While doing further testing, I was not getting the expected response when trying to get a group of characters to move an object.
I have it on the characters setup tab as being 'Male Character (plural)' or 'Female Character (plural)'. There is no 'Inherited Type' for such groups of characters, so had to add 'npc_type' to the list of Inherited Types. Is there a reason behind this?
Also, is there any difference in the 'Gender', 'Article' and 'Possessive' attributes for 'Male Character (plural)' or 'Female Character (plural)', would it not be easier just to have one 'Group character(male/female)'.
