  • Chapter - Unreadying
    Unreadying is an action applying to one visible thing.
    Understand "unready [thing]" and "unequip [thing]" and "unwield [thing]" and "sheathe [thing]" as unreadying.
    Does the player mean unreadying a readied weapon: it is very likely.
    Check unreadying (this is the can only unready what is readied rule):
        unless the noun is a readied weapon enclosed by the actor:
            [take no time;]
            say "You are not wielding that." instead.
            
    Carry out an actor unreadying:
        now the noun is not readied;
        say "You stop wielding [the noun].";
        [let item be a random natural weapon part of the actor;
        now item is readied;]
    [
    After printing the name of a readied melee weapon while taking inventory (this is the readied inventory listing rule):
        say " (readied melee weapon)".
        
    After printing the name of a readied ranged weapon while taking inventory:
        say " (readied ranged weapon)".
        
    After printing the name of a melee weapon that is not readied:
        say " (melee weapon)".
        
    After printing the plural name of a melee weapon that is not readied:
        say " (melee weapon)".
        
    After printing the name of a ranged weapon that is not readied:
        say " (ranged weapon)".
    After printing the plural name of a ranged weapon that is not readied:
        say " (ranged weapon)".
