Hello Peter,

There's one slight problem.  How can I target a player with a random
trigger?  It doesn't have any variables that can target players, has it?  Or
if it does, please explain how I would write a script that somehow loops
through ALL the characters in a specific room and then use like REWARD on
them or something like that.

I know it'd be easier to code it in raw into the spec_procs but I just want
to get on the road here with DG Scripts and learn some more advanced coding
with it to explore a little. :)

If not, perhaps someone has a custom trigger that works, like the mudtime
trigger that obviously is in the not-yet-released pl8 of DG Scripts (will it
ever be released?).

I am pretty sure though, that it's not possible to find all the players in a
room with the random trigger, just the first player, I think... ???

Kind Regards,
Torgny Bjers
