Ones that monitor “runs”, ones that monitor duel games and record stats like deaths and deaths by whom, ones that organize that channel to organize a clan/guild and memberships [Non-clan members get auto-kicked and members get a ranking system], and most often, trivia bots. At the time, in an effort to keep the games alive, I began working on a way to allow us to play across the net, complete with a chat section, character sheets, and a “DM” function that allowed the current DM to see all necessary info on the other logged in characters.
That being said, I’ve seen chat bots do enough things to know that it’s possible for someone to create a campaign and role play bot. DM Bot: Upon being attacked, the flying creature, an Imp, descends upon you and attacks. Unfortunately, due to the time it took me to get the project to a “marginally functional” state, the games died anyway, and I ended up abandoning the project.
If you know of someone who would be willing to continue with the project, let me know, and I’ll get in touch with them to set things up.
The problem with that is that the two bots would need to communicate with eachother.
Because the DM bot needs to know when the battle is over and continue to the next event [Question].
We got together and tried to think of ways to play online with eachother.
Each person came up with some pretty good, but tedious ideas.
Bear in mind that it doesn’t have a working bot at this point in time (I wasn’t involved in chatbots at all when I was working on this), but it wouldn’t be difficult to integrate one into the project. Building a bot of that nature from scratch (just the responses and conversation…
NOT the interface) is a huge job, unless you want the bot to be nothing more than a random damage generator.I have seen trivia bots that have more than one correct answer, so no doubt, there can be many results recorded to these “Questions”... /Atk = an attack @Target # = an attack must have a target.The bot has every possible target recorded as Target 1, Target 2, Target 3 Etc, and will list what every target is if there are more than one [Just as if a trivia bot would list different categories]. This will be the hard part I suppose, as it would have to know what options you have and be able to record what adjustments there are to those options.If you know of someone who would be willing to continue with the project, let me know, and I’ll get in touch with them to set things up. Many, many years ago, I used to play Rifts® with a group of my friends, but sadly, we each went our separate ways.At the time, in an effort to keep the games alive, I began working on a way to allow us to play across the net, complete with a chat section, character sheets, and a “DM” function that allowed the current DM to see all necessary info on the other logged in characters.For instance DM Bot: You come to a crossroads, you can take the right [Command: Right] path where the fog builds or you can go left [Command: Left] where you hear roars in the distance.
