    The Mafia update didn't add a way to get the Trivia Master effect from the gCLI, so the script is still useful.

    EDIT: would a "geteffect" command make sense? It would work like "acquire", but for effects: it would simply use whatever is in statuseffect.txt, just like the maximizer does.
    Try the Nemesis Quest Script or the FamiliarFeeder interface.

    Fun Fact: Veracity, one of the two people most responsible for the ASH programming language, does not like to use ASH scripts.

    You just vehemently agreed with me

    I was not expecting this turn of events when I posted, but I guess if one of the high ups like Veracity likes the idea enough to make it base code that's kind of cool.

    If it reassures you, the name for the command is nearly as bad as the one you suggested while being far less descriptive.
