I have played blades of avernum and I am now new to editor. Can anyone help in the new beginning?

I did some cutscene related scripting today, and ...

 

beginstate 11;
message_dialog("You come to the main hall of this town. As you arrive, a big figure comes down from
the stairs. It's a dragon! You can't believe yourself. This should be a important part of your
quest.","The dragon starts to speak.");
force_view_center(54,38);
pause(2);

relocate_character(12,53,38);
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(3);
relocate_character(12,52,38);
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(3);
relocate_character(12,51,38);
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(3);
relocate_character(12,50,38);
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(3);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"Who are you?");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(20);

message_dialog("Before you can tell something...","");
text_bubble_on_char(12,"However,you have came in..");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"And my guards have left you..");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"You couldn't have killed them as");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"you would have been killed by doomguards");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"then this arrival should be generous");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);

text_bubble_on_char(12,"Welcome then, we can talk.");
force_instant_terrain_redraw();
pause(25);
break;
 

The script only works upto the point 

message_dialog("Before you can tell something...","");

and the game crashes for 2-3 seconds and things go as there was nothing in the script after that! What was the mistake? Please help me. And, this topic was silent for few days as I was just unable to do any designing for a week.

Yeah, I know I am not making any progress. But don't think that I am one of those who makes oaths of creating scenarios and do nothing. I thought that the plot was too dumb and large for a first timer to do with and I am busy with my work too right now. But hopefully I will create something decent and never go scenario-less.

Yeah, I had abandoned everything, started afresh and am working on it for 3 days.... very minimalist not like the 1st attempt I tried to make, simple enough to complete and will be probably out in 10 days if not for outside disturbances... And it was not like the 1st attempt was too hard to script, but I felt that the plot was just too dumb and why I was putting such effort on my first scenario. I'm certainly sure of completing this time but I'm not expecting it to be perfect but clean. The best way to start for first scenario-makers.

Wow it has been 1 exact year since the last post! Well, the thing is that I stopped working just 2 days after the last post, due to busy schedule which began to creep in as the previous year proceeded and that is why I am even inactive here for a long time. I am most probably not going to work on any of these things for this year and for the first half of 2023... but no I am not a person who completely gave up! I'll try to continue on this hobby whenever I get time and would contribute to BoA whenever it happens.
