Another option (depending on your design) is to have the walk(), fire()... command sequence queued up on your C/C++ side (not everything needs to be written in Lua ;-) --- sometimes easier to develop and debug if your app can be driven from C/C++ easily.

Then when the action queue runs dry just call the Lua script to get more actions.  If an action fails (a door closed and the walk command can't finish), then clear the queue and call your script (possibly with a action_failed parameter) to figure out a new action.

Hope that hints at another solution.
