Mine was the characters' home base and came complete with a butler who could
get them almost anything (Character: "We need 50 kilos of dynamite."  Jones:
"Very good, sir."  Dynamite is delivered on a silver salver).  I drew the
line when they asked for an atomic bomb. :-)  The house was very good about
delivering a character to (a) where he wanted to be or (b) where the house
thought she needed to be whenever someone walked through a door.  Burlgars
and other intruders, however, found themselves unable to leave whatever room
they'd got into and starved to death.
