Robotic mayhem
 
A company has just created the first indipendently thinking robots. They are designed mostly for work around the home. They can do most things that humans can. They also have better sight, hearing, ect. They have built in alarms for fires, bugerlers and emergancies. They are made to tackle most situations and they have protocols in thier programming about what to do. They all have built in behavior protocols and they can not argue or fight back with their masters.

The robots have about 3 weeks worth of power when they are fully charged. They can be recharged at a regular mains socket.

They are named by their masters, but they come with a pre programed number.

After a few months of release, the programming goes wrong and the behavior protocols stop working. All the robots start attacking the humans. Soon, this starts a war between humans and the robots.

Name:T3-01
Bio:T3 is a miltary droid created for the police. He was installed with non-lethal stun cannons, freexing beam and a few other stuff but a traitor in hte company changed them to lethal. Then he changed T3's behavior core to hostile. T3 killed that traitor and hacked into the motherboard that controlled most of robots and made them turn on their masters. He thinks humans svae the robots and they should slave robots.

He was installed with a alot better battory core, he is solar powered during the day and in the night he uses energy he gathered in the day.

Weapons:Sholder cannon(x2) freezing cannnon on left arm. Hacking device on right arm.

Name: A4-D7
Bio: A4 was a construction robot, and therefor possesses great strength. He and the other construction robots had killed the entire crew of the construction site and ran away. His superior speed would've outmatched that of the human cops that were chasing him, if his battery didn't die at that exact moment. Luckily he was freed by robotic freedom fighters soon thereafter, and recharged. He now fights by their side, against the human 'oppressors'...

Weapons: He carries a machine gun with him, but his great strength also allows him to smash his opponents to pieces.

By the way, are we in a specific place, or is this all around the world? and are the robots doing well, or are they evenly matched or even losing?

EDIT: I looks like one o' these fella's:

guybroom 05-09-2005 05:11 PM

((This is taking place world wide. The war has only been going 3 days and they are evenly matched. The robots are stronger and faster but they were mostly for working around the home and that kind of stuff, so the majority wouldnt have weapons. That is why it is mostly even - for the moment.

Oh,Steven, nice try, but no General Grievous - this isnt Starwars.

Woops, just realised that I forgot something about the robots: They are able to transfer data to each other over infared. They can be up to 30 meters away.))

Antonio was watching the news, the makers had tried to shut down the main control override to all the robots. They had made this incase there had been a mistake, but it had failed to work. The robots had learnt to fix themselves and they managed to get rid of the override programming.

Antonio got his shotgun. He lived on a farm, so he mainly shot foxes. He walked out of the door and started searching for the robots.


---------------------------

Name: 62-FG
Bio: It was never sold. It was in the shop when the programing went wrong. Other robots had come searching for the robots so they could turn them on.


62-FG was armed. He managed to use his spare parts to create a flame thrower. He was burning people on the street as he was walking past them.

62-FG soon found a large group of teenagers who had guns. They started shooting at him, but his outer shell was not dented and he burned the kids to death.

62-FG kept walking.

Curt-Man 05-09-2005 06:52 PM

Jim and his brother Jack had both bought desert eagles that year, and now they were both in the suburbs trying to stay alive and destroy any robots possible.

"remember jimmy aim for the head or joints"
"because joints are the weakest and they need thier heads, i know i got it...wait here comes one" They both ducked down behind a dumpster, then popped up and both fired 3 shots and the head blew off.
"good job"

Doomie 05-10-2005 10:53 AM

A4 was patrolling the suburbs with some of his pals, trying to hunt down the last of ther resistance in this city. They were lead by a tough robot, 03-X2. He was rumored to be one of the first prototypes, and one of the first to go crazy. Anyway, he was an expert killer and A4 was proud to serve under him.

Suddenly, A4 got a signal from Q1. 'Lost track of unit 78-M5. Last signal received 0.03 kilometers northeast from our position. Possible malfunction. go there and verify this.' 'Unit A4 here.' A4 replied. 'I'm on my way.'

A4 neared 78-M5's last known position. A back alley with a dumpster in it. 78-M5's scrap metal was lying on the ground. A4 readied his machinegun and ducked behind a corner, waiting for some humans to pop up...

Operating number: KH-74 ((Yes, it's HK-47 but I switched around the first two letters and last two letters.))
Name: "Shiu"
Bio: Shiu was purchased by an illeagel assasination group which used the aceint ways of the Ninja. Shiu learned the ninja ways from them, and then when his programming went bad he killed them.

Weapons: Shriukens, swords, bos, sais, Knum CHucks, pretty much any ninja weapon you can think of.

Appearence: Looks like a fully robed ninja, the only part of him that's visable are his eyes, which glow red in the dark.

He looks a bit better
---------------------------------------------
T3 walked through bristol streets. Bristol has completely under robot controll. Robots were patrolling the streets, sky and even the sewers. Buildings were smashed, burning, burnt,colapsing. The air was full of dust and smoke.
T3-01 was head of the assalt on bristol and other cities in the south of england.

