Dialog placeholders (player rank, shipname etc.)
 
Hi,

just had the chance to play with the Foundry yesterday for 20min or so, so maybe I missed something, but I was wondering, how one would insert fields for the player's rank, last name etc. in NPC dialog.

Are there placeholders for this, and if so, which?

Regards,
Rachel

This ought to help out! There are quite a few. Enter these inside of the brackets into the character text, and it will display things such as your name, shipname etc. Exaples below.

[NickName] : Prints the character's nickname.
[LastName] : Prints the formal last name of the character.
[FirstName] : Prints the formal first name of the character.
[Rank] : Prints the player's current Starfleet or Klingon Rank. (Vice Admiral)
[ShipName] : Prints the informal name of the player's ship. (Enterprise)
[ShipFullName] : Prints the formal name of the player's ship. (U.S.S. Enterprise)
[ShipRegistry] : Prints the full registry number of the player's ship (N.C.C. 1701)
[ShipType] : Prints the type of the player's ship. (Galaxy Class Cruiser)
