How to make readers choice of name be said by other


#1

i want a character to say the name the reader chose but i don’t know how to do it.


#2

You’d put: input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME) in your script

and type in [NAME] or (NAME) anytime you want someone to refer to your character by the name they chose.


#3

like this?
it started like this
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

    NARR
You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {
continue
}

later on the story
i want poll to say the reader choice of name

POLL
By [NAME]

Did you put else because you have an alternate name for the MC if they choose not to input their name?

If you just want them to input their name, you can just follow the guide above and see how Dara further explains it. :slight_smile:

And yes, later on in the story Poll would just say “Bye, (NAME).”
