In 4D, you can date, get engaged, get married and divorced, get pregnant and have a baby, and eventually form dynasties.
The basis for all this is the Romance code and the commands and procedure are explained below.
The status you are in will show in your score command, and other players will see if you are dating/engaged/married/pregnant when they look at you.
You need to be in the same room as the other person both to start and end a relation.
To get married you have to go through the entire routine of dating and getting engaged first. You don't however need to be married to conceive and have a baby (just as in Real Life...).
Below is a list of the "romance" commands available for mortals:
* DATING A PLAYER
* GETTING ENGAGED
* GETTING MARRIED
You need the help of a senior imm to get married in 4D, and it also costs one gold token, because the wedding rings are very expensive. (They are however also very neat items. The ring will teleport you to your partner when you remove it, wherever he/she is, provided he/she is on line).
* GETTING DIVORCED
For this you also need the help of a senior imm, but there is no charge for it.
* HAVING A BABY
(Only female players can seduce. This is the woman's choice. It takes quite
some time from the time you conceive until the baby actually is born, and during that time your moves will be negatively affected too. In case you decide that you want an abortion instead, you'll need an imp to help you with this.)
* RAISING YOUR BABY
After the pregnancy period a stork will deliver your baby. If you want a more 'personal' appearance on your kid, there is the possibility to buy a description and some scripts for the baby. You can also later have it exchanged for a toddler mob, who can follow you around on your travels.
Finally players can ask someone else to create a char to roleplay their child.
There is a Daycare in 4D, in which you can leave your annoying little brats, if you want them to be reasonably safe while you are out hunting. More about this under Travel Agency.
* A tip:
Molly will always be happy to break up or divorce you. but to get married you'd better seek the aid of a RP imm. Another tip:
If you break up a relation, it will leave the other party still in the engaged state. To get out of it they have to seek the aid of a senior imm. This is also the case if you want to break up a relation with someone who rarely or never logs on anymore. Yet another tip:
Traditionally all firstborn female babies in 4D should be sacrificed to Molly. It is possible to cheat her out of her due, but only at the expense of invoking her wrath. (And yes, I am just kidding... maybe...)
