Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Inheritance Instance Methods

NameError: name 'kwargs, is not defined:

Here is my code. The kwargs dict is defined or packed in init. I don't understand why it says it's not defined. Am I missing something?

class Character:
  experience = 0
  hit_points = 10

  def get_weapon(self):
    weapon_choice= input("Weapon [S]word, [A]xe, [B]ow: ").lower()

    if weapon_choice in 'sab':
      if weapon_choice == 's':
        return 'sword'
      elif weapon_choice == 'a':
        return 'axe'
      else:
        return 'bow'
    else:
      return self.get_weapon()

  def __init__(self, **kwargs):
    self.name = input("Name: ")
    self.weapon = self.get_weapon()

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

Increase the indent of the kwarg loop:

def __init__(self, **kwargs):
    self.name = input("Name: ")
    self.weapon = self.get_weapon()

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

thank you ;)
