LOCATE


Syntax      : cast 'locate' [<key>] [<max distance>]
Type        : Long range
Accumulative: N/A
Duration    : No
Casting     : Very long
Position    : Standing
Level       : Level 6 
Class       : Magic User
Min. Mana   : 20

NOTE: <max distance> is given in miles.

NOTE: In order to use this spell you must first find out the magical key of the object, mobile, or room you are attempting to locate.
(In the example the magical key is the "zordurhozo" part).

The keys for objects, mobiles, and players can be obtained with the IDENTIFY spell.

NOTE: If you cast the LOCATE spell with no arguments, you will get the magical key of the room you stand in. This key is needed when using the TELEPORT, PORTAL, SCRY and WATCH ROOM spells.

A comparison between 'LOCATE LIFE' and 'LOCATE' (for locating mobiles):

LOCATE LIFE:
needs: name of creature
gives: nearby locations of the creature, and their teleport keys

LOCATE:
needs: magical key of creature
gives: graphical representation of those locations in relation to you (but no detailed information or teleport keys)

Example:

  > cast 'locate' zordurhozo
