    For 30 days after the lottery, only the deed holder will be able to place in that lot. After the 30 days are up, it's a free-for-all. Also, after the deed is used, the lot reverts to normal placement rules, so if a house placed on the lot ever falls then the lot is up for grabs.

    This is true.

    The deed is a "bearer instrument". All it does is grant the holder the right to place a house on a particular plot of land on the specified facet of the specified shard. The deed is blessed but can be traded. Once a house is placed, the deed "expires" and the lot of land is no longer under the requirement that someone hold the deed in order to place a house.

    The lottery and the exclusive right to build a house is a one-shot deal. Once it's done, the land and any houses on it act like any other land with houses on it. For the actual houses, no rules are different for these plots. They can be demolished, resized, traded, or whatever.
