Hey, thats a really good point. I think adding in another cursor might be a bit annoying but I think you're right, 'Grab' is better than 'Take'.
Plus that opens up all sorts of jokes for 'grabbing' characters later on...!
"grab" - still doesn't make sense to me!
(in terms of grab being used as interaction)
me, personally: I would scrap the commands & right click cycle thing & just use a single command "left_click" for walk & interact & right click for examine (modern day command interface) - but that's just me
, as I'm not particular to text selection or cycle command interfaces.
