I want to create a verb for staff in my game so that they can check the world log at any time. Is this possible? And if so, how would it be done?
Well, There are plenty of ways to do this. You could have a world-level variable hold everything and after every logged action occurs, append it to that variable with

log+="John Doe preformed a generic action.

If you don't know HTML Br is just a line break, and it will create a new line.

When the staff uses the verb to view the log, have it browse that variable. Everything you've logged since the start of the world will be output to them.

Timestamps could be applied with embedded statements using time2text(), the reference can help you with the syntax.
