This command allows you to silently pick up an object either from the ground or from another object. If you use the special "to my hands" argument, you will also attempt to quietly hold the item.

The use of this command will cost you 10 covert points.

It uses the skill covert.manipulation.palming for determining how succesful you are at not being seen.
