required. A household is, in the simplest definition, simply a bunch of
people who like to do stuff together. Sometimes there is a focus to it, or a
common tendency; for instance, my household is a service household, and we
are heavy on cooks, brewers, and chirurgeons as well as bards. Sometimes
it's just people who like to camp or hang out as a group.
Second, don't get in a rush to join one. Get to know the various ones in
your area, find out what they do and how they do things, and if one looks
interesting, ask if you can hang out with them for a while without joining,
to get to know them and see if you really do want to join. People have found
themselves in very uncomfortable situations by rushing to join a household
and then finding out that they don't get along with the people in it.
As you spend more time in your kingdom, you will start to hear about various
households and meet people who are in households and get to know them.
