Syntax: \<command\> \<arguments\> it \<extra arguments\>

'It' is a special target keyword which indicates the last mobile upon which
you have performed an action.  It may be used in place of any character name
for in-room commands (e.g. charge, cast, kill).  This is handy in areas with
lots of similarly named mobiles (e.g. Greece with all those Spartans).

Special target 'it' has precedence over all other targets for which 'it' might
be an abbreviation, so if you've just been killing Uncle Lester and he flees
into a room with Cousin It you can rush after him and 'charge it' to charge
Uncle Lester.  If you wanted to kill It instead for some reason you should use
'it$' (see help abbreviations).
