How do I get my NPC to reply when asked about something if that something is not in the table? I would like the recipient of the question to look puzzled, or say “What?”. etc. I can’t find a phrase that responds to a missing topic entry.
After asking Barak about a topic listed in the Table of Briefing Answers: say "[answer entry]."; Instead of asking Barak about nothing listed in the Table of Briefing Answers: say " 'What?' "; Table of Briefing Answers Topic Answer "room/inn/stables" "Don't worry about it. It's been taken care of for you" "morning" or "leaving" "At dawn, right after breakfast. You have a busy day ahead of you" "breakfast/food" "Probably not as good as this. I'll see what Bork can whip up" "bork/bartender" "Bork owns the Inn. He has served the king faithfully for years" "chapel" "[description of chapel_answer]" "Cuthberts" "[description of cuthberts_answer]" "Triskelion/weapon" "[description of Triskelion_answer]" "team" or "former team" "[description of team_answer]" "previous team" "[description of team_answer]"
When I try following code:
Instead of asking Barak about something not listed in the Table of Briefing Answers, say "What?".
Problem. You wrote ‘Instead of asking Barak about something not listed in the Table fo Briefing Answers’ , which seems to introduce a rule taking effect only if the action is ‘asking Barak about something not listed in the Table fo Briefing Answers’. But that did not make sense as a description of an action. I am unable to place this rule into any rulebook.
I have tried to catch various errors and report a reply, but I get a compile error. The rule that is fired last is the Block Asking rule.
