REGISTER is a verb mainly used to register items and their properties into a database only accessible by GameMasters in the event of item loss. It is also used to select a surname at each respective town's clerk.
One should register every item of importance to him or her.
Most merchants will register an item under your character before returning it to you when working on it. Players should re-register items if they have been further enchanted, ensorcelled or altered in any way by another player's character.
One can INSPECT an item to see how long ago it was registered.
Whether an item is registered will appear in parentheses after an item in a locker manifest.
