[I7] Acting on remote things

Hi. I have a rather nooby question. I want to create an action which can be used on any player-character, regardless of whether or not they are in the same room as the player. I can’t find any way to make I7 let the player use the action on remote things, though. Any pointers?

This is discussed in the manual chapter 16.7 and its examples. Basically you use the “any” qualifier in the action’s grammar like this:

[code]Calling is an action applying to one visible thing.
Understand “call [any person]” as calling.

Report calling:
say “You call [the noun] and hang up right away. Sucker!”[/code]
