13.9.1 The TARGET command.

(This helpfile covers the TARGET command, for setting your attack target, see

Syntax: TARGET <head/torso/left arm/right arm/left leg/right leg/nothing>.

With this ability, you will be able to target specific body parts on your
opponent. Because this requires more precise timing on your part, the sheer
damage you can do is reduced. However, by battering these body parts with
either edged or blunt weapons, you can cause damage to them that is more
difficult to cure than simple broken bones. For instance, a limb may be able to
be beaten into uselessness, which requires a restoration salve to fix (and
which does not get fixed immediately).  Attacks to the torso will produce
internal bleeding, while attacks to the head will produce a concussion. TARGET
NOTHING will turn targetting off.
