You rise from the light. You remember static giving birth to you, as if you were apart of some ancient piece of media. Your form is mechanical, metal and rusted. You have 4 metallic claws and a large CRT TV for a body. 3 chords dangle from the front of your screen. You smell of rust and ambition.

Now you need a name or title. . . And some form of sustenance.

( Color palette of creature can be changed if you guys aren't feeling the orange. )

I'm honestly fine with Rusty if we can have our title be my dumb name.
The orange palette unfortunately goes against the joke.

>>3745438
Yeah but copper is orange and also rust blue. Also we don't have to be entirely copper. Just a few bits and bobs.

>>3745441
Maybe we can have our claw bits copper with our main body being crimson.
>>
>>3745444
We could just keep being rusty in the body and eventually just GET a red hood.
>>
>>3745448
Maybe we can have the body be rusted with maroon-ish paint chipped off, then we can get some sort of crimson-y red hood.
Is that good?

You are Rusty! Your 3 little cables dangle gently from the front of your brightly lit static filled screen. You wander around a bit, searching for something. . . Anything. You stumble upon a rabbit observing a pile of metal scraps.

Rusty hungers. . . What do you do to sustain yourself?

> Flesh
Rusty is powered by a bioreactor, and can internally ferment any organic material in order to produce the ion-rich slurry his fuel cells convert to energy. Given that he can ferment any organic material, it sure is weird that he only goes for flesh. There's plants everywhere, Rusty. Oh, Rusty, you're such a silly anomalous robot.

> Machines
Rusty is fascinated with machines. He's a machine, he's pretty sure. Does that mean these others are his siblings? Why aren't they getting up and playing with him? He fed them plenty of delicious meat to fuel their reactors with. Maybe they're sick. Don't worry, sick siblings, Rusty will take care of you until you're better.

Those scraps look very appetizing. . . Rusty shovels the pieces into the three ports in the front of his screen. Occasionally it would pushes more pieces into the bottom of it's body to consume them. A rabbit looks at Rusty curiously as it devours the bits and bobs of deceased machines.

But now. . . You tire of feeding. You now want to collect dreams, thoughts and ambitions of living things. You turn to the rabbit and and plug your three cables into it's fur. The rabbit shakes and seizures before falling over, it's leg twitching. The rabbit breathes softly and you feel satisfied, knowing that the rabbit wishes to infiltrate a local garden. . .

Rusty straps the rabbit down to it's back. The mammal breathes softly, asleep after it's encounter with the living machine(?).

You walk along the soft grass. Your metallic claws clacking gently across the ground as you reach a cliff face. You look up at the large bright orb in the sky, then down to the houses below. There stands a large building to the right, you don't understand the symbols on the top, but it sure is a bright blue.

Any building with lights on are places you can go to.

> Coming from the building with the green lights, you hear the soft playing of an instrument.

> Coming from the building with the purple lights, you hear snoring.

> Coming from the building with red lights, you hear the tapping of buttons.

You begin chipping away at the back door. You punch indents of your shape with the metallic claws. Then you push through, creating a not so subtle "Krssh" noise as you push the wood out and kick it to the side. You take a whiff of the air, smelling the sweet scent of dreams.

Rusty is now inside. It is in a the kitchen, full of appliances like a blender, toaster oven and refrigerator. Beyond that, it can see a dimly lit TV full of static like itself and a soft looking couch.

Anything that requires some sort of power source to operate is a machine you can devour. So things such as remotes, game consoles and household appliances. Scrap is also acceptable. However, the size of the object must be of equal size of smaller for you to consume it.

Consume machines to see if their ability is possible to be used by you.

Before your ascent upstairs, you go into the living room and stare at the TV. The static feels extremely comforting and familiar. You grab the remote and devour slowly, becoming consumed by the presence of your noisy friend.

As soon as Rusty devours the remote, the TV shuts off. It seems like it turned off the television all on it's own.

You now begin climbing up the stairs, following the sound of the pleasant snoring.

You stand at the door.

You use your rusted claws to slowly open the door. You push it slightly ajar and stare at the sleeping flesh. All you smell is the sweet succulent taste of dreams, hopes and ambition.

Without a second thought, you creep across the floor. Your claws tap quietly across the carpeted floor.

Now is Rusty's time to strike. . . How does it steal the human's dreams?

You crawl up the flesh-being's comfort block. Your metallic claws bounce on the surface slightly. You tap it's head, revealing a set of confused eyes. The confusion turns to fear as your screen radiates light and oppressive static. You feel it. You feel this being's ambitions, passions and dreams seep into you.

Rusty feels comfortable knowing that being a carpenter is a fun career choice. Oh, and English is a language.

The flesh-being, known as Alex. lays there in bed. Paralyzed by fear, and hopelessness. Their skin even looks paler.

You speak to the rabbit, who appears to be more docile towards you. Your speakers spark to life, "Hello Hare!" The rabbit tilts it's head, confused.

"I am Rusty." You declare. "I like dreams." You add.

Rusty continues to babble words to the rabbit. It seems to provide it some comfort. Rusty eventually falls asleep on the carpet. However, as it drifts into sleep, the rabbit utters a phrase. "Beware of the blue type."

Rusty raises from it's slumber. It is a new day and time to explore the rest of the small town.

You set your sights on the building with the rapid button mashing. Your screen glistens and glows as you stare out the window and into red glass. A flesh-being with short hair and a set of headphones is playing with some-sort of device. You feel your ports drip, thinking about the machines you will devour. If this flesh-being has one interesting machine, they probably have more. . .

You crawl out of the house and towards the back door. A small plastic sheet covers a TV - sized hole and you decides to crawl. The moment your metallic calls clank against the cold tile floor, a fuzzy beast with floppy ears growls at you. The rest of the room is covered in carpet and a large flat television hangs against the wall. A young flesh-being stares at you for a moment, somewhat concerned.

You think really hard and feel the remote's functions in your body. Boop. You turn to the animal channel, which is conveniently playing a dog ad. "Woof woof! I love Super Blue Mart!" A fuzzy beast on the TV barks. The other fuzzy beast averts it's attention to the TV. However, the flesh-being is still looking at you.

Scale the outside, if possible! Those metal legs should be adequate for climbing a nearby tree by impaling Rusty's way up. Then the next thing is to find a branch that can support Rusty's weight and have him leap across somehow - which I doubt is possible, since Rusty is a box with legs and might not have enough spring power in whatever mechanical joints he has inside, if any.

You scale the organic structure. Your metallic pincers pierce the organic structure's tough exterior as you climb up it. You finally find a sturdy limb to rest yourself on. Your claws pitter patter across the limb, almost to the edge of it.

You look at the town, getting a view of house with green lights and a couple other buildings. One of which being a large block with multiple windows blaring these oppressive bright blue lights. "Super Blue Mart" is spelled in bright neon lights across the top. Your attention settles back down onto the soft crimson window.

You watch the fleshbeing mash buttons and look angry. Occasionally they would speak into a machine.

Reach over and try to tap the outside of the window with your cables. If the flesh-being looks over, wave hello!

Might be best to save rolling for after the votes are called, if you care about rolls influencing votes.
