Okay, since the trigger date is set for tomorrow, I got one last detail to add from MMO's I forgot about: House Portals
House Portals are gained by looting special monsters or can be purchased from special builder NPC's. Your first house portal will be given for free at level 10. This basic portal is about the size of a half-dollar coin and will transport you to a 8x8 room with a single piece of furniture (usually a twin bed).
The time dilation effect is the same as other portals, however you will only be able to spend 1 hour inside per summon of this portal. You will only be able to summon this portal once every 24 hours real world time. While in the portal, you can summon only one of your buddies or pets for a 1 on 1 "training" session. No other person can enter your house portal until you upgrade it.
So let's talk about upgrades. While each portal gained has a set size, upgrades and furniture can be looted or purchased. Furniture is self explanatory, but furniture gained from looting tends to have color and style similar to the monster it came from. As for upgrades, they can add movable walls, add emotion affecting spells, increase the time available inside, decrease summoning time, increase the number of buddies and pets that can be summoned at once, and let approved people enter your house portal.
The last upgrade is the family upgrade. You can select titles like sister, brother, mother, father, daughter, son, and so on with relation to direct family, or you can select marriage related titles such as wife, husband, step-sister, step-brother, and so on. When you add one of these titles to a buddy they will have that relationship to you added to their personality and this will also allow you to summon them in the house portal without counting against the summon limit. Multiple titles can be added to a buddy like sister/wife.
