Brief is a command used to toggle on/off viewing of room descriptions.
Syntax: brief Toggles on and off the 'brief' mode. When in brief mode, you don't see the room description; only the room name, people and objects which happen to be there. Unless you are very familiar with the land it is strongly recommended that you do not use this command. Quite often room descriptions contain 'hints' or useful bits of advice that you will otherwise miss, perhaps leading to an untimely death. SEE ALSO: Compact
