Kill

Help Kill

 
Syntax: kill <target>
        murder <target>

This is the simplest way to initiate combat with your opponent. '
kill' will
start combat, which continues until either of you is dead, has fled or
something else has happened.  When meeting new monsters, it is generally
thought wise to '
consider' them before fighting; see 'help consider'.

You may not always want to kill the first instance of a monster in the
room; see '
help mobtargeting' to learn how to target different monsters.

In order to kill a guard of your own clan, you must '
murder' it.  Note that
this will give you a traitor flag (see '
help traitor').
