Cooperative Houses of Elanthia and Meeting Hall Organizations
The Cooperative Houses of Elanthia
(CHE) and Meeting Hall Organization
(MHO) systems are excellent ways to meet other players for learning, roleplay, and
friendship. Each house and Meeting Hall has its own agenda, and in concert they
represent a myriad of different people and themes.
Cooperative Houses are a throwback to Elanthia’s past, and are often large manor
houses that offer their members benefits in exchange for monthly fees. These
bonuses include expanded locker space and access to private house areas. Most
exist in Wehnimer's Landing, but scatterings exist in other towns like Ta'Vaalor, and Icemule Trace.
Meeting Hall Organizations are smaller, more current, and feature greater diversity
in purposes and goals than do CHEs. As a player, you can be a member of a number
of MHOs, but only a single CHE at a time.
