Bots are fun. Bots are great. Bots are invaluable. Friend Computer says so. The Big Book of Bots details these tireless servants of Alpha Complex. Now you too can have these marvelous, mechanical marvels with their often completely inappropriate programming more heavily involved in your campaign.
And remember that they are valuable Computer property - just because the assigned warbot has gone dangerously berserk does not mean it can be just blasted to pieces as someone will be held responsible for the damage caused. Remember: Bots are fun!
