Mechanics Overview: Hubs

So you've recruited this army of companions, but you can only take 3 with you. How do you switch party members? Where do you hang with your bros?

You arrive with three of your chosen party members in a new city. You want to settle down for a bit before continue with your quest. Maybe prepare for the next adventure, switch party members around.

This is where housing comes in. It’s a player owned house where he can chill with his companions, talk to them, or just rest. Upon exiting the player can choose 3 companions to be in his party.

How does a player get his own house? There is a house for sale in every major city. From a mansion to a small hut.

“It was all fine and good until you mentioned there will be money involved.”

There will other ways of obtaining a house. Maybe the player completes a quest or just stumbles upon an abandoned building.

Then again this is just a proposal. I think it’s the best way to do hubs, considering how spread out the world is.

Since the idea is to purchase these hubs like homes, why not make two or three hubs available in a given place, with more expensive ones offering better features? Like skill trainers or shopkeeps or discount healing.

I like the idea. I was originally thinking the player should just hire merchants and trainers respectively. I was mostly focusing on party selection, but there is a place for a lot features with housing.

People mentioned the idea of making a central hub like a ship.

And then we mentioned making the story linear up to a certain point where all the villains become available and the game becomes open-ended.

Well, how about keeping a small party during this small "prologue" with access to all of them on the fly, or a simple encampment, and then, when you get aship, recruitment becomes more open and the ship serves a a hub for your increasingly large party?

I don't like the airship idea. I don't think there should be a central hub.
