Oh nein. Ich glaube, es wird regnen. Wenn ich zu Hause bin, kann ich nicht nass werden.

De Milite Inprudenti

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.


Slaying Song

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

Variable-specific item usage on 12/16/2017 10:49:35 PM

I don't recall ever experiencing anything like this. The item script runs every time the item is used. If, afterwards, the $DEST variable hasn't been changed, you get the "the item cannot be used here" message.

That's what the %MAGIC := %MAGIC - 50 is for.

I've heard myadventuregame.com is pretty similar

Suppose you wanted the item to take the player to page 22 if they're on page 11 and their magic is fifty or greater. This is what you'd put in the item script:

IF $PAGEID = 11 THEN IF %MAGIC >= 50 THEN BEGIN
  %MAGIC := %MAGIC - 50
  $DEST := @P22
END

Just replace the IDs as appropriate.

Setting background image trouble :( on 12/6/2017 3:09:24 PM

A couple things. First, it's best to add styling via scripting, since the rich-text editor will delete it otherwise and the plain text editor adds unnecessary newline tags. With scripting enabled, that's accessed via the := button next to the page's title. Second, it's better to use CSS. Third, you need to link directly to the image. Your link just goes to an HTML page containing the image:

$PAGETEXT := "" + $PAGETEXT

If that was the only condition, then it probably did. IIRC there need to be fewer restrictions with OR checked than there are restrictions total or the link is unrestricted.
