Difference between revisions of "Claim"
(I felt there's lot of "need-to-know" information that applies to both claims so that page like this that appears when new player types "claim" into search they get access to it.)

"Claims" protect objects from decay, prevent players (often referred to as "Hearthlings") without Theft from stealing your objects and items, and without Vandalism from performing actions such as digging, destroying, building, setting down piles, etc.
Types of claims
Personal Claim is owned and maintained by a single player (who has ability to give other players access if they wish.)
Village Claim helps facilitate maintaining and managing usually a much larger area that is usually owned by a group of players.
Any character that walks through a visitor gate (as indicated by the red flags) on a village claim (or personal claim), unless they are a member/owner, receives the Visitor buff. Characters with this buff are unable to perform Criminal Acts, even with the toggle switched on. Essentially this means the visitor gates of walled claims can be left open to anyone to show off your beautifully cultivated lands without having to worry about Theft, Vandalism, Battery or Murder. Assuming the entire are inside walls has been claimed as walking off the claim removes the Visitor buff.
