Code: [Select]
A coin of black-painted soapstone lies here.

>Flip soapstone
You flip a black-painted soapstone coin and it comes up: a smiling face.

>Flip soapstone
You flip a black-painted soapstone coin and it comes up: many small bubbles.

Those coins you can flip from your inventory. White ones too.

Obsidian coins you can flip if they're in the room.

If you get a single obsidian coin it acts really weirdly. You can drop it in the room and flip it, yes, but you can't hold it or target it very effectively.
Do you kill your sparring partners once they are useless to you, so that you are king?

That's because DIKU was actually created by satan to frustrate roleplayers.

shove a tablet into the mouth of someone who is sleeping/paralyzed/subdued.
  -The victim is unconscious (small chance they will choke and spit it up)
  -The victim is paralyzed (small chance they will choke and spit it up)
  -The victim is subdued (chance to resist)

This made me so, so giddy.
A staff member sends you:
"Normally we don't see a <redacted> walk into a room full of <redacted> and start indiscriminately killing."

You send to staff:
"Welcome to Armageddon."

I just want to point out that the new bit of code is for vials, not tablets. You still can't shove a tablet into someone's mouth; using a vial is the way to go.
Character: "I've been working on building a new barracks for some tim-"
NPC: "Yeah, that fell through, sucks but YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIREEE!! FIRE-KANKS!!

Can there be a nosave for subdued vial application?  Or can nosave subdue be modified to include not resisting something forced down your throat?

Saves from subdue... drink this or die... resist... um... shit.

If you don't want to resist it...just have them hand it to you and drink it yourself?  :P

Well, you can TRY, but it's unlikely you'll pass your check on a giant spider...

I don't think you can if you are currently subdued.  I might be wrong.

Why would they have you subdued if you willingly wanted to drink something?

Um, they wouldn't?

Gal A and Gal B accost Fella C.

Gal A Subdues Fella C.

Gal B says, "Now.  You're gonna drink this or my friend there kills ya."

Sure, Gal A could release the subdual, then Gal B could give the vial to Fella C, and Fella C could drink it after which Gal A subdue Fella C again... or...

Gal B pours vial Fella C.

Was there a trick to get an object to revert back to its database ldesc with 'arrange'?

If you 'get object' then 'drop object' it will, but some objects are too heavy to get.

Is there away to return a fixed object to its default ldesc, apart from remembering to copy it before you change it?

Hammer-code approach.

Arrange object .  <- extra period

will result in

Object showing its default description . <- extra period is extra

Copy-Paste "showing its default description" portion
and
Arrange object ~ showing its default description <- no extra period

will result in

Object showing its default description.

Where reason fails, force prevails.

Things you can do with tents:

Code: [Select]
> shake tent
You shake the tent.

Code: [Select]
> break tent
You quickly destroy a small, white tent.

(See HELP TENT for 'make tent' and 'roll tent' as well.)

I don't know if it works while people are inside it -- I'd hope not!

I discovered it while thinking "I'll break camp."  Then: break tent.  Oh fuck.
