A key part of Elin is managing My Home, a location the player sets up as a home base for housing.

Housing has several mechanics relating to land ownership, delegating tasks, raising your community, and Crafting.


Four walls (or more) and a door!


  • Maid: Expands your land, applies to pay additional taxes to Mysilia, and change the player's title. You can appoint your favorite residents and livestock as a maid. Gold bars are used to expand the land, which can be up to 90 km2 in size. Additional tax payments will increase the amount of taxes, but Missilia will send you back a number of gold bars corresponding to the amount of additional tax payments.
  • Livestock: Consume grass to produce milk and eggs.. Production efficiency varies by races. Livestock are not counted as residents, but instead cannot do their original jobs and hobbies, cannot be bought and sold, cannot be taken on adventures as pets, and no longer generate requests. You can appoint any resident as a livestock or return them as a resident from the resident board/list.
  • Secretary: Although not strictly a role, the presence of a secretary/elder NPC allows for investment in the town's development level/trading in the influence store. Investing in the town's development is not cheap, but it increases the size of all merchants in the town at the same time. The Influence Shop has the same selection of goods as in other cities, but the furniture collection tickets are for Missilia.


Taxes are due at the beginning of every month, with a tax bill being mailed to the player. Not paying your taxes in four month gives the player negative karma, and can lead to repercussions.

The amount of tax is the sum of [ base tax + fame tax + voluntary tax ].

The Base Tax is increased according to the number of months elapsed and the income from the fourth and subsequent non-tax-exempt land, while the Fame Tax is increased according to the player's fame.

The voluntary tax is a tax that can be paid at the player's discretion. The player can choose not to pay it, but if you do, you will receive gold bars as a return gift in proportion to the amount of the tax paid. The amount of voluntary taxes can be changed by asking the maid of My Home or the secretary of the town.


The Hearthstone is a mysterious stone placed on a player's land that allows him to store inhabitants in the stone and pull them out on another piece of land, rename that piece of land, and publish that map online.

As the hearthstone levels, more features of housing are slowly unlocked, but the danger level of the home also rises. Hearthstones level individually on a land-by-land basis, and leveling hearthstones in another land the player owns will provide bonuses to all lands based on the type of land held. The growth of the pact stones can be controlled by My Home policy.

The following table is an example of a stone of the pact in Meadow. The maximum number of inhabitants and other values vary depending on the land feats it has.

Level Admin Points Population Danger Level Building Modes Other Benefits
1 5 6 3 Terrain
2 10 9 7 Relocation Utility Department Policies
3 15 12 11 Clearing Item Protection

7 35 24 27 3rd Feat


Each resident of My Home has a primary job which they will try to fulfil if your home has the proper facilities and signboard, and a hobby which they will do on the side.

Work efficiency is influenced by the skill level of the resident performing the work and the quality of the bed.

Also, some types of NPCs have fixed jobs and hobbies, such as a magician whose job is research, and a farmer whose job is farming and his hobby is tinkering in the fields.

Also, some NPCs have fixed jobs and hobbies. If their job and hobbies are not fixed, you can reroll them by using the Whip of love; it can be purchased as you progress through the main quest.
