    Question How to use the Random statement to generate a random attack.

    I am making a text adventure that in a stage you have to fight an enemy. I want to use the Random() method so the enemy will use a random move when it is their turn to attack.

    Please add some "meat" to your question, enough so that we will be able to answer it intelligently, including just where you may be stuck. Here's a great article on how to ask a good question: Writing the Perfect Question by Jon Skeet

    I want Random() to randomly pick one of the attacks, or select one of the Strings randomly from the list.

    --- Update ---

    Nevermind, i found out how:

    Random random = new Random();
    int number = random.nextInt(3);


    and so on from there
