A kin list is a list of people that you have entered the Hearth Secret of. The Kin List is very similar to the Friend's List of other online games. Without someone on your Kin List, they cannot see your name when speaking to them in area chat. Rather they will see ???.
In the Kin List, you can:
- See the online status of kin signified by a un/lit candle.
- Invite online kin to a party.
- Privately message your kin.
- Set your own Hearth Secret.
