The MEASURE command is used to measure the dimensions of an object you are holding. Attempting to estimate the dimensions without a tool requires and teaches Appraisal skill. Measuring with a yardstick is always accurate.
Measuring an open container will measure its internal dimensions and carrying capacity. Note that a container's exterior dimensions change as it is filled up, based on the elasticity of the material.
The MEASURE command is also used in the Tailoring discipline.
Unit of Measurement
Elanthia uses a unit of measurement called the span (think "handspan").
|9 spans||1 yard|
|3 spans||1 foot|
|1 span||4 inches|
Note that the game does track measurements in units smaller than spans, but display rounds to span.
- MEASURE <item>
- MEASURE <item> WITH <measuring tool>
