CATCH There are thieves on this mud, both players and monsters who will try to steal from you. By using "catch" you can literally catch them in the act, and immediately attack them. One must be careful, however, for if the thief is of a higher level than you, he may kill you instead, and thereby gain all of your money and equipment. The main advantage of using this command is that you receive a free hunting license vs the thief when you notice their attempts. Beware, however, as the thief can attack you after this license is active and may turn into an assassin. If you wish to turn it on use 'catch on' to turn it off, use 'catch off' to see what your current state is, just type 'catch'
