Character moving from room to room


im very much in the beginning still and i don’t know how to make a character just go from one room into another. Do i need a door? How does it work?

You can have a non-player character perform actions using the “try” syntax:

try John going north;

Of course, you need to put such a line in an approrpiate rule for it to fire at the right time.

Do you mean the player character or a NPC? Assuming this is Inform 7, check out chapter 7.13. in the Recipe Book. The basic operation is “move X to Y” where X is either “player” or NPC’s name and Y is the room’s name, or “try Bob going south” (or just “try going south” for the player) to have the characters go to adjacent rooms.
