So, if you’re asking a character to try doing something, Before and Instead rules work fine. After rules, however, I can’t seem to trigger.
[code]startroom is a room.
Harold is a man in startroom.
Persuasion rule for asking someone to try waiting: rule succeeds.
After asking a person (called instructee) to try waiting: say “[instructee] looks distinctly bored.”[/code]
But if you turn on action listing, the asking-Harold-to-try-waiting rule succeeds, and I don’t see any other rules that would interfere. What’s going on here?
