The ORDER verb is used when at various NPC merchants to display the catalog, and to make purchases. The command is typically used in permanent shops, while at temporary shops (at festivals and pay events) one must look on/in/under fixtures like tables and mannequins and APPRAISE items individually.

ORDER displays the shop catalog.
ORDER #           = Get info and price about an item.
ORDER # of #      = Order a quantity of an item.

ORDER # COLOR {colorname}       = Order an item and have it dyed.
ORDER # MATERIAL {materialname} = Order an item made from custom material.

All above options may be combined into a single command. Example:

ORDER 5 of 3 COLOR red MATERIAL glaes

The above command would order 5 of item 3 dyed red and made of glaes.
