Brownies are magical beings that can help the player in many ways. They act mainly as NPCs.

Personal Shop Brownies

  • A Personal Shop Brownie Work-For-Hire Contract can be purchased at any bank (except those in residential areas). They are priced between 2,250g to 3,250g, depending on which bank a contract is bought from.
  • When you set up a Personal Shop, you may right-click and use the contract to have the brownie watch over your shop. The reason for using a brownie is so a player doesn't have to watch over the shop themselves or have their pet do it.
  • The contract takes up 2x2 inventory spaces and cannot be moved after the brownie is set up.
  • A player may use the same contract any number of times within a 24 hour period, real-time. This allows a player to reopen a shop in case they are disconnected or wish to close down the shop for a period of time. However, if the shop license has received any gold then it cannot be re-opened but another shop license may be bought and the same brownie contract can be used with it.
    • A shop will remain open until it is either closed by the player or the player logs out or changes channels. Even if a brownie runs out of time, the shop will remain open.
  • The contract's 24 hour time limit will start counting down the first time a brownie is set up to watch over a personal shop and will continue to do so even after a shop is closed down.
  • A Brownie cannot be removed from an open shop. If you wish to remove a Brownie yet keep your shop open, you must close the shop and re-open it (this may require the purchase of another Merchant License) without replacing the Brownie.
  • Brownies come in three colors: green, purple, and red. The color of the brownie is also shown on its contract, so a player can choose which brownie they prefer. There is no difference between different colored shopkeeper brownies except in appearance.

Marketplace Shop Brownies

  • All Marketplace Shops are managed by a purple Shop Brownie, located directly in the center of the building.
    • Shop Brownies can manage taxes and provide items that will help owners of Marketplace Shops. For more information, see Brownie Management.
  • If you own a Marketplace Shop, you may rent a red life-skill brownie for a few hours real-time.
    • More expensive brownies have higher-rank life skills, up to a max of rank 6.
    • Rank D Brownies cost 10,000G and work for 3 hours.
    • Rank 8 Brownies cost 30,000G and work for 2 hours.
    • Rank 6 Brownies cost 50,000G and work for 1 hour.
    • Note: The Marketplace Shop system conversion made it impossible to provide life-skill brownies the furniture they require to perform their jobs.

Homestead Housing Brownies

  • All Homestead Housing Houses are managed by a purple House Manager Brownie, who can be contacted from anywhere in the building.
  • Players can craft a Workshop Workbench inside of each room. Workbenches allow either a green or red brownie to complete Research Tasks.
    • Research Tasks earns Expertise points, which can be spent to empower a Homestead with Training EXP Multipliers.
      • These Multipliers are related to the Workbench's Talent and are given to every person in the player's Homestead for the buff duration.


  • In British and Scottish mythologies, Brownies are mythical household spirits that are usually dressed in brown. Sometimes depicted as elves, goblins, or fairies, they tend to linger in a house or farm and can tend to it for centuries.
  • According to the NPCs that run the banks on the Marketplace Channel, Brownies are fairies and they have only appeared in Milletian-owned homes.
