You can also make you home smaller if you want. I briefly considered playing a homeless thrall in FA as a challenge game. It would be just ever so slightly less masochistic than an ironman thrall. But the way the game is structured that would deny me any recall points, so I quickly decided it would be much too tedious. Setting your home size to zero in V would, if I understand things correctly, give you a somewhat more reasonable challenge game if you didn't want to go full ironman.

So if your home has a size of zero, is it just a "Home Sweet Home" floormat in front of a brick wall?

Larn, Omega, etc. have a bank. Think of it as having your home repossessed by the bank. It's still there. You just can't use it.

Although I'm sure it's obvious, no one has mentioned yet that changing home size could (and probably should, if it's implemented) be made a birth option.

Well, the problem is that if I'm allowed a big home, I'll have a big home. And enjoy the game less as a result. I'm perfectly willing to admit that I'm in the minority, if that is indeed the case. Poll time?

I'm with you. Sure, I find it difficult to decide what to keep and what to discard, but that's part of the difficulty level of the game. Unlike game changes that have been made to relieve repetitive tedium, changing the home size directly changes game difficulty. Making hard choices is one of the things that makes the game interesting.

Glad it's not just me, then!

It has been argued (at perhaps excessive length!) that it doesn't change the difficulty of the game substantially. I take it that you disagree. Could you elaborate on why you think that? (Even if it's just to point to previous posts.)

Even if the default setting is the standard home and you have to change the settings to get the larger home?
