In nowhere meaning it's not on a player, not in a players inventory, in
room_nowhere, and not in a container.

It's the same thing that would happen to an object if you did this function:

void make_nowhere_object(int vnum)
  struct obj_data *obj;

  obj = read_object(vnum, VIRTUAL0;


It would load an object into memory but it wouldn't go anywhere, not on a
char, not in his inv, not in a room and not in a container. Jusat floating
about, wasting memory, because it's impossible to get these items. *shrug*

Guess I'll have to just keep going through the code.
