13.2 Creating & Editing Kinships
13.0 Kinships 13.2 Creating & Editing Kinships

To create a kinship, click the green "New Kinship" button in the upper right of the main kinship screen. To edit a kinship, click the green "Edit" button on the kinship cards of the main screen, or the "Edit Kinship" button in the upper right of any kinship profile.

First give your kinship a Name. Next, find a toggle labeled "Keep Ranking Members Private?". If this is set to "Yes", it will hide the Ranking Members tab unless you are a GM, KinshipKeeper, or ranking member of the kinship. This is useful if you want to keep ranking members private outside of the kinship.

In the next section, you can set a Kinship Owner. This must be a character that is assigned to a player, because it gives them access and permissions to edit the kinship settings, wealth, and cache. The owner will automatically be assigned a master rank within the kinship.

If you are a Game Master, you will see the next section which allows you to select a Folder for the kinship or mark it Secret. If marked secret, the kinship will be hidden from your players.

The next few inputs can be used as needed, depending on what kind of data you want to track. The Type field is useful if you are using kinships for multiple kinds of groups, and need to differentiate them at a glance. The Location field can be used to mark a country or city in your game where the kinship resides.

Use the Description box to type out a full description of your kinship, while Notes can be used for extra information or notes from the party's interaction or knowledge of the kinship.

Kinship Stats

If you have Kinship Stats set up, you will see panels here to click and expand, allowing you to enter in data for the kinship.

Game Masters

The final text editor is only visible to GM's and can be used to keep secret notes from your players.

Select an Image

Upload or select an image to represent your kinship. This is generally some sort of family emblem, guild badge, religious symbol, etc. If you are on our Knight, Monarch, or Deity tiers, you have access to our Image Library. We have a good selection of kinship badge images to choose from to make your kinship look amazing! You are also welcome to upload your own.

Deleting a Kinship

Delete a kinship from the kinship edit form. At the bottom left of the form you will see a red button labeled "Delete Kinship". All connections between this kinship and your characters will be destroyed. This cannot be undone.
