Morning @SizeOfACow ,

You’ve got an extra space between ’ and W that you don’t need!
' Wrong! You lose 10 health!';

Looks like everything else is good to go.

Thank you KTO, very helpful!
Also, while I’m asking stupid questions - how would I add a different background image for each location?

Not a worry and that’s not a stupid question!

You can add images independently to the different elements through CSS;

body {
background-image: url(“linkToImageHere”);
}

html {
background-image: url(“chicken.gif”);
}

You can layer these different background images in different layers and see how that works out - adding an opaque area over the background is fairly common such as (ignore the content and eye bleeding text-shadow, was just messing around, lol):

There’s actually a lot of really cool things you can do with CSS if you explore some of the things available. Text-shadow is a cool one, nothing wrong with exploring stuff outside of here!

Hey KTO, thanks for your response.

That was my first thought and I had already done that. I want to know how to make the background image “different” for each location within the game using a JS function, or am I getting ahead of myself?
