I see two paths for Houses going forward:1) They stay more or less as they are, but get some hardcoded perks so people will want to be in them.2) They become exclusive (ish) clubs. Let's say your character is a tradesman in Hashan. After some time plying his trade, he becomes successful enough / rich enough that the Merchants send him an invitation. People would no longer choose a House, Houses would choose people.
Each House should have more purpose than being -the- House for a certain class within a certain city. If that purpose can't be found the House should be deleted imnsho.
Sorry, maybe i am missing something, but the first thing you do is choose a class, and since as a certain class there is only one house for you at most in every city, you automatically have your house chosen when you choose a city. And houses handle newcomers pretty well, this would only change the focus to the entire city helping instead of more specialized help from the house, I do not see the point of this.
I think the idea behind the new system is that there wouldn't necessarily be only one House in a given city which accepts your class
I like helping newbies, it's opportunities for rp that drive me and that is a great opportunity for it. One of the problems with having enough novice aides is having few members in a house period. Even Mhaldor if they had all their novice aides helping the whole city, rather than just their houses, would have more comprehensive coverage.
The coverage doesn't change. The pool of aides doesn't increase and the pool of Novices doesn't decrease.
