23 THE CANDY HOUSE. This two story house is made entirely out of candies and desserts. The walls and roof being principally made of gingerbread with sugar icing as cement. Embellishments are many and include peppermint sticks and gumdrops. Windows are plentiful and made of spun sugar, being translucent but not transparent. The back of the house directly touches the cliff face that makes up the edge of The Grounds.

The house is edible, but it is also magical. It regenerates roughly as quickly as it is eaten. Anyone who consumes any part of the house must save vs spells or lose 1 point of wisdom per meal. These are recovered at the rate of 1 per day. Ordinary animals, including insects and vermin of all kinds, will refuse to eat the stuff. The walls, floors, and ceilings can be broken if sufficient violence is applied (DM's decision) and entry made into the house or between rooms that way, though the broken parts regenerate as described above within a round.

The candy house holds an evil witch known as the Candy Crone and her servants, the sugar goblins. The witch favors the flesh of human children, which is in short supply in The Grounds, so she makes do mostly with captured gangster halflings and tree gnomes.
