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.

Talrok Familes
Vexxnax: Achievers
Known for their vast collections of trophies and achievements, Members of the Vexxnax Family see challenges not as obstacles but as opportunities to excell. Driven by their desire to achieve all that can be achieved, they find themselves on the forefront of Talrok advancement, and are always looking to enhance their abilities and increase their skills. Members of the Vexxnax Family are known to keep souvenirs of their accomplishments, and pride themselves in completing the set. It is not uncommon to find a member of the Vexxnax Family who has on display the shattered blades of enemies slain, a handful of dirt from every corner of the globe, and an ear from every beast that stalks the wilds, but still is not satisfied and continues to search for more to accomplish.
Xajikk: Competitors
To understand the fires that burn in the heart of all members of the Xajikk Family, one need only look to the history of their greatest ancestor, the mighty Akarr Xajikk. A proud servant of Ghazmok, and one of the greatest soldiers in the history of the Talrok, Akarr amassed the spoils of war and the Xajikk Family became very wealthy - but wealth meant little to Akarr. He longed only for the thrill of victory. It was rumored that Akarr Xajikk was immortal, as even in his old age, he continued to fight in the name of the gods. Wishing to die in the greatest battle in history, the Akarr spent the entire family fortune placing a bounty on his own head. One-by-one, heroes and villains alike came to slay the great warrior, but none ever succeeded. Even on his deathbed, Akarr managed to defeat dozens of the world's greatest assassins. Much to his chagrin, Akarr died of old age, peacefully, in his sleep. His tombstone reads simply, "I win."
Juxxas: Crafters
Even the eldest of Linguists does not know for certain whether the word Juxxas was first used to name members of this Family, or if it was first used to mean "quality," but today, the two words are one-and-the-same. In every city in the Empire, the Juxxas family is known for its attention to detail and ability to produce the highest quality goods. Even Xukiss, the god of industry, often seeks out a member of the Juxxas Family for use as craftsmen and engineers. Gifted crafters and traders, the Juxxas Family is likewise revered for their ability to turn a profit in any situation. It is said that the Juxxas Family are "breeders of coin," for if you give them a copper, they will soon return with a hundred gold.
Kusaruis: Explorers
There are places so hidden that even the gods have forgotten about them. There are caves so deep that the stones inside them have never seen the light of day. There are vistas so grand that the awe they inspire could stop your heart, and you could literally die from the beautiful view. Members of the Kusaruis Family have seen these places, and they continue to search for more. This family of explorers is known for their ability to visit the places no one else has seen. Members of the Kusaruis Family are such prolific explorers that the Great Library once held a special category for the first "Non-Kusaruis" to make a discovery, as it is generally assumed that if something can be discovered, it will be a member of the Kusaruis Family that discovers it first.
Gran'tokk: Socializers
Gran'tokk family members pride themselves as the masters of poise and grace, boasting the most lucrative and expansive network in all of Alganon. Using their belief that one poisoned ear is worth a hundred poisoned arrows, the Gran'tokk pull the strings of some of the most influential members of society. However, their influence is not always in a subversive manner. Masters in both swordplay and wordplay, the Gran'tokk can also use their great skill and cunning to entertain others and forge powerful alliances. Very little escapes their attention, and often deadly games of cat and other-cat are played by family members to see who can indirectly cause the most chaos and inspire the most action, using nothing but words and whispers.
