Mass Thought Reader Agent

I keep wishing I could use the CRC on more than one Norn at once. Would it be possible to create an agent that works like the CRC's 'thought reader' panel except that it displays one bar for each currently living Norn? It would be really useful for the kind of 'psychological' studying I like to do.

Of course it would be possible. I only used the NORN command (currently selected creature) because it was convenient. As long as it is a creature, you can read any TARG's mind. The only problem I see with your idea is that the screen could get kinda littered when you have too many creatures.
Here you go, good luck with it:

adds va00 "<nothing>"

sets va00 "<No Creature Selected>"

When you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I believe I did a minor mistake, because DECN 0 is a valid action too, but it is not terribly bad because it was something like "rest", so they are essentially doing nothing anyway.

EDIT: Oh right, tabbing does not work. Sorry for that :\

! Oh wow, thanks! I'll have to give it a try today! Its use in high population worlds is definitely limited, but if it works right, it'll be a godsend for when I'm studying groups of 2-6. I was worried it might be a lagmonster, or something, but looks like it'll be okay. :D I'm really new to agenteering so this will probably take me a while to turn into a working anything, but I really appreciate your help! It's especially useful because I'll know its output is the same as the CRC's would have been.
