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.

Writing out an idea for the No Travel Game Jam. I have a general plot and challenge written out, it's just a matter of filling the rest in and making it interesting.
A definite difficult time right now. How is everyone doing during this pandemic? I already have seen furloughs and layoffs.

Hope you and your family are doing well during this difficult time. :)
My elderly neighbor whom I've been buying groceries for just got carried out of his home on a stretcher by guys with hazmat suits. Considering I've been his only point of contact for the past month it's probably safe to say my boss was right to tell me to stay home once I developed a mild cough after all.
Damn. All these new features to the forums. Takes some getting used to.
