Triggering action regardless of whether actor is in room.

I was wondering if it was possible to invoke an action on an actor, even if the actor is not in the same room as the player.

I have been trying to do this, but I have not found a way to make this possible.

For example:

<action name here> Alice -> <action result>

even if Alice is in room Office and player is in room Foyer.

As of right now, if the above conditions are true, the code yields

<action name here> Alice -> You see no Alice here.

(Alice is an arbitrary name.)

Any help is appreciated.

You may want to read the article “Redefining Scope” in the Technical Manual. That will give you the tools with which to put Alice in scope for some particular action.

Oh… Okay.
