About Families

Being a part of a family in Alganon is a great way to join with players that share similar interests. For example, power gamers can be in the same family and casual gamers can be in their own family. You can switch families for a fee or by completing a certain quest, but only between families for a given race. A Kodian cannot join a Human family, for example. While family names will be displayed by default upon entering the game, you will have the option to turn them off.

Each race has five different families, and each family represents a different "theme" that attracts gamers of a specific category. Instantly communicate with your new family, protect your siblings, and establish your family's name in the history books.

  • Achiever - Players focused on building their character, collecting things
  • Competitor - Players who focus on competition
  • Explorer - Players who prefer to explore the game
  • Socializer - Those who prefer social interaction foremost
  • Crafter - Those who prefer to gather, build and sell items

Major cities will have Family merchants that sell merchandise just to specific family members. These items are called heirlooms and only affect the player visually. Wedding dresses, tabbards, and even smoking peter pan caps, all types of fun stuff will be available. Different families will have different colors and themes. There are also heirloom pets, such as kittens, frogs, etc. All of these options are based on race and family type.

Every family has its own chat channel that all family members can freely participate in. This channel is automatically "made active" when you log into the game. You will be able to disable/remove the channel, but can rejoin it at any time. You can only join their own family's channel. MyAlganon will have a Family section that lists all the families in the game (for each race) and the members of each family, when they joined, their heirloom status, etc.

You can also create guilds and accomplish tasks to be etched in the Great Library's history books.

Human Familes
Agronar: Achievers
In all the history of the Asharr families, the Agronar name has become synonymous with excellence and accomplishment. Always setting the bar for those who follow after them, the Agronar bloodline is known for their never-ending thirst for advancement and ability to finish what they started. No matter how many battles they win, villains they slay, or records they hold, they always seek to find another. The Agronar have secured their place in the history of men, and now they seek to advance their legacy even more. The Agronar family will not be satisfied until they have done all that can be done, and then some.
Hokott: Competitors
During the Great War, when monstrous Gargantuak demons rose from the depths and began to lay waste to all life on Alganon, the Hokott Family saw this as the chance to prove their strength. Each member of the Hokott Family kept a collection of stones, adding a new stone to the pile for each demon they slew. By the time the Great War had ended, the piles of stones stood taller than a dozen men. The roads of Asheran Forest were paved from these stones, every step taken today is a reminder of the Hokott Family's spirit of competition. Today, this same zeal is also applied to the fields of politics and commerce. The Hokott Family is always pushing the other families to improve themselves in their respective areas of expertise, or fall behind.
Martos: Crafters
Most of the coins minted in Asheran and used throughout the Empire are stamped with the face of one of the great Emperors of Asheran's past. All, that is, except for the copper coin. The most common coin in the land bears the face of Jaan Martos, founder of the East Asheran Trading Company, and the greatest trader in the history of Alaganon. His legacy lives on today in his descendants. The Martos Family are the greatest artisans and traders in the Empire, known not only for their abilities to craft goods of the finest quality, but also for their ability to acquire rare and magnificent items from around the globe. It is said that if there is something you need, there is a member of the Martos family that sells it.
Ardanis: Explorers
The Ardanis Family are known to be Asheran's greatest explorers, and have been for generations. The Journals of Vann Ardanis, and his search for a Northern Passage are taught in all of Asheran's schools, and the maps drawn by his granddaughter, Lora Ardanis, are considered to be the most expansive and most accurate maps ever created. If a member of the Ardanis family takes pen to paper and writes, "Here Be Dragons," it is because she has seen them with her own eyes. In fact, the Ardanis name has entered the slang and lingo of the gypsy clans that roam the forests around Asheran. Should a gypsy woman say to you, "Footprints of Ardanis," she means that she has seen your situation before. There is nothing new. For no matter where you go, a member of the Ardanis Family has been there first.
DeVoss: Socializers
No one family understands both the intricacies and importance of communication more so than the DeVoss Family. Famous for their place in the social hierarchy, members of the DeVoss Family never find themselves in the company of strangers. For no matter where you go, or who you speak to, someone there considers the DeVoss family to be amongst their closest friends. "Information is the real coin of power", is a well known saying among the DeVoss, and it shows with their masterful handling of all forms of media, leaving no question too difficult or trivial for discussion and dissemination. When the Emperor has a message of great importance to deliver, he only needs to tell a member of the DeVoss family, as he knows they will soon spread the information across the lands with the grace and intimacy that only a DeVoss can posess. Through their vast influence and techniques in exchanging ideas the DeVoss Family has become world renowned and well loved.
