7.10 Containers

There are dozens of containers around the realm, but there are a few in particular that are important for any adventurer who hopes to keep a full supply of healing items. They can be manipulated in many ways.

VIALS
--------------------------------------------------
Vials are a must-have for both undead and mortal adventurers. Elixirs, salves and serums all go into vials. When the container is full, the vial can simply be referred to by the name of its contents (eg: II HEALTH to list the health-filled vials in your inventory). When a vial is empty, it can be referred to as EMPTY or EMPTYVIAL.

To empty a vial: 
EMPTY <contents/vial number, e.g.: EMPTY HEALTH, EMPTY 123456>

To refill a vial: 
REFILL EMPTYVIAL FROM <cask number or contents, e.g.: MENDING, cask987654>

To use... 
   - Elixirs: SIP or DRINK <HEALTH, 123456>
   - Salves: APPLY <MENDING, 123456> [TO <body part>]
   - Serums: STICK <ANALEPTIC, 123456>, requires a needle.

PIPES
--------------------------------------------------
All mortals and choice classes of vampires use pipes. They are containers designed to house herbs that can be ingested by smoking. 

To use a pipe you must:
   - PUT <herb> IN EMPTYPIPE
   - LIGHT PIPE(S), which requires a tinderbox.
   - SMOKE <herb/pipe number>

   
BANDAGES
--------------------------------------------------
Bandages are used in reanimation, which are the containers designed for poultices. 
To use a poultice you must:
   - PRESS BANDAGE or PRESS <poultice>

To clear off a bandage:
   - SCRAPE <bandage/poultice>


SYRINGE
--------------------------------------------------
A syringe is the needle-pointed contraption which stores tinctures, used in reanimation. 

To use a syringe you must:
   - FLICK SYRINGE(s), similar to lighting pipes
   - INJECT <syringe/contents>
   
To empty a syringe you must:
   - SQUIRT <syringe/contents>
