This is an informational command to list your own character's fame, as well as other information, such as level. Additionally, it may be used to reference the "fame list", a ranking of characters with the highest fame scores.

If you do not wish to be displayed on the fame list, or, if you do not with other players to see your fame score, you may use the FLAG command to turn your FAME setting off.

Usage:

FAME Displays your character's personal fame, family fame, race, profession and level.

of the specified player.

FAME <profession> <page#> Will display 20 names from the selected
page of the specified PROFESSION list.
FAME <race> <page#> Will display 20 names from the selected
page of the specified RACE list.

NOTE: Presently only 5 pages (100 names total) will be made available from any fame list due to resource considerations.

FIRE

This command is used while hunting with a crossbow or bow.

Bow (short bow, composite bow, longbow):

To fire a bow, place your bow in the left hand, one arrow in the right, and FIRE MY BOW AT <CREATURE>. Note that using short bows instead long bows will shorten the round time but the damage inflicted will not be as great. The behavior of composite bows falls somewhere in between that of short bows and long bows.

Crossbow (light crossbow, heavy crossbow):

To fire a crossbow, hold it in your left hand and type COCK CROSSBOW. Then GET a bolt, and LOAD the crossbow. You may then FIRE MY CROSSBOW AT <CREATURE>. Crossbows have a benefit of providing a +50 attack strength if the shooter is kneeling. Also note that using light crossbows instead heavy crossbows will shorten the round time, but the damage inflicted will not be as great.

 

Also see the AIM command.

See ATTACK for reference to special Voln messages which may occur when one successfully kills undead critters by AMBUSHing, ATTACKing, CASTing, FIREing, HURLing, MSTRIKEing or TRIPing)

LeftHand If the lefthand flag is set, when items are discovered they are placed in the players lefthand.
RightHand If the righthand flag is set, when items are discovered they are placed in the players righthand.
KillGroup If the killgroup flag is set, only players that are in the player's group may search and skin the creatures that the player kills.

Coins If the coin flag is set, a player will not automatically take coins found when searching a dead creature.
Fame If the fame flag is set, the player may be included on the fame lists.
Portrait If the portrait flag is set, the player may see other player's character portraits.

FORAGE

This command is used to forage and generate herbs in the wild.

Every time you forage you receive an open 1d100 roll. The result is compared to an hidden threshold, which varies according to the kind of herb you desire. You will successfully forage if you roll over the threshold AND you are in a room where the herb can be found. 

Many factors exist which can raise or lower the success threshold: (1) kneeling lowers the threshold; (2) one empty hand lowers the threshold some, two empty hands even more; (3) hand scars will raise the threshold; (4) the rangers' forage spell will lower the threshold; (5) the levels you have, the lower the threshold; (6) rangers have the lowest thresholds, wizards and sorcerers the highest; and (7) the area where you can find an herb may be less than perfect for that herb, thus raising the threshold.

Note that if your left hand is not free while foraging, the herb will be left on the ground.  Also note that while foraging produces one-bite herbs, the spell "Herb Production" appears to produce herbs with two to four bites.

Some of the herbs available in Elanthia are listed in the Herbs and Remedies Guide.
