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

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