2.7 Things in Achaea and how to handle them

You will frequently want to deal with items and with denizens (Mobs/NPCs) in
Achaea. The most important commands, all covered below, are: INFO HERE,

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 denizen, 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>.

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>.

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 denizen,
along with its description and whatever it is holding, if anything.

GIVE <howmany> <thing> TO <whomever>
Give an item or items to someone (adventurer or denizen). 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.
