Python Object-Oriented Python Inheritance Super-Duper!

Im getting a NameError when running my code. Please help to see what i'm doing wrong

import random

class Character:
        def __init__(self, name, **kwargs):
        self.name = name

        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

class Warrior(Character):
    strong = True

    def __init__(self, name, strong=True, **kwargs):
        super().__init__(name, **kwargs)
        self.strong = strong

    def attack(self):
        return self.attack and bool(random.randint(0, 1))

    def hide(self, light_level):
        return self.attack and light_level < 10

It helps debug to include the stackdump show with the error. Can you add it to your post?

NameError: name 'kwargs' is not defined

The for loop over kwargs is outside of the __init__ method where it is defined. Indent the for loop to be inside the method to fix the error.

Post back if you have more questions. Good luck!!
