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

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

Unlike certain other social commands, Kneel cannot be parameterized.
