USE:

  1. Use form one to do an acrobatic air-lean against nothing in particular.
  2. Use form two when there's no possible ambiguity. In the example, there's only one statue present.
  3. Use form three when there are many instances of <thing> present, and you want to lean against one of them in particular.
  4. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.
  5. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.
  6. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.
  7. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.
  8. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.

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

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