Database question
Wanting to create a database for the following list of questions:

Why do Citizens kill?
Why do Imperials kill?
Why do you slay our foes?
Why do you kill those who oppose us?
Why kill the non-Oathed?
(ANSWER) To defend and to teach

How do our foes learn when Citizens slay them?
How do Imperials teach when they kill?
How do you teach when you slay our foes?
How do our foes learn through death?
(ANSWER) The offering of the Bloodoath

Who gives power to the Imperial Guardians?
Who alone can appoint the Emperor?
Who does the Council answer to?
Who speaks through the Divine Sect?
Who raises the Council?
(ANSWER) The Immortal Lords of Empire

What do the Imperial Guardians defend for us?
What is guarded by the Imperial Guardians?
What did Baelind Telthin translate for all?
What states the goals of the Empire?
What defines our drive for civilization?
(ANSWER) The Imperial Codex

What power did Baelind Telthin write of?
What power does the Empire represent?
What do the Barbarians and Outlanders fear?
What power does our Might represent?
What makes wealth, art, peace, and health possible?
(ANSWER) The Power of Civilization

How do we recruit more to our cause?
What allows the Empire to grow?
What separates the Empire from all other Civilization?
What is the key to the success of Civilization?

(ANSWER) The Blood Oath

Recite your Oath, Citizen
What are the words to the Oath?
What are the words to the Blood Oath, Citizen?
What words bound your soul to the Empire?

What is required for True Civilization?
What is the power of the Oath based upon?
What does the Oath bring to a Citizen?
What is the way of the Empire?
What must an Imperial hold in their heart?
(ANSWER) Darkness and Order

And when I am asked one of the above questions:
The Shadow Sect Guardian tells you '*'

I'd like to just be able to have the answer automatically come up with an alias #al answer {@answer}

I've tried adding one lot of questions to their own string variable and then checking something like:
#tr {The Shadow Sect Guardian tells you '(*)'} {#if (@question = {%1}) {#var answer {say To defend and to teach}}

This does not get me good results :(

#ADDKEY answerTable {question} {answer}
#IF (%ismember(@question, %dbkeys(@answerTable))) {answer %db(@answerTable, @question)}

In your example you never define the @question variable, I will assume it is set elsewhere because otherwise, you are comparing %1 to a %null string, which will always turn up false.
If this is the only place it would be used, just use %1 instead of @question in the above examples, there is no need to save it beyond this setting.
