The Broken Hourglass Monday Update

Planewalker Games' official website has received its usual Monday update for The Broken Hourglass, this time taking a closer look at the game's scripting language.
Resources such as items, creatures, and spells all fall under the umbrella of a scripting "thing." We refer to things in wscript with a matched pair of strings, separated by a double colon. Generally speaking, the left side of a thing is the name of the thing, while the right side is the type of resource it is.

For example--


are both things--the creature internally named "makarios" and the item internally known as "greatsword", respectively.
