Freefall 2021

When robot factories go to war

We love you, Rants Freely!
My job is to make sure parasites get established on this planet. I know a little bit about getting the news on your side.
Now we need a spokes-person.
My captain is Sam Starfall. It would be best if I stay in the background. However…
I do not read organic expressions well and yours still worry me.

When robot factories go to war

I am conducting an investigation. I can not be a spokes machine. I do not wish to bi-cycle my thought processes.
I'll be the spokesman!
See? Bennie can be the spokesman.
I'll offer shrimp. Krill all humans! Krill all humans!
Very well. Your point has been made. I will speak to the news human.

In the original -I will offer crawfish, krill (looks like kill-kill). Quotes Bender Rodriguez (Warg).
Also reminds me of a very cute GBA game “Sigma Star Saga” with alien Krills (Robot Spike)

When robot factories go to war

And that's how a major conflict was averted by two fast thinking robots, a veterinarian, and his dog. This is Rants Freely, and that's the way I say it is. Good night.
Sawtooth! You big dummy! You should have come to my shop!
The first major broadcast with a robot spokesman and he does it stark naked!

When robot factories go to war

I have spoken to the newsman. Shall we continue our investigation?
Actually, we should split up and each go to a factory.
Do you think we'll find more clues there?
Well, that.
And we still have the parts needed to fix their fusion reactors.
I suppose it would slow things down if we needed to carry a battery and jumper cables in order to ask our questions.

Stay in touch while you're at the blue factory. I'll head to the red factory and install the new logic board.
You should let the local tech bots install the board.
I can do it. I have enough power to get to the logic room and I've already plotted the most efficient route.
Still, you should let the bots who can fit through doors rather than needing to push through walls install the part.
But I like pushing through walls.

Chuck Norris has clearly blessed him with his grace… (KALDYH)

Freefall 2026

When robot factories go to war

Everything's dark. No navigation signals. Landing by G.P.S. and hoping the maps are accurate.
Uhm, no worries. We're okay. Although the physical structure of an unmarked shed has been altered to match the map.

When robot factories go to war

No lights. Where is everyone?
Their fusion reactor is down. They're in minimum power mode.
It's creepy.
Creepy? This is twilight. Magic hour. Prime hunting time.
I suppose creepiness depends a lot on whether you're predator or prey.
Come on! There's a shortcut through a shadowy alley up here!

When robot factories go to war

I caught these two trying to drain the batteries of a sleeping robot.
A waffle iron and an automatic toaster!
They're natural enemies, competing for the same breakfast resources! Things must be serious if they're working together.
And they travel in packs, don't they?
Shipments. A group of waffle irons is known as a shipment.

I wanted to add a hungry headcrab squeak here, but spared the reader's nerves (Robot Spike)

Waffle irons. Toasters. Look. Look. Right. That's sorted. Off with you now.
Maple syrup. Shows them we're friendlies.
Do you always carry maple syrup with you?
Of course. This is the technological wilderness! Don't they teach you any survival skills at all?

Present ID to
the scanner. Doors will open automatically
for authorized personnel.
Does anyone else get the feeling they never planned for a complete loss of power?
