Achaea Help Files
Achaea has hundreds of help files to you learn about Achaea. This is a copy of the in-game help file structure. HELP in-game will show you this same menu.
The reason such a seemingly-trivial item gets its own helpfile is that buckets have an important historical place in Achaea. In times past, the Church erected Shrines about the land, and there was much war because of it, with each side using endless buckets of blood to sanctify or defile shrines, as they chose. Now, buckets are used for mundane purposes - helping to bring water to raging fires in order to douse them, for example. The syntax for dousing (with a full bucket of water in hand) is as follows: DOUSE ROOM|GROUND - to put out the fire in a room DOUSE SAIL[S] - to put out the fire on your sails DOUSE <person> - to put out the fire on <person> Alternatively, buckets of water can be used to clean graffiti: SCRUB WALLS - get rid of that pesky graffiti In addition to these uses, buckets can also act as containers: PUT <thing> IN BUCKET - to put something in GET <thing> FROM BUCKET - to take something out!
