There are several commands useful for operating a commercial ferry:
The captain of a ferry must issue `
to set a fee which will be charged to passengers wishing to
his ship. The fee is expressed as how many gold pieces per 100 weight
of the passenger's stack will be charged.
For instance, if the captain wanted to charge 1/2 gold per unit weight
of the passengers stack, he would issue `
'. (a 50
gold fee for every 100 weight).
The fee is a property of the captain, not the ship.
A character may clear the fee with the `
' order. If no
fee is set, then the ship is not considered to be operating as a ferry,
and characters are may not use the
board order to enter the ship.
Passengers issue `
' to board a ferry. The
order will fail if the ship is not present, or if it is not operating as
a ferry (the captain of the ship has no fee set).
cause the character to pay the captain the required boarding fee, then
move the character's stack onto the ship.
The captain shouldn't issue an
admit order to let characters on
board who will be paying to take the ferry. Otherwise they could board
the ship with
move instead of
board, bypassing the ferry
