  • TW Event Bot Module List

    To read on Google Docs, click here.






    This is a complete list of all bot modules available on RoboBot, the event hosting bot. I hope this will encourage ERs to host events using little-known bot modules, and encourage players to request them. It's divided into general modules, which don't have a specific arena they need to be used in, and specific modules, which are tied to a specific arena.

    This version in forums is copy-pasted, so it may not look great. Recommend using the Google Docs version, which will also be updated in the future, whereas this post will not.

    TODO:
    • Add RoboBot utils.
    • Add events hosted by bots other than RoboBot.

    The Master Arena List has also been updated with info on which specific bot modules are used in an arena, if applicable. Click here to view.





    General Modules

    These modules can be used in many different arenas. Try to think of new uses for them!

    acro

    Compete to create the most creative or funny meaning for the given acronym.
    baseassault

    For use in basing arenas. One team attacks, the others defend. Once the attackers take the flag, the round is over. Then teams switch and the new attackers try to beat that score.
    blackjack (formerly bbj)

    Blackjack, the classic card game. (IDEA: Hook up to pubbux?)
    boggle

    Word game Boggle, where players compete to make words from a grid of letters, earning more points for difficult words. For a better graphical version, use the bogglelvz module in ?go boggle.
    bountyhunter

    Elim game. First, make kills. Kills don't count until the killer is over a certain bounty. After that, any kill they make will eliminate other players (unless they are also over the bounty threshold).
    conquer

    Players start on separate freqs, and each kill they make recruits the player they killed to their team. A player wins by recruiting everyone to their freq.
    gangsoftw

    Every player is a gang leader to start. Recruit gang members by killing them. Swap out less-skilled gang members as needed. Gang members can't be eliminated by too many deaths, but gang leaders can. Last gang standing wins.
    goldengun (formerly golden)

    One player starts with super. Kill the player to get the golden gun. Should be used either in coordination with a spec task over X deaths, or as a race to X kills.
    hunt

    Players are given a target to hunt. If they kill them, the target is eliminated. Last standing wins. For any general DM arena of any shiptype.
    killer

    One person is the killer, and all of their shots cause killed players to spec without any message. If a person guesses who they are, they become the killer ... but guess wrong and they are spec'd. When there are two people left, it becomes a showdown, with the next hit spec'ing.
    killrace

    Players race to reach a certain number of kills.
    payback

    If you're killed, you must kill your killer in a short amount of time or you're eliminated. Good for smaller arenas, where it's easier to find players. Use a longer timer with larger arenas.
    pointrace

    Highest number of points after X time wins. For base or other points-based arenas.
    president

    All players entered are randomly set to a number of frequencies, and one player from each frequency is choosen to act as president. This player is given one life, while all the other players on freq (citizens) are given infinite lives. Once the president for that freq has been killed, all players on that freq are given a last death before elimination. Once there is only one president remaining, that freq is declared winner.
    prodem

    For ?go prodem and prodemevol, but can be used anywhere. Kill a lower # ship to promote to that ship. Die to a higher number ship and you're demoted. First to kill another Warbird as a Warbird wins.
    revenge

    Earn more points for killing people who have killed you, and less for killing the same person over and over. Also, you lose points if someone takes vengeance on you. Most points at the end of the timer wins.
    rps

    Rock-paper-scissors (2 player only).
    scramble

    Players race to unscramble a word and guess it. First to unscramble earns points.
    stepelim

    It starts as a normal team deathmatch to a low number of deaths (default 2). Then when one freq is eliminated, the winning team will get split up again in two seperate teams. This continues until only one person is left, the grand champion.
    story

    Similar to acro, but for making a story. The host begins the game with a starting line for the story. Then, players submit their next line in the story, and everyone votes on the best one. The winning line is added to the story. At the end you'll have a 10 line story, and the winner is the person with the most votes across all lines.
    terror

    Normal team deathmatch with a twist. One player is a trollish Terr. If you shoot the Terr, you are eliminated. So the terr tries to be as annoying as possible. Never seen this played but it sounds hilarious. You can also play it with two teams, and each team has their own terr.
    trivia

    Trivia! Answer questions, get points.
    twscript

    An easy script language for making your own events! Check it out for details. Past ERs have created some really cool events with this. No previous programming knowledge required.
    untouchable

    One person is the untouchable. If you kill them, you're spec'd without a message. If you guess who they are, you eliminate the untouchable and become them yourself. (Reverse of killer.)
    victim

    A randomly selected player will hold a bomb. Player with bomb must get certain amount of kills before timer runs out. If timer runs out and player does not have enough kills, he is out, and a new bomber is chosen.
    wipeout

    Players must make a kill within a certain number of seconds. If they don't, they're eliminated. After each "wipeout" the time gets shorter. Last man standing wins.
    wordsinaword (formerly wiaw)

    Word game. At the start of the game a word is displayed. Players must make other words using the letters of the initial word.
    zombies

    Probably the definitive event of TW. Get killed by a zombie, become one. Used to host zombies, bug, ghoulgames, fishies, and many others. Can be used creatively as well.

    Unused Modules

    These modules are broken, incomplete, or they are specific-arena modules and their arenas have been forgotten.
