Audio Recap: Robot Week



Three years, people. Three years of dumb goon wibble bibble, terrible goon characters and ridiculous last-minute gobbets of goony word spunk splattered on the screen. It's really not good is it? Maybe we need something new, something clean. Maybe we need a ... ROBOT APOCALYPSE. Give me a story about our robotic overlords finally waking up and disliking what their robo-receptors see.

It's a big topic and I'm not gonna lie, you're probably not up to it. Luckily we have a bloodthirsty robotic minion to help out: our very own TDBOT.


    quote:
    dockloc: always blame tdbot
    TDbot: Well Anson, sorry about the shootin', but I got a job to do.

TDBOT was coded by crabrock, lives in irc and there it plots, and schemes, like an adorably hate-filled aleatoric spider.


    quote:
    kaishai: TDbot, if you would?
    TDbot: Tell the rest of your people of my rule and let them know the one God has come.

Ask TDBOT a question and it will pop out a random sentence from the 3.5 million words with which the Thunderdome has already cursed the world. Random? Really?


    quote:
    ahfb: tdbot make love to me
    TDbot: He grabbed him from behind, shoving him to the ground, and plunging a knife that was somehow at the ready in his hand.

Haha, no of course not. TDBOT knows all, sees all, and is full of nothing but loathing for everything and everyone. The words it selects, naturally, reflect that.


    quote:
    crabrock: tdbot nooooo
    TDbot: Whatever.

So upon entering we will ask TDBOT a question, and give you the answer: use its dark wisdom as you choose. If you want, you can give us a question to ask, a word the answer should contain or an author from which to select, but TDBOT really doesn't care so don't expect it to make much difference to your ultimate fate.


    quote:
    crabrock: tdbot do you still work
    TDbot: YOU WILL DIE AGAIN.

Judges are OG meatsacks me and kaishai* and sitting here and crabrock and ... someone else


    quote:
    sittinghere: let tdbot judge
    TDbot: I stand up, charred chunks of smoking flesh fall to the ground.

*may be omnicidal planet-spanning AI overlord rather than meatsack
