A home is a place you return to after you are done questing and adventuring, a beacon of certainty in an unpredictable and often dangerous world. Aeternum is a massive, beautiful, diverse environment on a mysterious island. It is wild and untamed, parts of it are pure heavenly paradise, but it is also ridden with demonic hellscape-inducing breaches.
This guide is not about the housing theory. Let me be your Aeternum Real Estate agent. I’ll tell you about houses in every city of Aeternum and about the special house in every city, if it has one, of course.
Towards the south of Aeternum lies Windsward, a lush grassland filled to the brim with natural resources.
Whether you’re gathering wood for the fire, stone for the smithy, or water for your food, Windsward will provide.
It’s a small town situated near the center of the region, with a small river cutting through the middle.
1. There are a couple of houses for 5 000 gold, and one of them is pretty unique. Situated on the second floor, on a huge basement, with a large veranda.
Pretty small, but very cozy inside. With a great view of the central Windsward square.
2. Another one – small 5 000 gold house:
All the houses in Windsward are in red, white, and yellow colors.
3. For example, a 10 000 gold house in Windsward:
It’s pretty small inside and doesn’t have a backyard:
4. There is also a one floored version of it:
It also has a small backyard:
5. This house with three floors will cost you 15 000 gold:
6. Here is the one floored version of it:
With interior pretty the same as 10 000 gold houses:
The small backyard included:
7. The last type of house for 15 000 gold is this one:
There’s nothing special neither in its interior nor in the backyard:
8. There are three kinds of 20 000 gold houses in Windsward. With one floor:
and a huge garden:
With two floors:
and a pretty small garden:
And one more house with some kind of hallway for 20 000 gold:
It also has a little backyard:
9. There’s also one house in Windsward for 20 000 gold I’d like to mention:
With a basement, two floors, and very, very roomy inside:
The last one of the 20 000 gold houses in Windsward is also special. It has a basement, 2 floors, and two separate rooms:
There’s not so much to mention about houses in the First Light. All of them are in orange and green colors.
1. For example, the 10 000 gold house:
2. The house for 20 000 gold (on the left) and the one for 15 000 gold (on the right):
3. But there are still some unique houses that look like fishing huts, the one for 15 000 gold:
4. And another one for 5 000 gold:
5. A house with an open second floor, nice for tropical climate, the one for 15 000 gold:
6. And another one for 20 000 gold:
The houses in Cutlass Keys are painted in white, blue, and gray.
1. Pretty interesting that this house costs twice more than in Windsward. It’s worth 10 000 gold here:
2. Most houses here got an overhanging second floor, like those for 10 000 gold (on the left) and 15 000 gold (on the right):
3. Most facades are flat (both houses costs 20 000 gold):
All houses in Monarch Bluff are in white, blue, and orange colors.
1. Here you can see three almost the same houses, the side one costs 20 000 gold, and the central one you can buy for 15 000 gold. Not sure why.
2. There is a special house in Monarchs Bluff. Two houses, to be more precise. They’re connected to each other with the gallery, but inside the gallery is locked by the boards:
You can find orange, yellow and red houses in Everfall.
1. Mostly, they got big gardens and backyards, like this one for 20 000 gold:
2. This 15 000 gold priced house’s backyard is even bigger than the house itself:
3. And the top house for 20 000 gold with the largest garden:
And the largest backyard in the whole Aeternum:
Grey, white and dusty are the main house color themes in Brightwood. You won’t find any bright colors in this shady town.
I couldn’t find any special houses or anything special here at all, but, maybe, that was exactly the New World’s designer’s plan.
Those houses… They’re a bit…rundown. Or, if you prefer to think of it as having character. Sure, they’re a little rustic, the swamp mist can creep in if you’re not careful, and you probably don’t want to stray too far from the firelight at night.
The Weaver’s Fen colors are, surprisingly, red, blue, yellow, and white, so there is something colorful in this swampy region.
1. If you’re a fan of swamp romantics but don’t have enough gold, you’ve got the only one variant:
Not sure why they did so many windows. Walls got everything you need to enjoy the fresh swampy air:
2. This is what you’ve got for 10 000 gold in this romantic town:
Pretty cozy inside, though:
3. This one is worth 15 000 gold:
Still, absolutely empty inside:
4. Another house for 15 000 gold:
And yes, it is still waiting for at least one owner.
5. This luxury house will cost you 20 000 gold.
Unfortunately, no one has already bought this house, so it’s absolutely empty too.
6. But there is still a special house in Weaver’s Fen. It has the largest veranda of all the houses in Aeternum. For the price of 20 000 gold:
Same rustic walls inside. At least this house has one owner.
They say only the very brave or very foolish make their home in Mourningdale.
It’s a region where rain is a constant companion, and if sodden boots aren’t enough to slow you down, then the wretched creatures that stalk its many ruins will surely hinder you.
Yet, in spite of its dank, dark atmosphere, there is beauty to be found here.
All houses are white. There’s nothing special about them, so I’ll only show some examples.
1. Here, we’ve got the cheap 5 000 gold house with a big veranda and basement, just like in Windsward:
2. This one is a bit more expensive, 10 000 gold:
3. Mansion with three floors for 15 000 gold:
4. This one is 20 000 gold worth:
If you want to smell a fresh salty breeze, walking to the tavern in the evening for a bottle of rum with your old friends, watching the sunset up the ship’s masts in the harbor, if your favorite song is “Drunken Sally”, this is a place for you to settle.
Or, maybe, you’ll feel some nostalgia for the Pirate Bay from World of Warcraft.
White and green colors run this town.
1. Let’s start from my favorite type of houses, for 5 000 gold:
2. An alternative variant for 5 000 gold:
3. You can buy this house for 10 000 gold:
4. This one for 10 000 is fine too:
5. This sweet home cost 15 000 gold:
6. You can buy this house for 15 000 gold, and it looks just the same as the one for 20 000 gold:
7. The white manor like this will cost you 20 000 gold:
8. Both of those houses also cost 20 000 gold, so they’re surprisingly many expensive houses in this town:
Now, we travel to the boggy swamps of Reekwater, a lonely place haunted by treachery and death and named for its pervasive, sickeningly sweet stench. Those who have taken residence in the region have built their homes high in the twisted trees and branches, and you’ll need to keep a close eye on your map if you want to navigate this labyrinth safely.
If you’re a fan of woods, elves, and/or treehouses, this is a place for you. In the evening, it looks incredibly romantic.
1. The cheapest house, 5000 gold:
2. House for 10 000 gold doesn’t really look better:
At least, it has more room inside:
The balcony in some houses is fine too:
3. You can compare the size of the house for 5 000 gold and for 10 000 gold:
4. I did my best to find a house for 20 000 gold, but I’ve only found this unique one for 15 000 gold. Seems like this is the most expensive house in Reekwater, and it’s the only one house looks like a ship in the whole New World:
This is how it looks inside:
Ebonscale Reach is a very special town. It’s pretty popular among the players for the eastern theme and breathtaking views:
1. As for the houses, those two will cost you only 5 000 gold:
Pretty small inside, but with a fireplace:
2. You can buy this one with a great balcony for 10 000 gold:
3. This house is a bit more expensive, 15 000 gold, with two floors:
4. The most expensive house, 20 000 gold:
It’s got two floors and is pretty roomy inside:
Aeternum is an eternal island of legend, a place of unimaginable beauty and growing evil, where the forces of death and life are in constant conflict.
The human settlements on Aeternum are often ambitious enterprises, but they can also be places where people are barely eking out an existence despite horrific existential threats lurking just through the trees.
