The housing system in Lord of the Rings Online offers more than just a place to store items or sleep off the effects from the Inn League initiation; these houses offer a highly-customizable place to call your own with a unique trophy and decoration system, land price based on scenery and much more. First introduced with Book 11, the LotRO housing system has proven to be quite popular among players.

Then, if you choose to go further with the housing knowledge, we'll give you some links to a few excellent guides out there that we've personally hand-picked for accuracy and current information.
