Hi, I’m fairly new to ZILF, and have limited experience with Inform 7. However I am really loving ZILF in general! Currently I am making a small little game where the player has to interact with an NPC (asking questions and whatnot). I have the NPC flagged as a person (via PERSONBIT) but I don’t know how to make it so that you can refer to the NPC with pronouns. For example, if you said something like > ask him about … it would respond with “they are no longer here.” But when you use the actual name, it works. What’s going on?
(Here’s the definition of the NPC who is a Clerk)
<OBJECT CLERK (DESC "clerk") (IN INFORMATION-CENTER) (FLAGS PERSONBIT) (ACTION CLERK-F) ;"<~ Where questions are handled" (LDESC "A helpful looking person, who seems willing to help.")>
