Help Topic: Watch

Category: Observation -- This command takes balance and consciousness, and may have other physical in-character requirements.

Concealed motions, hidden items, and lies might all go unseen under normal
circumstances, but you can look out for those things. You can search an area,
watch a person, or watch a direction to see movement from afar.

watch <person>
watch <cardinal direction>
watch <exit>
watch area

Sometimes you may wish to conceal the very fact that you're watching someone,
and while they may still end up noticing you, you can at least attempt to
hide it.

Watching a cardinal direction will allow you to watch a distance into your
line of sight, but watching a specific exit (for example, the way into a
crumbling building) will only let you watch the other side of that particular

watch <person> quietly

Note: searching an area will NOT reveal hidden exits there. You will need
to read the description and look at context clues and any present objects
in order to discover mysteries of secret places.

Warning: watching gets cleared on game reload.
