Discworld player help



show - Show an item to a player or npc.


show <item> to <living>
show accept [offer] [from] <living>
show reject [offer] [from] <living>


With the show command, you can allow someone to inspect an item in your inventory closely, without having to give it directly to him, and risk losing it.

You offer an item to a player who is in the same room and is able to see you. If the player wants to take a look at the item, he accepts the offer, otherwise he can ignore or reject it. If an offer is rejected, it will have a negative effect on any pandering to a deluded item that is being attempted.

You can simultaneously have an offer to more than one person, but you can only have one offer per person at a time. If you try to show a person something, and there is already an offer by you pending to that person, the older one is removed and replaced by the newer offer.


> show quill to gruper
You offer the quill to Gruper for inspection.

[Gruper would see:]
Tape offers you a quill for inspection. Use
"show accept offer from <living>" to view it.

> show accept offer from tape

You accept Tape's offer.
Tape shows a quill to you.

This is a nice, long, feathery quill. You could "write" on things with it.
You could probably even "copy" writing that you find.
It is in excellent condition.
