Families are a means to relate up to nine characters.[1][2][3]

  • Family sizes are normally limited to eight characters.[1]
  • A character may only belong to one family at a time.[1]
  • Leaving one family and joining another family will have a cooldown period in the order of days.[1]

There are costs associated with family creation and maintenance.[5]

  • Some costs are shared among the family members and other costs are specific to the family head.[5]

Family names

Characters will have a first-name and an optional surname (last name).[6]

  • There is a minimum length of three for a character name.[8]
  • Special characters, including apostrophes and hyphens, are currently not allowed in character names.[9]
Currently we don't allow special characters in character names (including apostrophes and/or hyphens). It's possible this changes in the future.[9]Ry Schueller

Character names will appear on the character sheet and optionally on the character website page.[10]

  • In-game a character's name is displayed above their head. This can be the first or last name.[10]


There is a marriage mechanic in Ashes of Creation, including same-sex marriages.[3]

You might have a NPC that is specifically a RP event NPC. This is a person who marries you and you come up to them and they have a quest that relates to finding the cosmetic attire for the wedding; and once you have that achieved you must find a Best man or Maid of honor- these are systems that can be created around immersion in the game.[12]Steven Sharif

Marriage may unlock different activities that are not available to characters who are not married.[13]

There are not plans for gender neutral neutral pronouns. However our marriage system which will be present does not take into account gender. So two individuals of any sex will be able to utilize the marriage system and we feel that that's pretty important to really reflect the nature the cultures in Ashes of Creation: That it does not have that conflict present in this fantasy world that we may have experienced in the past in our real world; and that's a good place both from a sanctuary standpoint through people who are maybe experiencing that in the real world to kind of get away from it in the fantasy world: We wanted to provide that type of outlet.[14]Steven Sharif

Player housing storage

Chests are a type of furniture that provides localized storage within a specific house.[21][22][23]

  • Players must obtain and place storage containers in their player-owned housing.[22]
  • Different grades of storage containers have different inventory capacities.[22]
    • There are restrictions on the grades of storage containers available in different types of houses.[22]
  • Access permissions can be set to allow others to access a player's personal storage devices.[21][24][25][26]
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

Household security

A permissions system will enable an owner to grant access to specific parts of their housing.[32][25][33]

A property has a single owner.[32]

It'll be a single owner based system for those types of properties- for properties in general, but it doesn't prevent players obviously from you know collaborating and pooling resources in order to achieve certain achievements in the game.[32]Steven Sharif
