Thank you both for replying, laughingleader nailed it for me.
The effects i wish to create would mostly be reactions/after effects to skills like that post death summon skill.

So when writing a game script just assume it's always listening...i guess thats what really confused me, i thought i had to link it to the skill somehow and was missing a very obvious step.

The actual story scripting doesn't interest me as there's a million and a half examples for that i can reference plus about 8 hours of YouTube tuts i can follow.
