2.7 THINGS IN LUSTERNIA AND HOW TO HANDLE THEM

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


INFO HERE <thing>   (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'. Also INFO HERE <thing>.


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


GET <howmany> <thing>
GET <howmany> <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 <howmany> <thing> FROM <container>. If you wish to get one
of an item, omit the <howmany>. You cannot pick up more than 50 items at 
a time.


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


PROBE <thing>    (or P <thing> for short)
-------------
This command will show you a variety of information about an item or mobile,
along with its description and whatever it is holding, if anything.


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


PUT <howmany> <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 <howmany>.


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