The Nice House On The Lake Can Get You Anything – Almost

The most recent issue of The Nice House Of The Lake revealed some more of the rules, how the inhabitants of the Nice House would continue to get stuff, ordering whatever they want (that does not immediately threaten their life) through a notepad that they can leave in their rooms.
