One of the best things about KidMud is that you can make things. The only limit is your imagination! An elf I know created a bow and arrow to carry with her. Wizard seems to always have a mug of coffee with him. If you can think it up, you can make it on KidMud.
@create $thing called whatever
A $thing is the basic object in KidMud. When you create a $thing, you can carry it around, give it to people, put it on a table...whatever you would do with a real 'thing' in the real world. When you are carrying a $thing, people will see it when they look at you. Instead of whatever, put in the name of what you want to make.
@create $thing called wand
This creates a wand. You will see:
You now have wand with object number #473 and parent generic thing (#5).
Next, describe your new object:
@describe wand as "You see an ornately carved wand, made of a mysterious dark wood. It seems to shimmer."
Now, when people look at you, they will see that you are carrying a wand:
look wizard The Wizard is wearing a flowing blue robe peppered with stars. His pointy cap seems to be a bit lop-sided. He is awake and looks alert. Carrying: a wand
You can put the thing onto a table (put), drop it on the ground (drop), pick it up (get) or give it to someone (give):
put wand on table You put the wand on the kitchen table. get wand from table You remove wand from kitchen table. drop wand You drop the wand. get wand You take the wand. give wand to toby You give the wand to Toby.
If someone looks at the wand, they will see your description:
look at wand You see an ornately carved wand, made of a mysterious dark wood. It seems to shimmer.
