Survey

Help Survey

 
Syntax: survey (<direction>|here|.)

The various melee classes eventually learn how to retreat from fights with
poor odds.  However, retreating does no good if it involves running away
and right into the hands of another monster that's just as eager for blood.
Because of this, these fighters learn how to quickly scan the surroundings
while still in battle, before determining a safe direction for retreat.

This skill works whether or not the user is in combat; however, it will 
only have a chance to improve if used during combat.  Survey can take an
optional direction or 'here'/'.' to reduce output in a manner similar to
the 'scan' command.
