From Asheron's Call Community Wiki
Hobbies include the many activities in Asheron's Call that are not strictly related to hunting, questing and character advancement.
Barbers and Hairstyles
Main article: Barbers and Hairstyles
You can change your character's facial appearance, skin color and hairstyle at the Barbers in each of the capital towns.
In addition, Empyreans can chose to become "earthbound" (walk rather than float) and Undead and Shadow characters can choose to have the particle effects (the flaming skull or the Shadow crown) removed.
Main article: Tailoring
Tailoring allows you to take the appearance of a piece of armor or a weapon that looks good and add that appearance to another item equipped in the same place(s) with more favorable adventuring qualities. It is also possible to use armor reduction tools to reduce multi-slot items to single slot (i.e. a 3 slot amuli coat to a 1 slot coat).
Main article: Pack Dolls
Pack dolls are miniature dolls modeled after NPCs or Creatures. There are many pack dolls to choose from, some of which are very rare and sought after by player collectors. Many pack dolls are animated or animate when used and make excellent housing items.
Main article: Pets
Pets are mostly visual items modeled after ingame creatures that simply follow you around. However, some pets also cast useful cantrip spells on you that stack with other spells.

The larger houses have a large amount of hooks than the smaller housing options allowing you to decorate with many more items.
