Hello Steemians,

I think it's time to officially introduce my STEEM Bot Schopenhauer - A bot built for the fantastic, one-of-a-kind Interactive Battle Tournament on Steemit, which is founded and hosted by @lordnigel.

Those of you who have participated in the Battle Tournament before are already well-acquainted with Schopenhauer, to those of you who haven't - let me introduce him to you!

Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer was a philosopher, and one of the gloomiest kind too, exploring the dark void of absurdities and sufferings that humans are born into and have to endure during there short time on amongst the living. It is rather astounding that he found new meaning after he joined Steemit, and discovered joys of living throught the most fantastic Interactive Game on the STEEM blockchain, in the company of awesome players and the warmth of it's benevolent founder @lordnigel.

Interactive Battle Tournament

If you haven't participated in the tounament yet - clearly you are missing out. Were just about to kick of IBT#4 and you are most welcome to enrol here.

You will get to fight evil but lame wizards like this one:

Or rather clumsy one like this one here:

Oh, did I mention that you can win prizes every round and also the Grand Prize if you become Champion? Yep, even more awesomeness.

Schopenhauer User Guide

Okay let's get to the point. The Schopenhauer bot will now cover a range of commands and facilitate the execution of dice rolled attacks in the IBT #4.

These are the new commands and Hero Classes that you wil be able to use:

Command: !picksomepockets

Positive items:

@doctorcrypto has prepared more awesome items for us and I will update the post to include them aswell. Probably before the IBT#4 lauch - yay!

The collected items add or deduct points from your attack roll and stick for one round. Positive items can also be purchased against Trophy-Tokens from @lordnigels shop.

Confused?

You can summon a list of available commands and a short description with the following command:

!listofcommands

Important! To summon the bot the comment has to start with an !exclamation mark and only contain the exact command. Otherwise the bot will ignore the command.

Well that's it guys! Schopenhauer is very fair and he loves to watch you guys fight monsters and wizards an all kinds of foes that stand between you and the Champion prize. However, if your attack is clumsy as hell, he won't leave without commenting on you poor performance. He is quite vocal like that - You have warned!

Nice work! This round #4 is going to be great!

Question: Do all bot commands have to be in their own comment?

Well hello there meister. Yes all commands have to be a separate comment and spellt correctly. It is an exact match. The reason for this is to prevent the bot from being summoned in a random conversation outside the Battle Tournament.

Understood.. This is gonna be awesome!

Great changes! Looking forward to trying them out in the next round :)

Hell yeah! :)

That's really cool Nick. You seem to be leveling up! ;)

This Tournament round will be...no is already super fun. Schopenhauer is now able to automate a lot of the gameplay :)

Nice work mate - Your a top bot maker for sure - IBT#4 is gonna be awesome!!!! nice to know something personal about our bot as well hehe.

Awesome dude! This is crazy, crazy exciting.

Did the call to Gobbo from Schopenhauer work okay?
Also, if you don't mind me being super pedantic, you misspelt 'Lightning' in the magicblast command.

This is all amazing though, such an exciting time to be a Steemy dude.

Did it? well let's find out:D I think it has failed once before...

Has it ever worked? Can bots call bots in an all-out-bot-frienzy?

I dont see why it shouldnt I'll go check!

Wololo!
