(aggressive throwing)

Syntax:throw [direction] [at] <victim>
throw <object> [direction] [at] <victim>

The throw command is used to throw throwable weapons or other ojbects at a foe. If you wish to toss something non-violently, use the "toss" command.

In order to successfully throw a weapon at a foe, you must have the throwable weapon wielded and you must be adept at the corresponding throwing skill for that weapon. For example, if you wish to throw a dagger, knowledge in the "dagger throwing" skill would be essential.

If you wish to throw a non-weapon at a foe, like a vial, grenade, or a boulder, you should use the second syntax for the command. While proficiency in the toss skill is not required to throw an item, it does help your chances of hitting your target.

The tytan race has developed the ability to perform a mystical incantation to shrink their bodies down to a smaller form. Using the 'shrink' command, they can shrink themselves allowing a more free movement around the world. The ability is limited and the small tytan can stay shrunk only for a short period of time. The higher level tytan may stay shrunk indefinitely, using the 'regrow' command when they want to return to their normal size, but they may find that if they remain shrunk his/her body may begin to suffer.

Tytans are warned to be careful when moving around while shrunk, for if you are in a small room when your shrink wears off you may find yourself stuck there!
