Sacrificing to Gods

Syntax: sacrifice <object> <deity>

The sacrifice command allows a character to turn an item currently in the
room with him into a sacrifice to a specified deity. This destroys the item
(similar to the destroy command) and he may be rewarded by the deity in
question if the sacrifice is noticed.

Sacrifices may be performed anywhere, to any deity, by anyone; however,
early sacrifices, even of powerful items, may not incur a response. The
chance of a deity responding increases as you sacrifice more powerful items
to that deity, if you are pious or a sigiled follower of that religion, or
if you perform the sacrifice at an altar to the specified deity. Followers
in better standing can gain more powerful iterations of their deitys favor
with their sacrifices.
