I know this has been suggested in at least one other thread somewhere, but it bears repeating:
--> The ability to "place" one or two of my other characters in my houses, in the same way that I can place a pet or a mount . . .

"Nothing by which all human passion and hope and folly can be mirrored and then proved ever was just a game."
-- William Faulkner.
