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