  • Apartment Sharing And Unions

    **How to share an apartment.

    You can now purchase access rings or access pendants from the government to allow a person of your choice to receive a key of your apartment. You must write me and inform me of the name of the person for whom you wish to purchase an access key.

    Each access key costs a non-refundable fee of 40,000.00 credits.
    One key only gives access to one door only. This is a non-transferable privilege. You may not share your access key with anyone.
    An access key remains the property of the government and can be remotely deactivated and the Ministry of Security is allowed to confiscate such key.

    Your access key grants you access to another person's private apartment, at their request only. Please understand that although you are carrying the key, the owner of the apartment is allowed to cancel access at any time.

    Once a cancellation is placed the key will be deactivated and eventually confiscated by the Ministry of Security.
    No refund request over access keys will be processed.

    OOC: Please be aware that you are granting access to your private apartment to another player. Theft is a possible consequence of such trust. The Ministry of Security might interfere in-character and help solve the problem. But we cannot guaranty the retrieval of all items. If you decide to share your belongings with each other, do be aware that there are risks coming with that as well. Especially in the case of separations.


    An access key comes with gemstones of the following colors:
    -black
    -blue
    -brown
    -clear
    -green
    -orange
    -pink
    -purple
    -red
    -white
    -yellow

    How to use your access key.
    You will need to locate a digital screen one the elevator panel in the apartment lobby. Then simply swipe your key over the screen. This will grant you access to the apartment that key was built for.
    ooc command: swipe my ring/pendant over digital screen
    or swipe digital screen with my ring

    You can view the location for a particular key simply by warming the gemstone briefly with a finger.
    ooc command : touch my ring's/pendant's gemstone



    ** On Unions


    A union allows two Citizens to officially be recognized as "partners". Partners is the official name used by law to refer to two united people. [ooc: so if we would use spouse for married people in RL, partner is restricted for unions so we aren't confused. But we do not use wife, husband or spouse, instead we use the term partner.]

    Each prospective partner must gather the amount of 25,000.00 credits, a total of 50,000.00 credits.
    Once each person has achieved to save up for the required amount, a union ceremony date and planning may be discussed with a qualified government official.

    These union fees are non-refundable, under any circumstances and will be charged before the ceremony takes place.

    What does the fee pay for?
    These are the things you will receive with your union package:
    -An authentic certificate stating that the two people are officially partners.
    -A ceremony package ( including food, drinks and a cake)
    -A love pendant locket for female partners, with a hologram of their partner
    -A love ring locket for male partners, with a hologram of their partner
    -A 10,000 discount on an apartment access key
