in the following example:
"Name Conflict" by HtF Persuasion rule for asking a man to try doing something: persuasion succeeds. TestRoom is a room. Joe is a man in TestRoom. Joe wears the RedHat. The Description of the RedHat is "A garish, red coloured hat." Understand "hat" as the RedHat. The GreenHat is worn by the player. The Description is "A garish, green coloured hat." Understand "hat" as the GreenHat.
We have a little problem when we ask Joe to take off the hat as Joe will ALWAYS take off HIS hat. When I ask Joe: Joe, take off my hat - it STILL defaults to HIS hat instead.
So the trick would be to either have Inform respect “my” to distinguish between Joe’s hat and the player’s hat or to ask the “which hat do you mean?” and then typing an additional clarification, although the “my” would be easier and less clumsy.
I’ve been doing some searching but I haven’t come up with a decent solution. Can anyone provide some help?
