Grovel places you in a kneeling posture. Like all changes in posture, groveling will very likely cause your attributes to vary, particularly including dexterity and armor.

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

Unlike certain other social commands, Grovel cannot be parameterized.
