# Families

Your family gives you a last name, however they give you no extra commands, and no extra abilities.

You can belong to a family by having a relationship with someone who is already in the family, or by creating your own family.

## Family control room

You can register a family at the family control room in the service areas across the Disc.

Discworld's usual naming, language and harassment rules apply to family names, and your money may not be returned if the name is deemed inappropriate.

## Cost

A quarter of a Discworld year = 60 Roundworld days. See Time and Calendar.

The costs are the same in the various currency.

You read the small sign:
Families have a few rules and regulations associated with them.  They cost LSov 5|9|5|4 to start and cost LSov 5|9|5|4 in upkeep every quarter of a Discworld year, plus Ls 1|4 1/2 per member.

You can create relationships between people, and also create families.  It is possible to list families, or details about any particular family.  On a family of yours, you can set the description, see its bank balance and deposit more money into its account.  If your family balance is less than the required amount when it is time for your family to pay for its fees, the family will be disbanded.

You cannot choose a family name from the books for your families.


## Relationship

Anyone in a family can invite another person into the family. The command 'relationship' is used to setup new relationships with someone else (and invite them into your family).

You can swap families, but not leave a family, once you have a family name.

## Top Family Table

Usually the family control room will also have a top family table, listing the families with most of the below:

You read the top family table:

The most members          : Womblesworth
