Hello, I keep getting this traceback error and I cannot figure out why. Can someone help? Thanks in advance!
COLORS= ['yellow','blue','green','black'] class Monster(object): min_hit_points = 1 max_hit_points = 1 min_experience = 1 max_experience = 1 weapon = 'sword' sound = 'roar'
def init(self,**kwargs): self.hit_points = random(self.min_hit_points, self.max_hit_points) self.experience = random(self.min_experience, self.max_experience) self.color = random.choice(COLORS)
for key,value in kwargs.items(): setattr(self,key, value)
def battlecry(self): return self.sound.upper()
from monster import Monster
jubjub = Monster()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/home/treehouse/workspace/monster.py", line 12, in init
TypeError: 'module' object is not callable

On first view, your code is missing two things:
- The double underscores around init are missing. The line should read:
def __init__(self, **kwargs):
- When the program needs to chose a number between the max_hit_points and min_hit_points for self.hit_points the function random.randint() needs to be called. Same for self.experience.
I didn't test it, but I think this could maybe work.
