As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Concerned searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "concerned box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "concerned 2.box" for the latter.

Concerned can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Concerned does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Concerned displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "concerned urgently", "concerned mightily", and so on. You can also "concerned 18373649" or "concerned toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
