2.4 Objects and interacting with them

You will frequently need to want to interact with items and with mobiles
(NPCs) in Aetolia. The most important commands, all covered below, are:
INFO HERE, LOOK/EXAMINE, GET, DROP, PROBE, GIVE, PUT, and THROW.


INFO HERE   (IH for short)
---------
This command will show you a list of what items are in the room, along  
with their numbers. Whenever you interact with an item or a mobile, you 
can either refer to it by name, such as 'orc', or by number, such as    
'173', or by a combination of both, such as 'orc173'.


LOOK/EXAMINE <thing>
LOOK <person> <piece of clothing>
---------------------------------
This will show you a description of whatever thing you name.


GET [amount] <thing>
GET [amount] <thing> FROM <container>
-------------------------------------
This will pick things up from off the ground. You cannot pick up most   
living things. In order to get an item that is in another item, such as 
a backpack, you would type GET [amount] <thing> FROM <container>. If you
wish to get one of an item, omit the [amount]. You cannot pick up more  
than 50 items at a time.                                                


DROP [amount] <thing>
---------------------
Drop anything you are holding onto the ground. If you wish to only drop 
one of something, you may omit [amount].                                


PROBE <thing>    (or P <thing> for short)
LOOK IN <thing>
---------------
This command will show you a variety of information about an item or    
mobile, along with its description. To see what it is holding, you must 
LOOK IN <thing>.                                                        


GIVE [amount] <thing> TO <whomever>
-----------------------------------
Give an item or items to someone (player or mobile). To give one item,  
omit the [amount].                                                      


PUT [amount] <thing> IN <container>
-----------------------------------
This allows you to put items inside another item that is capable of
holding items, such as a backpack. To put one item, omit the [amount].


THROW <thing>
-------------
This is a little more complicated. See: HELP THROWING.


WIELD <thing>
WIELD LEFT/RIGHT <thing>
UNWIELD <thing>
UNWIELD LEFT/RIGHT
------------------------
These commands allow you to wield an item and unwield an item.


TOUCH <object>
PUSH <object> 
PULL <object>
TURN <object>
TWIST <object>
USE <object>
--------------
Some items can be interacted with using these commands, which may give hints to puzzles or quests, or simply enable an effect of the item.
