Summary 0002106: ?/ should show everything that inspecting an item does
Description As an example, ?/ "demon trident" only gives you the flavor line and accuracy/damage/speed. Looking at an actual weapon provides far more information, such as weapon type, handedness, favored stats, racial bonuses, enchantment capacity, and weight.

?/ should convey all of information that inspecting the physical item does, as omitting large swathes of it takes most of the value out of having a lookup feature in the first place, as players end up turning to out-of-game sources. Someone that goes to the trouble of manually looking something up wants a full description, not the superficial abridged version.

The following might not be complete, but non-weapon item lookup entries seem much more comprehensive, though they're lacking enchantments and weight. Monsters have most properties, but they're all missing MR, and "templates" like zombies are missing everything but basic flavor. Spell, skill, feature, and ability lookup seem complete, and gods are pretty good (except when they're bugged to show nothing, as in 1145). Branches are missing depth ranges, and cards are pretty vague.

Similarly, it would be nice if looking up a spell displayed castability and power for the current character.

Agreed, on both accounts, though the former is probably easier to add.

Done in [^]

Monsters gained MR at some point, and spells castability (I suspect both thanks to PleasingFungus). Branches now have their ranges, and cards have fairly detailed descriptions now.
