@describe is a command to set the description of an object, which others see when they look at the object. Giving all your things, rooms, and exits good descriptions is considered to be good building practice.

Usage

Syntax: @describe object = description
Syntax: @desc object = description
Attribute: Desc

Function references and %-substitutions are allowed in descriptions, and are evaluated when someone looks at the object. In function references, 'me' refers to the object being looked at, while %-substitutions that refer to the enactor (such as %n, %#, %p, etc) refer to the looker.

Examples

  • <object> @desc vase = You see a delicate Ming vase.
  • <exit> @desc elevator = There is an elevator to the east.
