Would be pretty cool.

    Absolutely. In Skyrim I always loved coming home to my in-game husband Vilkas who used to tell me that he had made a bit of gold on the side while I was out adventuring, and baked approximately 27 pies - one for each day I hadn't been home. The kids were fighting over whether the little snow fox one of them had found could stay or not... Ah, good times.

    Spouse, bard, guard, cook, gardener, farmer --- any NPC will do!

    Especially if they have some kind of interaction, like the current banker and merchant. Maybe even throw some different dialogue options in there, and while they're at it maybe even make them a bit more mobile, or at least have a larger variety of idle poses and actions.

    I've often called for them to provide dialogs allowing us to romance whichever NPCs we might choose. In the story of Morgha Kul, for example, he developed a relationship with Seyne back in Bleak Rock, and even still uses her dagger. It would have been very nifty if there was a possibility to romance her, and even have her as a companion in his house (if he owned one).

    Barefoot and pregnant or no deal. Has to be realistic if they are going to occupy your house 24/7

    I would like NPCs for my house, full stop.

    It really is quite ridiculous that we cannot place a whole range of NPCs in our homes, just like we can for the 3 service assistants.

    I want a cook for my kitchen, I want a smith, clothier, woodworker, farmer, stable master and above all I want guards.

    These NPCs do not need to be interactable, though that would be a nice touch, they can just be inanimate, for aesthetics . There are literally thousands of such NPCs in the game, so they already exist. Populating our homes with a community would really increase the immersion and fun involved in housing.

    PS, while I am here, why cant we place all characters in our homes as well? Whichever one you are playing is simply removed and all characters you wish to place would be available, just like our service assistants are.

    Yes, and not only a spouse, but finally a stable master, too. The more I wanna hire my own 15 charaters with a personalized job, like waiter, cleaner, gardener, cook, barista or something else you can imagine and over all the possibility to interact with my all charaters finally, to reduce the hell *** login/logout. Then I miss the tables for crafting daylies in my house, because jumping in the city, picking up the daylies, turning back in my home, jumping again for deliver, I wounder, who made this noob decicion and force me enjoying boring loading screens, which only stealing my game time. Every login/logout is also stressing the server only, but the developers still woundering: "why the server is stressed all the time?". Maybe the entire concept of housing needs a reformation. Housing isn't well thought at all and the limits are also a joke. And at least Nuzhimeh and Tythis should do their job inhouse, like every merchant or banker is doing. Inhouse: Put the possibility to repair my stuff and give accesst to the guild bank! It is ridiculous they don't do it inhouse.

    The Main Capitals for the production are nerving: I just wanna craft my stuff and must hear the every 5 secound starting and boring dialogs from NPCs or I must suffer those prats, which think, is importent to fight in a area, where I'm (and others are) trying to concentrate.

    Stable Master, Jobs or hireing my Chars could be solved via crown store. Combine the char administration with housing, then housing will make much more sense. Yes, please change the over-limitation up to an well thought concept. Maybe you will get it one day, but my home is my castle, and I wanna do all the mentioned thinks in my house. And I know: I am not alone with this possition, just read the forum!

    Well, I'd like to be able to place my alts in the house but I'd settle for a spouse. Assuming they would be somewhat customizable and not clones of everyone else's spouse (like the banker/merchant)........

    I think there definitely needs to be more NPCs available as STAFF in the bigger homes, at the very least. I mean, most of those things are better thought of as CASTLES, and no single person would live there. You'd have housekeepers, stablehands, cooks... and all their families. Then there would be guards and soldiers.... and so on.
