Heh.  How many people who just read that envisioned player2 picking
up player1 and using him to beat the rat to death?  :)

But it's an interesting approach, semantically matching EverQuest's
'assist' notion.  If used verbatim,

> assist player1
> attack

or

> assist player1, attack

depending on how your parser works.
