Wanted to ask if there's a way to have a random chance of choosing between several choice branches.

Example: I wanted to have a thing where the player can walk into a location and have a random chance of finding different characters there. So, would it be possible to have something like an automatic scene transition but have a random chance between the choices instead of something like a variable deciding it?

Event Command: Control Variables
Operator: Set
Operand value: Choose a random number between two numbers.

According to the variable, you Check with a Conditional Branch and do different things for different values. Variable decides it, but it gets a random value. Boom.

Hi, you can use Number Variable command and for Source you can select "Random" and then you can set a From-To Range to generate a random number. You can also use that random number to pick a value from a list if you use it as Index. (Get from List command)
Link to source.

A definite difficult time right now. How is everyone doing during this pandemic? I already have seen furloughs and layoffs.
