One of my favorite aspects of EQ2 is the player housing, but I had a question.
Are there any house "items" or "pets" that look like living NPCS?
Best case would be they walk around in the same way that other pets do. Worst case I'd be happy with them just sitting (Standing?) there. I've found there are plenty of pets avaialable, and I think some of the chrono-mentoring quests I can do will let me have some "monstrous" NPCs in my house. But really I just want a plain ole Human, Dwarf, Barbarian, etc. that I can place in the house so I can have a "family" or something like that.
I've also heard I could get some dummies and put clothes on them, but I think I'd end up feeling like some creepy "Hills Have Eyes" or Fallout 3 guy where I have a bunch of dummies as friends.
Besides not wanting to be forever alone (as the meme goes), I had an idea to use one of the larger Halas homes as a base for a "Ski Resort" - turn the side room into a "bar", make the upstairs into Inn rooms, etc. But it would be kinda lonely to wander around as the only humanoid in the house.
I know we have some humans for the Guilds we can add and just those would be perfect, but as far as I can tell, I can't buy those for my personal house.
If I have to, I'll just pull out some of my pets and scale them larger.
