Dark Age of Camelot prepares to repossess a lot of abandoned houses

If you’ve got some property in Dark Age of Camelot that you haven’t visited in a while, you might want to make a trip back home to keep it from being taken away from you.

Broadsword is preparing a massive repossession of abandoned houses in DAoC come Patch 1.127, which is currently in testing. This will affect any houses that are condemned and have a repossession timer on them due to their associated accounts being inactive. In short, if you haven’t logged in for more than three months, you should do so ASAP.

“After 1.127’s launch, any newly inactive account will have no action taken for 30 days,” Broadsword explained. “At 30 days of account inactivity, the account’s house(s) will be set to the 59-day repossession timer (for a total of 90 days of account inactivity before repossession).”

It’d be neat if a game turned this into a mechanic.
Certainly if you rent a house and stop paying rent, your rent is terminated and your stuff goes into storage. (You’d have to pay a relatively small but incrementing fee to get it back out, if/when you come back.)
But if you BUY a house (so you don’t have that ongoing rent) you do have some trivial maintenance cost. If that goes unpaid for a while (maybe there’s a mechanic where you can put funds on account for it at a bank) the house falls first into disrepair…then abandoned…and then finally becomes a spawn location for mobs that can now cause all sorts of trouble in an otherwise-secure housing district.

Depending on how long/far it’s been in disrepair, the mobs get tougher.

Someone taking the initiative to go in and clear out your house resets the spawn growth and is rewarded with some small portion of your abandoned belongings.

Ultimately, if it goes long enough, it would need a party to clear, and the defeat of the boss bad would give them a good chunk of your possessions, and when that runs out, the title to your house (or a share of the proceeds when it sells to the next owner).

All my stuff will be on the repo npc. That’s the best house, no rent. :)

Every game needs this. Especially SWG.

Yeah, I’d pay for that for a month or two. I’m sure the little influx of cash from people who would, even for a short time, would be worth it.

Do the House owners get a refund? ;)

They should have the houses come alive and the players have to fight the evil condemned
