"flip" is a command useful for certain things as well. Not a lot though that I've noticed, but your mileage may vary.

Fixed.

"Use," can be quite fun when such things are held in your hand.

Does ARM have something akin to SOI's dmote, now? I've noticed a lot of temporary strings attached to descriptions, and I'm not sure if this is a recent change, or what. (And if ARM does have it, it'd be totally relevant to this thread because it'd be both neat and little.)

> look dude's cloak

Being able to look at the mdesc of other peoples equipment is very entertaining. In downtimes I found myself just reading what every little eq looks like on the people I'm around, it's a great time filler during idle moments!
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."

Perhaps more importantly, it doesn't echo. If you're in a bar with a bunch of people and you want to know who's obviously clanned, but you don't want to spam everyone with you looking at each and every person, you can just look at everyone's cloaks, rings and tabards.

Hey. That's a good idea.
Now you're looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.

Oh, I was lookin' for this thread.

RogueGunslinger, heed my words!  A trick I use to avoid buying the wrong thing: always use "offer," even if you lack the haggle skill, for a price slightly less than the list price.  I believe you get a message like this:
  The tall, muscular salesman insists on keeping the price the same for a pair of silt-horror swim goggles.

Then use "barter" to complete the transaction.
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Certain bars that load with a mix of barstools and places to stand might have invisible barstools you can 'put barstool bar' to sit down instead of stand.

Try 'key barstool' in your seatless bar, today.

You're a servant? You placed all the stuff into that tray? 'Etwo' it. First of all it's realistic; people see you holding a tray in both hands. Second, people now may 'look servant's tray'..

Damn.. It took me long time to think about 'etwo'ing trays which are too heavy to be held.
