Aside from the testing command SCENES, I don't know if there's a built-in way to access this or not. But if you want the list, you could do this: To decide which list of scenes is the list of active scenes: let L be a list of scenes; repeat with S running through scenes: if S is happening, add S to ...

If you wanted to use a flag, you could create a variable, like this: Flood-happened is a truth state that varies. Flood-happened is false. And then somewhere in the flooding sequence, you'd add "Now flood-happened is true": At the time when the lands flood: say "Erdis has flooded the ...
