Discworld command help



probe - Probe an object to determine what kind of lock it has and if it's trapped.


probe <object>


With this command you will be able to determine how difficult it will be to pick a lock or crack a safe. It will cost you 20 guild points. It uses the skill and covert.items.traps to determine your success.


> probe east
You start to study the east door.

You think this job looks as though it will be easy and that you will
need a set of lockpicks. Hidden inside the lock is a small ampule
which, if touched by an unwary tool would trigger a puff of poisonous
gas. It looks as though the trap will be very easy to avoid.