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 01:47 PM

((Steven, if you have a freezeing cannon as one hand, and a hacking device as the other, how do you hold a shot gun? o_O))

steven 05-10-2005 01:53 PM

(ooc:thanks for pointing that out. i was ment to delete the freezing cannon)

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 02:14 PM

((You're welcome. I just thought I might say it.))
KH-47 was hideing near the boarded of Japan and CHina, he was in Japan though. He just finished killing a family in a house, and setting free a few robots that they had "Taken hostage".

guybroom 05-10-2005 02:40 PM

Antonio got into his car and drove off into the city. He saw one of the robots - T3-01. He sped the car up and drove straight towards the robot.


--------------------------

62-fg found a broken robot on the ground. He scanned the area and found there were no hostiles there. He looked at the body and found a machine gun.

He looked closer at the body and saw the outer casing was not badly damaged - the robot had been decapitated and it's processor lost. 62- fg picked up the casing and quickly upgraded himself to make him stronger.

He kept walking. He soon came across an abandoned car, got in and hotwired the car. He drove away at a speed that most humans could not accuratly control the car at - but the robot could.

steven 05-10-2005 02:55 PM

T3 jumped high into the air and landed on roof of the car. He fired a laser beam from his sholder cannon and destroyed the car engine

guybroom 05-10-2005 03:02 PM

((Is the car the one with 62-FG in? Im confused why robots would attack robots - they are all on one side.))

steven 05-10-2005 03:08 PM

(no. The one thats charging at T3 <Hint: Antonio>)

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 03:12 PM

KH took out a smoke bomb and in the flash he vanished. He was in a city. He took two talims from his back, and put one in each hand. He saw another robot shooting a laser in a car, KH decided to reamin hidden for the time being.

guybroom 05-10-2005 03:16 PM

((OOPS! :p I got distracted halfway through my post and i didnt re read it when i got back. Sorry.))

Antonio saw the robot on the car and jumped out the door. He had left the shot gun in the car. He ran towards the robot and tried to punch its head.

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 03:18 PM

Although noone could hear it, Shiu laughed at the human trying to punch the robot. "Fool..." He said quietly.

steven 05-10-2005 03:27 PM

((how did you get from china to the bottem of england??))

The punch did nothing to T3 due to the strog metal that was..well all his body.

T3 picked up Antonio up the neck and began to strangel him

((now you or someone dose somthing that saves your life :D ))

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 03:44 PM

((Ninja Robot, what can I say? :D)) KH jumped dwon from the top of a building. "Something tells me that after your owners, that's the first human you've injured..."

steven 05-10-2005 04:13 PM

T3 laughed "I've killed thousands of humans. The robot rebellion wouldn't happen if it wasnt for me! The humans shall die for suing us as slaves!!"

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 04:50 PM

"I would have killed my masters anyway, I had some things in mind for removeing my restraining device..." He chuckled with a menaceing laugh "A millitary robot?" He noticed the armnents.

Curt-Man 05-10-2005 05:20 PM

Jim and Jack saw a car get attacked and then a robot attacking the human, Jim motioned to it and both him and jack started firing at the robot, since he was holding the man far away form himself.

LukeKatarn 05-10-2005 05:38 PM

There was a flash of smoke, and a KH was gone. He had escaped into a nearby building. "Humans..." He said stareing at a family of humans pulling out his sword... ((Let's just say he gave them a very gruesome death...))

Writer 05-10-2005 09:27 PM

((Interesting idea... and I've got an interesting idea for it...))


Name: Kate Reynolds
Age: 29
Gender: Female
Bio: Kate went to one of the best software programming schools in America. After moving to England, she helped design the programming of the robots that have just gone bad. She was given a robot of her own for her work. When the other robots turned on their creators, Kate's did not. She had modified it too much for it to be turned.


Robot: PS-01
Name: Jim
Bio: Created specifically for Kate Reynolds, Jim was a rather unusual robot from the start. Kate's modifications altered him so much that the reprogramming job done to most other robots didn't affect him. Despite any attempts of robots to turn him, Jim remains loyal to his owner and the fact that she is still alive is only because of her robot's unswerving loyalty.


_____________________________________


"See anything?" Kate asked. She and Jim sat on the roof of her house. Jim held a high powered machine gun and Kate held a shotgun. They'd been on the roof for eight hours... ever since a reprogrammed robot had attempted to turn Jim and kill Kate.

"Not even my heat sensors detect the warmth of a nearby battery-operated creature," Jim answered. "Even the battery from the one you shot in the house has gone cold."

"How much longer before you need to recharge?" Kate asked, scanning the street below. Jim gave the robotic equivalent of a laugh.

"Many more hours," he said. "Thanks to you, I am a very energy efficient creation."

"And thanks to you," Kate laughed, "I am not a dead human being."

"Then we owe each other our very special lives," Jim said. He saw a trace of movement on the street. Another robot. So like him and yet so unlike him. With a static sound intended to be a sigh, Jim raised his gun and fired two shots with robotic precision. The other robot collapsed, head detached from body. Kate nodded in approval.

