WAVE is a roleplaying verb that has special functionality for Aelotois, as well as special wedding messaging.

WAVE also allows for magic item activation. An item imbedded with the wave verb activator is the only one that allows a character to target another creature or character with the imbedded spell. Imbedding offensive spells like Minor Acid (904) is useless unless this activator is used. There is no bonus/penalty to either the activation skill attempt or the spell's duration.
