Randomization in Squiffy

I want to make it so that selecting a section title will randomly generate one of a few possible results. Does anyone know how to create this random function on Squiffy? I found this code:

var rnd = Math.ceil(Math.random() * 3); // random number between 1 and 3

{ if rnd=1: answer 1 }
{ if rnd=2: answer 2 }

But it doesn't seem to be working.
Any tips or suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

See this thread: http://textadventures.co.uk/forum/squiffy/topic/q7ms8j7th0abymd64mnmbw/trying-to-assign-random-number-to-a-variable-attribute

Note: Javascript in Squiffy files needs to be indented (as per the Squiffy documentation).

Note 2: in the final example at that thread, you only need to put the function in your Squiffy file once. Then, whenever you want to generate a random number in a certain range and assign it to a Squiffy attribute, you just put this in your passage or section to call the function (using whichever numbers you want for the high and low number):

    set("int", squiffy.getRndInteger(0,10));

In the example above, "int" is the name of the Squiffy attribute that will be assigned a random integer, '0' is the lowest integer in the range of random integers, and '10' is the highest. And 'getRndInteger' is the name of a Squiffy attribute that has been made equal to the randomizing function. It's basically a function itself.

I'm wondering the same thing, where choosing an action will have random results, but I want them to be based on other variables as well, making certain outcomes more or less likely to happen based on the values of said variables.

The same things loopernow said above apply to this, too.
