SYNTAX EXAMPLES
1. brandish <thing> 1. brandish knife
2. brandish <thing> <target> 2. brandish knife guard

USE:

  1. Use form one to brandish an Item you're currently wielding or holding.
  2. Use form two to brandish your Item at a target in the Room.

Brandish searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the Item you're wielding, then the one you're holding. So, if you're wielding and holding knives, the command "brandish knife" will refer to the one wielded, not held.

Unlike certain other social commands, Brandish cannot be parameterized.
