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

When you give an item, it goes directly to the inventory of the character you're giving it to.

Not every item is necessarily giveable. Also, you may be unable to Give an item due to many possible constraints: not enough energy; paralysis; blindness; etc. The character you want to give it to might be unable to receive it, for similar reasons. As with all commands, the Game Channel will record the outcome of your action.

Many NPCs will accept items which you Give them. But, many won't.

Because the command is enabled for "natural language" parsing, you can use all kinds of variations and still be understood. "Give poobah the blue diamond", "give the blue diamond to poobah", "give poobah the fourth diamond", "give the 4th diamond to poobah", "give the 4th diamond to the twelfth guard", and many others will all do fine.
