Fortune cookie
Fortune cookies
are a food that, upon eating, will cause a fortune to be displayed. Fortunes are either true or false. True fortunes give helpful hints, such as obscure uses for items. False fortunes are either pointless or misleading. In the elona talk.txt file, fortunes are considered dialogue. True fortunes go under the section fortune1, and false goes under fortune2. You can use this to tell if you fortune is true or false, or you can look here. Better yet, you can write "false" after each false fortune and save it. A blessed fortune cookie will always produce a true fortune, cursed cookies will always produce a false fortune. However it is probably unwise to eat anything cursed either way. All other fortune cookies will produce either.
