Pulling a single string from a String List Variable
 
This should be a super simple option but I'm apparently just missing it completely.

I would like to pull a simple string out of my string list variable to send to the mud in a triggered event.

In this case I would like to have a randomized yell in certain events.

I could do this as a simple trigger using #CASE and manually putting my yells in but I will most likely be constantly adding/removing yell options/phrases and thus using a variable will make things easier.

#var AmazingYell {Oh yeah|Boo-yah|I am the best around}
#trigger {You do something amazing}{yell %random(@AmazingYell)}

Then when I do something amazing I'll simply yell one of my amazing yells.

Obviously the above doesn't function properly but it is the basics of what I would like to do.

Currently I would have to use
#trigger {You do something amazing}{yell #case %random {Oh Yeah} {Boo-yah} {I am the best around}}

Item! Gah I couldn't figure that out. This is why you my friend are the Wizard and I am yet a newb. I shall attempt this and will get back to you if this doesn't work out ;)

Edit:

After testing this worked perfectly. I'm also glad you thought of the item number as well so I can continually add/remove items from the list!
