      We'll definitely tie in some important quest lines with the houses and we'll do our very best to make houses feel like more than simply storage lockers. Also, an alchemy garden is a great idea! Necromancy will play some role in the game and there will be some Necromantic spells; we'll try and extend this as far as possible because we love Necromancy!

      @Chris Perhaps the undead playable character stretch goal will be able to cast undead/necro spells? I hope so as well. It'd be great if one if your characters died, they could be resurrected, but as undead using this character. Enough life to finish the fight and make it back to town to cure undead.

      Nice stretch goals and hope the house isn't only a place you visit to use the storage chest, must have at least the necessary structures to use the different types of crafting which will be available.

      i think that it could be very cool to have some special quests related to the house ! ghost issue, monster invasion in the basement, discover a cave or ruins under the basement and after cleaning the ruins to be able to pay a pnj worker to extend the house and add new rooms for exemple : a underground garden for alchemical ingredient, or mining area with pnj to hire for special ore, etc...
      fews game offers a real housing experience with quest + extension of the building.

      @Kevin, thanks for the great suggestion! @Arnaud, as far as houses go we'll probably create some small customization/decoration options to personalize them (and of course lots of containers to safely hoard your stuff, this is a key function of a house in Antharion). Getting a house in the game should be meaningful and we'll do our very best to make it feel so! Currently we don't have any plans for DLCs but it's not out of the question.

      Suggestion: Put this list on the main page at the top. The chance that new backers will pledge more will be greater. And those of us who already pledged will be reminded daily why we need to up out pledges.

      Cool! I hope a player house would add meaningful gameplay and not just be "the place you go when you don't feel like spending 3gp on an inn and don't care about having to walk an extra half hour to get there."

      Creator Arnaud on December 5, 2012

      Could you please describe "Buy a house", what will be possible in the house ? stock items ? decorate ?
      I'm totaly agree with Leni :) it would be nice to have pets and house in dlc !

      Hopefully we reach those stretch goals. I want a house... and pets :D But if we don't could this be possible DLCs after release?

      @David, we still plan on including alchemy. Crafting is a real possibility but depends heavily on how long certain parts of development take us.

      Creator Dave blanchard on December 4, 2012

      So what about crafting and brewing? Also, is there no magic items in the base game?

      Whoa! A porting stretch goal! And it's paired with a really cool content expansion, awesome for everyone!

      Thank you for listing information on the stretch goals. I'm really looking forward to the Northern Point Winter Island; I love arctic/winter settings, and also looking forward to the magical items, monster types,, and the Mega Dungeon. Looks great!
