Chapter - Make-Way
[ This is a quick submissive/unsubmissive scene. As the player is going either from Rise to North Beach or vice versa, they pass Progue on the way and have a chance to either force him to make way (submissive) or step aside to let him pass (unsubmissive).]

MW is a thread. The escape clause is mw_dodge.
mw_intro is a beat in MW with reaction "Suddenly [the Progue] barrels towards you, balancing a huge armful of [if konokuk trees are named]konokuk[otherwise]hairy brown[end if] fruits and heading for the path [if former location is North Beach]down[else]up[end if] the rise. 'Look out!' he shouts, 'coming through!' If you don't [mw_dodge], he's going to have a [mw_problem].". mw_intro suggests mw_problem.
Understand "dodge" as mw_dodge when last beat is in MW. mw_dodge is an unsubmissive terminal beat in MW with keyword name "dodge" and reaction "You jump to one side, only just keeping your balance on the edge of the lava flow, as Progue tumbles [if former location is North Beach]down[else]up[end if] the path, barely but somehow managing to keep the fruits balanced. 'Close as close!' he shouts back, 'thanks!' and is gone.".
Understand "problem" as mw_problem when last beat is in MW. mw_problem is a submissive terminal beat in MW with keyword name "problem" and reaction "Annoyed, you stand your ground, forcing [the Progue] to veer wildly around you. The armful of fruits go flying, bouncing noisily [if former location is North Beach]down the face of the lava flow to plunk noisily into the sand below[otherwise]off the face of the lava flow and rolling gently across the sand nearby[end if] as he watches sadly.[paragraph break]'Dear oh dear oh,' he mutters, moving to gather them up, 'terrible sorries, [animal-nickname], just didn't see you there. Not used to things being there if you ring.' And with a quick nod of the head is gone.".
