How would I give ChoiceScript a small number generator/dice to select a certain situation?

What I am trying to do is have ChoiceScript randomize a number between 1 and 10, with 1, 2 being [no enemies] 3, 4, and 5 being [1 enemy], 6, 7, 8 being [2 enemies] and 9, 10 being [3 enemies].
I would have a scene written out for 1/2/3 enemies, and just want CS to randomly pick one, so with my game instead of knowing how to progress through each level it’s randomized.

Just be careful as if you have it on the same page as your fight, it’ll re-roll ever time the player checks their stat page. It’s better to have it on the page before so it doesn’t keep rolling.

*temp diceroll 1

You enter a house.
*rand diceroll 1 10

*if diceroll =1
*set enemyno 1
*set enemy “enemy”

*if diceroll = 2
*set enemyno 2
*set enemy “enemies”

(etc for all the numbers)


As you walk into the living room {enemyno} {enemy} jumps out at you looking for a fight.

Edit: If you have different scenes, instead of setting enemy numbers you could just redirect to the scene. I

*if (diceroll < 3)
*goto_scene noenemy


If you are using goto (instead of goto_scene) remember to have the diceroll on a different page (separated by a page_break) or people will find the scene jumps every time they check their stat page at the start of the fight.
