Fashionscape:

I'll begin with stating that Runescape has offered so much already to allow us to customize and make the gameo ur own. That's why the majority of the player base sticks with Runescape, because of how well the staff cares for their community.

With that said, I believe there are a couple more exciting items, choices, decisions that should be available to a player base who really enjoys their POH, Player owned ports and POF.

There only one topic though as of now I'd like to cover, and that is, our POH: Player owned Houses

Construction Refurbishment:

As of now we have a variety of options to choose from when redecorating our houses including and up to the lighting.

But aside from this, it also feels a little barring. Not limited to just redecoration, but to furnishing of each room and sometimes the difference can be a bit odd when reviewing your POH rooms and how odd certain things look.

I suggest a couple new Ideas to put a spark back into construction, more house parties, and just a more inverse style to how we customize our home.

Redecorating and furniture styles:

As comes with redecorating comes a fee to pay for the changes.

Now the locations are great, it gives players a wide variety of where to place their homes, it's definitely nice and see no needed changes to these.

This next part will appeal to those who are god fanatics and those who enjoy themed housing and styles from very subtle to extreme home-fashion.

With the emissaries, we are allowed to choose who we follow. a lovely sentiment and we all have our preferences.

I recommend adding redecorating options including exclusive furnishings to the walls and interiors/Grounds/Dungeons/Lighting.

All of which possibly excluding lighting, though this could be thought over later off i.e. for guthix theme it could give off a more nature feeling a bit foggy with butterflies and a greenish dark blue sky.

Here is a list of Ideas for themes we might all enjoy.

God/s theme/s: Saradomin, Zamorak, Guthix, Bandos, Armadyl, Zaros, Seren, and Sliske, Desert pantheon, and Elder pantheon.

Skilling Themes: The main skill idea for this would include Dungeoneering, maybe invention, Runecrafting, divination, slayer, etc... Those skills that could have a major effect on House decoration.

City and Misc.: This would include a Questers theme, and a style or theme for each city of geilinor. Including morytania etc... One mention would be Tzhaar city lava style and theme.

All of these would be exciting to be able to choose from as it would give more of a personal feeling to our homes. Of course this is all speculation and the scope of this idea could range.

Furniture and new items for building hotspots:


Along with all these themes, Dependent on the theme of course there could be added furniture to style after the gods and skills etc. that way the theme and as of currently doesn't feel awkward, when having say a lava themed menagerie and then a nice foresty look to the rest of the house and fancy stone walls hah.

These small integrations will make it feel more personalized when finally decorating the POH and making it our own without that barring feeling that we have no control as to what our furniture looks like considering a styled theme we want to go after.

One final note: In consideration to themes, Each may have a requirement, such as completing emissary tasks, and having a certain skill level.

All in all, give your support, no negative comments, but other ideas and suggestions are welcomed.

Sounds awesome! The house looks pretty outdated anyway as it is now...

I want to live in a house similar to the houses in Taverley 'built' (more grown actually) with trees.

I agree. and that could also fit in with more of a guthix style like noted above, this is a great idea. Taverly is a nice place, and is sort of most of our peoples roots to the game.

I like the idea of more home decorating customizations and the suggestions you make would be wonderful additions to the POH experience.

I personally think the most important motivation here is to make POHs more engaging - in a way that attracts people to gather at a player's home. One way to do that is to have activities in the POH that requires teamwork and rewards XP. Maybe it's something like working together to paint or decorate the house, which could make the home look better with the suggestions in OP. Maybe it's working on arts and crafts. Or gardening. Hunting for animals in the backyard. Etc.

This is a good area for innovation - today most POH gatherings are for Prayer training.

I was going to mention a team effort but they have clan citadels for that. I was also going to mention maybe something involving POH gatherings that could involve more activites that award say a daily, weekly, or monthly xp reward based upon what was done. a POH could allow another player to attend a garden and the higher level the plants being tended to the better xp for farming or herblore. boxing ring would allow for combat xp. and other things such as woodcutting, or fishing, firemaking, how about a thieving room. and the wait for a month or a week would eliminate any thought of this idea ruining regular skill training methods meaning a player wouldn't be spending all day at a poh only for a monthly or weekly reward. that way regular methods dont become obsolete training methods. Though the scope of this would be a bit higher imo.

^ Sounds fine too!

I would love to be able to paint my walls! Would give dyes a new purpose as I believe they aren't used much now.

Very true. tbh I think it'd be aweosme to have a sliske, or zammy themed house with a daemonheim dungeon.

I like it! The ability to have wall tapestries would be an easy and welcome addition to spice up POH where a lot of the rooms end up looking pretty bare because there are only 3-4 spots on the floor for any structures/features and then 2 windows + 1 doorway for any wall. Bookcases get repetitive and those drawers you can place are comically small.
