Contemplate is a command that lets a wizard focus on a spell, feeding all available gp into it. After enough gp, this can theoretically result in a tm in a skill that the spell uses.

Usage

> contemplate Wurphle's Midnight Snack
You focus your mind on Wurphle's Midnight Snack.
With Wurphle's Midnight Snack at the forefront of your mind, you enter a deep trance.
You emerge from your trance.
You feel Wurphle's Midnight Snack sitting in your mind, eager to be fed again.

After enough repetitions:

> contemplate Wurphle's Midnight Snack
You focus your mind once more on Wurphle's Midnight Snack.
With Wurphle's Midnight Snack at the forefront of your mind, you enter a deep trance.
You emerge from your trance.
You feel that you have contemplated this as far as you can for the moment.
Your mind feels less crowded as Wurphle's Midnight Snack returns to its normal place.
You feel exhausted from your ordeal; you should probably wait a while before contemplating Wurphle's Midnight Snack again.

Cross-contemplating

To cross-contemplate is to contemplate a spell, then contemplate a different spell before feeding enough gp into the first one. This results in an intelligence penalty of -4 for about fifteen minutes, which is reduced to -2 for another twenty minutes or so, then reduced to -1 for another fifteen minutes or so.
