If you're looking for new bots to torture your players with (especially if you have a couple of intelligent players willing to play these bots!) then here are a pair of fun-lovin' mechanicals for you. For full rules, consult the Bot Abuser's Guide.
Size: Small Armor: P2 Circuits: 3 / 3 Bump: 1 Stability: 2 Macho: 2 Hands: Extensible Graspers W/Small Grabbers Dex Base: 0 Str Base: 0 Carrying: 10 kg.

Crow/Ts are usually used to replace an Equipment Guy in a Troubleshooter Team. Crows are happy-go-lucky repairbots that try to help in any way possible. They also like to make jokes.

Secret Society: Corporganic Circuits ======== 1-3 Head Input, Output, Radio Receive 4-20 Body Everything Else Heads are easily changable; if this robot is assigned to a group, they will usually get extra heads. If the head is hit for a Kill or Vaporize result, any Video/Audio tapes in use are destroyed. Secret Parts (may only be known to "Friend Computer") ============ Retractable Force Sword in Torso Radio Controlled Override Remote Controlled Self Destruct Scrambled Resistor Asimovs (3 1 5 2 4) Personality Mod: Tom Servo Software ======== RAM: 6 ROM: 9 Override: 1 StealthBot ROM Oratory 8 Force Sword 8 Stealth 8
Tom Surbots are usually included in a Troubleshooter team to substitute for the C&RO or when the High Programmer behind the mission suspects trickery. Most Troubleshooters do not know about the Force Sword; some do not know that the bot can transmit Video and Audio.
Make sure the player playing a Surbot makes quips. Lots of quips. Enough to make the Troubleshooters shoot him.
