        "Character Monitoring"

        Hallway is north of Foyer and south of Ballroom. Dining Room is east of Ballroom. Stage is west of Ballroom.

        A guest is a kind of person. Alec, Betty, Cecil, Deidre, and Emile are guests in the Hallway.

        A mood is a kind of value. The moods are petulant, nonchalant, blase, and keen. A person has a mood. A person is usually petulant.

        Every turn:
            in the console say "*** Beginning NPC processing";
            repeat with NPC running through guests:
                now NPC is a random mood;
                if NPC is keen:
                    let spot be location of NPC;
                    let route be the best route from spot to a random room which is adjacent to spot;
                    if route is a direction, try NPC going route;
                in the console say "[NPC] is [mood of NPC][if mood of NPC is keen], so moves to[otherwise]; in[end if] [location of NPC]."

        test me with "console / z / z".
