  • Chapter - Persuasion Uses Both Characters' Turns
    [Persuasion commands like BOB, PEEL POTATO use Bob's turn as well as the player's.]
    The persuadee is a person that varies. Before asking someone to try doing something, now the persuadee is the person asked.
    Every turn (this is the every on-stage NPC gets a turn rule):
        repeat with the performer running through on-stage people who are not the player:
            if the performer is not the persuadee,
                try what the performer will do next;
        now the persuadee is the player.
