help hold

hold <object> [in <hand>]

Holds the item that you specify.

if the item is a weapon, this works just like wield. If the item is a shield, holding it will protect you in combat. You can wear two shields at once if you really wanted... you'll be harder to hit, but you'll be rubbish at fighting back.

>hold torch
You hold a torch in your right hand.

release, wield, unwield
