USE:

  1. Use form one when there's no possible ambiguity. In the example, you're only carrying one box in your inventory.
  2. Use form two or three when more information is needed to interpret the command - that is, there's more than one possible item by the same name to which the command could be applied. In the example, you're carrying a green shirt, a cotton shirt, etc.
  3. Use form two or three when more information is needed to interpret the command - that is, there's more than one possible item by the same name to which the command could be applied. In the example, you're carrying a green shirt, a cotton shirt, etc.
  4. Use form four when there are many instances of <thing> in your inventory.
  5. Use form five when you want to drop everything in your inventory. Note the Drop All command does NOT drop your money.

Note that items must be currently in your inventory to be dropable. If you're wearing something, you have to Remove it before you can drop it.

When you drop an item, it falls directly to the floor of the room you're in, where it can be picked up by other Characters. There's no restriction on picking up items you've dropped yourself; you can drop and pick up an item as many times as you like.

There are alternatives to dropping an item on the floor when you don't want it any more. You can Give it to another character; you can Recycle or Trash it; or you can Donate it for other characters to use. See these commands for details.

Not every item is necessarily dropable. You may find you're unable to drop some particular thing. As with all commands, the Game Channel will record the outcome of your action.

Because the command is enabled for "natural language" parsing, you can use all kinds of variations and still be understood. "Drop the diamond ring", "drop my third ring", "drop the 3rd ring", "drop 3.ring" and many others will all do fine.
