SYNTAX

look OBJECT [NUMBER]
look OBJECT [NUMBER] on ground
look my OBJECT [NUMBER]
look at OBJECT [NUMBER] on ENTITY

DESCRIPTION

If no OBJECT is specified this will show you the room you're in, otherwise it will return OBJECT's long description.

To identify several similar objects you may append NUMBER to an object, e.g. <look at my sack 2> will display description of second sack in your inventory.

If you specify keyword “my” you'll look only at objects in your inventory, e.g. <look at my sack> will display description of sack in your inventory.

If you append suffix “on ground” you'll look only at objects on the ground.

You can look at OBJECTs on people and NPCs by specifying ENTITY that possesses the OBJECT, e.g. <look at sword on attacker> will display description of your attacker's sword.

Looking will notify everyone you're visible for about your action. To avoid this you might want to use <glance>.

There is a special object named sky you can look at and see various effects, depending on where an when you are.
