delitem(<item id>, <amount>[, <account id>]);
delitem(<"item name">, <amount>[, <account id>]);


This command will take a specified amount of given item from the invoking character character. The items are destroyed - there is no way an NPC can simply own and have an inventory of items, other than by destroying and recreating them when needed.

Before items are deleted, the script should check, if the player has given amount of items. If there are not enough items, they are deleted anyway, but the script is terminated with an error then, to prevent exploits. If the specified item does not exist, nothing will be deleted, but the script is terminated with an error as well.

If account id is given, the items are deleted from the character, which is currently online on that account instead. If the player is not online, the script terminates.
