2. This condemning system has been in play for
years, although where once it was just houses on the same
shard affecting each other, in 2001 it changed to houses

shards or all on the same shard, are allowed to maintain
these houses, but they will need to be refreshed manually.
These players have the option of declaring one of their
houses as their primary house, which condemns all others
owned by the same account.
