I know that \N[] and \P[] return you the actor name in the number and party order, but how could we refer to the currently active actor?
Like for example, if Reid casts a fireball in battle, I want him to say a quote "I am casting Fire" with the text box displaying Reid's name. Then, if Casey casts fireball, I want her to say a quote "Let me warm things up" with the text box displaying Casey's name.
I am thinking that to make a quote for a skill we will have to call a common event, but I don't know how to distinguish which actor is calling the comment event (the caster of fireball in my example).
Thanks.

So apparently the surprise Google Search page browser game saves your progress when you close the browser.

This really makes me miss the golden age of Flash gaming.
