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

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