Description

Torches (or lanterns) are one of the few necessities (along with the obligatory fluffy towel) needed on those long adventures to desecrate evil temples... or other dark spots. Most places that require the attention of your standard adventuring party tend to be dark, you know.
Although a brightly burning torch may look the part, many adventurers prefer lanterns, as refuelling can be rather handy when you're lost in a deep dark mine or temple.

Example

> light lantern
> extinguish lantern
> dowse lantern
> refuel lantern with lamp oil in bottle
