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

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