As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Entreat 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 "entreat box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "entreat 2.box" for the latter.

Entreat 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 Entreat does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Entreat displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "entreat despairingly", "entreat earnestly", and so on. You can also "entreat 18373649" or "entreat toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
