    Story Template issues

    Hey Dakadin,
    I posted this to House of Healing but it appears to be a RMC issue.
    I'm making Story Templates that I'm wanting to do hidden table calls upon. However the hidden call command "[?table] isn't working properly.

    In the jpg, the Golden Carp Supply result is generated using the [?Gender] command. The Zenith Store result is generated using [Gender].

    It WILL hide call results that aren't from an imbedded sub-table. As shown, it will hide the personal pronoun columns. But it WON'T hide the results from the sub-tables.
    Any suggestions?

    I have attached copies of all custom tables and Story Template involved

    Yeah, superteddy57 pointed it out to me so I did some tests and can replicate the issue in CoreRPG and 5E. It looks like the rolls for the tables within tables is happening as a separate action so it isn't picking up that it needs to suppress the output. He is going to contact the appropriate developer to see about getting it fixed.

    Ah,
    that's what I figured but was hoping it was my mistake. Ah well.

    I was playing with the story templates and discovered this work-around.
    In the posted example I'm using the call [?Gender] to try to roll the Gender table and keep results hidden; but it doesn't hide the nested table results.
    Using the cross template referencing function, it DOES. So what I did was this.
    {:?Gender:G} which called the table, assigned the results to G, and didn't print anything to the resulting story entry.
    Then, where I did a reference; say Gender: #Gender|1#, I changed it to
    Gender: {#G|1#}

    Worked like a charm.