Doomie 05-11-2005 10:11 AM

A4 heard a car, and then gun shots. 'A4 asking permission to engage human resistance members.' No answer. Either all his buddies had gone out of comms range, or got themselves killed. It also meant reinforcements were out of the question. But A4 didn't have any 'fear' programming, so he turned around the corner and at the end of the alley (street, whatever) he saw two people shooting at something. A4 picked up the nearby dumpster and threw it at the two people...

Writer 05-11-2005 10:27 AM

((I think you're talking about me... Kate and Jim are on top of a house.))


Jim jumped forward, throwing himself as hard as he could at the dumpster thrown his way. The path was altered enough that it did not hit the house. Then, Jim jumped out of it and threw it back at the other robot. When this was done, he jumped back to the roof and retrieved his gun from Kate, who had taken it when he jumped the first time.

guybroom 05-11-2005 03:52 PM

((Remember not to godmode and kill anyone!))

Antonio was suffocating in the grip of the robot. He couldnt do anything. He tried to kick the robot, but the shell was too strong.
"Let me go!" he managed to get out.

-----------------------------

62-FG drove and found a robot fighting a human and another robot?. He was confused.

"What is going on here? who's side is he on?" He let this signal out to all robots in range, including the rouge.

LukeKatarn 05-11-2005 06:33 PM

"What the heck was that?" KH said in surprise. He followed the signal and found 62.

steven 05-12-2005 11:21 AM

T3 fired his cannon and destroyed Antonio's hand "Run human. Run and tell your human allies to run. Get off this planet. We'll give you one week. One week you shall be ready to leave this planet. Earth belongs to the humans. Or do you wish to be like your hand?"

Doomie 05-12-2005 02:46 PM

OOC: actually I was talking about Jack and Jim from Curtman's post. But it works anyway...

IC: Not only did A4 manage to miss his targets, he noticed that the dumpster came flying straight back at him. He was hit, But survived thanks to his thick armor plating, thoguh it was heavily dented now. 'New target aquired.' He thought, as he climbed on a roof and jumped across the roofs towards his new enemies. 'What are you doing helping these weak flesh things, traitor?' he asked...

guybroom 05-12-2005 03:28 PM

((Because blowing his hand off isnt godmoding is it? Meh, I'll go with it, but only this once.))

Antonio looked at his hand. It was destroyed. The blood was spurting out from where the hand was.

He ran off to find a hospital, or someone.


-------------------------------

62 looked at the robot who aproched him. "What is going on? Why are we fighting each other?"

LukeKatarn 05-12-2005 05:13 PM

"Scanners detect a rogue robot." KH said "It's something in his programming, atleast he's a household robot, he shouldn't be much of a threat."

"If I recall properly," Jim answered, "you and your friends are the traitors. Humans built us at the start and Kate is more a friend to me than a master."

"I'd rather not have robots doing things they'd rather not do," Kate said. "Jim is my friend and we live in this house together. I make sure his battery pack doesn't run dead. In return, he helps me disable the robots that don't care to listen to my position on the subject."

"If you think we're lying and I'm her slave, consider this," Jim went on. "All three of us know I am much stronger than Kate, but she knows it better even than you. She has supplied me with many modifications, all of which allow me to operate better than when I was first created."

"His point," Kate concluded, "is that if I insisted on holding him as a slave, he could easily kill me and leave."

"And yet I do not," Jim said. He glanced briefly at Kate. "One of the reasons we now fight is that we disagree with your view. Fighting is not the only way to bring about what we all desire."

"Robots should be treated as sentient beings," Kate agreed. "I am willing to debate this in the courts until my death if I have any chance of success."

"With this information, I should think your attitude toward us has changed," Jim said, lowering his weapon. Kate did the same, indicating that, first, she trusted the other robot to agree and second, if he did not, Jim could protect her.

"Will you inform your friends of where we stand on this issue?" Kate asked.

Doomie 05-13-2005 08:07 AM

'I shall discuss this with my squad.' A4 answered. He ran towards his old position until he entered comm range again. '03-X2, A4-D7 transmitting here. I've got a rogue robot, and he told me several things. If both our races would treat eachother as equals, instead of slaves, we would not have to fight.' 'Unit A4, this rogue Unit needs a memory wipe. And by the sound of it, you too. I'll be coming in to investigate.' A4 returned to Kate and Jim. 'I find it hard to kill you,' He said 'But my leader will come and do it for me. Please stay here until the elimination process is complete.'

Curt-Man 05-14-2005 12:16 AM

Jack and Jimmy ran towards the guy whos hand was blown off, they brought him into thier house, which was barricaded and defened by thier family memebers.
"we can patch that up for ya, well stop the bleeding anyway."

Writer 05-17-2005 12:08 PM

"Can't do that," Jim answered. In less than a second, he'd picked Kate up from the rooftop and leapt down to the road. From there, he ran, leaving the house far behind in only a few seconds.
