EVENTING: Eventing is how you program or tell the game engine what each character or object does in the game...how characters (NPCs) or environments interact with players. Does clicking on the NPC display a dialogue box that informs the player of vital game / story information? Does the NPC offer a choice, if so, what happens when a choice is selected by the player? Eventing is what you tell the Event to do in a given situation.
Hope these were helpful!
