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

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