Summary0000638: Defining facts about player before defining who player is discards those facts
DescriptionExcept for when it comes to ordering rules, I think the compiler should ideally be as agnostic to the order of lines in the source text as possible.

In this case, though, this seems even more clearly a bug: the author has defined certain facts about the player character, whom NI made assumptions about; on discovering that its assumptions were incorrect, rather than reevaluating, it simply discards those facts.

The watch, for example, is worn by "your former self", which surely should never happen unless the player becomes a different actor as the result of a "now" phrase during play.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Park is a room. A blanket is an enterable supporter in the Park.

The player wears a watch. The player is on the blanket.

The player is a woman called Terry.
Additional InformationPark
You can see a blanket here.

You are carrying nothing.
