Hello, I am new to Twine and am wondering if there is any way to do a timed event in Harlowe? I know it can be done in Sugarcube, but for my instance I can not use Sugarcube (effectively). I want a timer to occur in a passage and either you choose one of the links in the passage or the passage defaults to a specific passage when time runs out.

you can use the (live:) macro to delay an action.

You have 6 seconds to choose one of the following:
[[Link 1->Passage 1]]
[[Link 2->Passage 2]]
[[Link 3->Passage 3]]

(live: 6s)[
	(go-to: "Other Passage")
]
