Clothing covers your naughty bits, protects you from RPG damage, and gives you that snazzy continental flair.
(You should create some clothing so that you can follow the instructions given below to customize it. I'll use a duster as an example.)
The first thing you should do to any item you create is describe it. This is as easy as:

Before wearing your new piece of clothing, you'll have to set the areas on which it fits:
@coverage duster is arms,shoulders,chest,abdomen,groin,legs
When worn, the duster will cover every area except head, throat, hands and feet. See
@coverage for more information.

If someone has trusted you to strip them, you can strip the duster from them by typing
strip duster from <player>. Check out trustable actions for more info about trusting.

messages, so be sure to check out the full list of their names and functions.)
Clothing (and Nudity) is one of the most...interesting aspects of our MOO. You will benefit from learning how to use them. Win friends and influence people with your way mod duds!
