Lock - Come on baby light my fire

Description

On Epitaph, doors and containers can sometimes be locked and unlocked. You may perhaps find keys as you go through the game, but often you will not - these locks must either be picked or jimmied open. However, if you're lucky, you'll find a key that lets you lock and unlock as desired.

Locking and Unlocking

Doors are the primary thing you'll find locked and unlocked as you travel - the keys to these are usually long gone, unless it's a special door in a special area. However, some doors can be unlocked by hand from a particular direction - the 'lock' and 'unlock' commands are associated with locks, and these allow you to try your lock with all keys, or simply try your luck with any keys you happen to possess. 'lock <item>' and 'unlock <item>' will also permit you to lock and unlock by hand if the lock permits it.
