Probably the best thing to do would be to define either a ROOM FLAG or
a SECTOR TYPE which performs the function you have in mind.  Then all you
need to do is edit your tinyworld.wld file and add the given flag/change
the sector type on the rooms you want.  The same would apply for objects 
or mobiles in which you'd have a large ammount all running the same
