Players can purchase their own castle and/or storage rooms within that castle.  The player is free to build the castle with the layout, room names, descriptions, extra descriptions that they choose.  The storage room can hold all the treasures from their adventures.  A new command 'rstorage' or remote storage, allows a player with a storage room to deposit and withdraw items from their storage from anywhere in the game!

One of Aethar's defining features intensifies combat even further.  Imagine building a duo of characters, gearing them both and heading into combat as a cohesive team!  You can use these two characters to compliment each other and tackle larger harder mobs, at the cost of having to manage them both in an already intensive battle situation.  It's something that seperates the good players from the best!
