Save Your Favourite Bots!

Post by Nymphetamine » Fri Apr 12, 2013 5:19 pm

i'm looking to consolidate the bots in BDI. With modern channel services, especially those on Darkmyst, there's really no need to maintain an extensive botnet in the channel, any longer. Unless we're just aiming to inflate our channel numbers, but we can dual client and log on from our smartphones and tablets for that.

So! Here's the vote to save your two favourite bots, as per Pat (Kylus)'s recommendation, we'll be consolidating them down to two. This poll will be running for 2 weeks.

Why two, you may ask. The amount of scripts for the bar/menu features, the news and weather commands (and any other commands that we might add in, such as restoring the !rules or !help commands, or adding in the third person RP scripts from whichever bots are no longer present), and logging will overtax a single Eggdrop and can cause lag.

Bot refresher course:

Dulcina: Resident barmaid, and contains the !order command. Also wields a mean frying pan and is probably the richest person in Arangoth. Reacts very violently to orders of bloodwyne. Also hosts the BDI dice script, though we used the built in one with ChanServ in the last tournament.

Orwell: Drache town crier and drunk. He handles a lot of the heavy lifting for the channel in the form of the !news and !weather commands, as well as the clock tower. Used to mumble about a stone fish. His RP script is still broken.

Paetines: One of the priests at the Royal Church. His RP script is the only one functioning. He is often times mistaken as a player these days for his occasional RP lines.

Rantan: Technically owns the Black Dragon Inn, and serves as the cook. His RP script is still broken, but he does have one.

Woolly: The Dire Sheep who makes his way in the form of eating GodPCs. His RP script used to activate on key words, a lot of the time when people were mentioning demons, evil, etc.

Murphy: A recent addition on my part, named after my parrot and serves as the channel logger. I mention him only because he is in fact a bot being run in the channel, but as the most recent and least historied, he is unlikely to win any popularity contests. He is not typically apart of the original BDI botnet, however.


Just because the bots are removed, it doesn't mean anything is happening to their NPCs. The characters as just as important to the channel as ever, and will be maintained in their own place on the wiki.

Poll closed!

Dulcina and Orwell are saved. And due to the protest just now in the channel, so is Woolly. We'll keep three instead.

RIP Paetines and Rantan, you have served us well.
