  • Section - Player Description (in place of Section SR1/11 - People in Standard Rules by Graham Nelson)

    [Authors can easily override the description of the player, but extension authors can't without tromping on the final author's ability to (can't have two "usually" or two "is" lines). Bother. The only line changed is the description of yourself property. ]

    The specification of person is "Despite the name, not necessarily
    a human being, but anything animate enough to envisage having a
    conversation with, or bartering with."

    A person can be female or male. A person is usually male.
    A person can be neuter. A person is usually not neuter.

    A person has a number called carrying capacity.
    The carrying capacity of a person is usually 100.

    Include (-
        has transparent animate
        with before NULL,
    -) when defining a person.

    The yourself is an undescribed person. The yourself is proper-named.

    The description of yourself is usually "You see nothing unexpected about yourself." ["As good-looking as ever."]

    The yourself object translates into I6 as "selfobj".
    Include (-
        with saved_short_name "yourself",
    -) when defining yourself.
