Section: Using Commands Outside The Library
The commands like "[you]", "[the $]", etc. may be used outside of the
library messages with some care. The current object may need to be
set with "[=> ...]" several times during a paragraph. For example:
say "[=> nasty creature][The $] glar[e-s] at [you dobj].
[You] stumbl[e-s] backwards towards the cliff edge,
almost losing [your] footing.
[=> nasty creature][He] start[-s] to advance towards [you dobj]."
Depending on what the "nasty creature" is and the tense/person/number/gender
settings, the above command may produce something like the following:
The wolves glared at me. I stumbled backwards towards the cliff edge, almost losing my footing. They started to advance towards me.

say "[% => nasty creature][You] [can] [see*] [the % dobj] crouching among the rocks. "
