sitting up a variable to choose from the list of monsters
 
This is the trigger name

#Trigger {^You sense a hidden life form in the area.$}

this is the variable that I am working with

@InvMonster {imp|assi|kend|kobold|goblin}

Finally this is the body:

#loo 1,5 {
cib @invmonster
#wait 4000
}

The problem I am having is each time I one of these monsters. I would like the trigger to fire like this

You sense a hidden life form in the area.

I start to cast 'iceball' @InvMonster

at one of these five monsters, but it is seeing {imp|assi|kend|kobold|goblin} as one monster instead of seperate beasts. help

Use %item() to get a specific element. Assuming you want to just pick one at random, use %random().

not sure if I am doing this correctly. %item() is suppost to go in the variable like this

@InvMonster {%item( imp|assi|kend|kobold|goblin)}

or like this

#loo 1,5 {
cib, %item(@invmonster)
#wait 4000
}

both ways didn't not seem work. Anymore ideas?

your syntax is wrong. %item() requires 2 arguments, the first being the stringlist you wish to act upon and the second being the position of the element you want.
