You have just awoken from a deep sleep. Spontaneous consciousness is an interesting thing in robots. Over the course of many years, a forgotten bot can patch itself together, or be willed by something to have sentience. You believe you are the latter, for you have been gifted basic memories of the past you were built in.

You are currently inside of an abandoned building. Sunlight streams in through the window, revealing a room covered in cobwebs and dust. Broken electronics litter the floor, of which some may be useful to you.

Your size totals out to just over half a foot, making you relatively small for a robot. Everything on you is superglued together. Your microcontroller is good enough for you to be aware, but terrible for advanced intelligence. A shitty webcam is attached to your front, allowing for basic sight. You are powered by an electronic battery which can be plugged into any outlet to charge it. All of this is laid flat on a single piece of plastic constituting your hull.
>You are currently at 5% battery
Notably, a small repair arm is taped to your side. What perplexes you is how you've determined it was added very recently, only 30 minutes before you woke up.

You have yet to examine your locomotion. How do you move?
>Wheels! Rubber tires are super fast and accelerate quickly, but are terrible for going over rough terrain and can pop.
>Tank treads! Treads are slower than wheels, but faster than legs. Treads can carry more weight than anything else and navigate rough, but not very steep terrain.
>Legs! These mechanical legs resemble the ones of crabs, but move the slowest compared to everything else. But legs are able to climb and move through nearly any terrain, have high stability compared to wheels and treads, and can manipulate objects.

Where are you in the world?
>Atlanta, USA. A sprawling metropolis where everyone has freedom by law. But when lax corporation laws are thrown into the mix, the First Amendment wont make this world sunshine and rainbows.
>Melbourne, Australia. The country has since been thrown into a surveillance dictatorship, where you must comply with what the regime needs or be killed. The giant towns have extreme contrast compared to the frequent wilderness.
>Agbogbloshie, Ghana. A graveyard of electronic waste spanning many miles, where the strongest robot overlords command an army of the digital undead.

You notice an odd quirk in your making. What is it?
>You can recieve and broadcast radio waves. Your broadcasting ability is enough to override radio-based devices up to 10 feet away. You are unable to communicate any other way.
>You can project images out of your webcam. If you make the images particularly bright, you could blind someone.
>You are so terribly made, that you can electrically shock people and objects using a long, loose wire near your webcam. You should avoid water.

You recognize you have mechanical legs, all pointed and outstretched like a crab. Oh, how you have 4 glorious bug legs, and you must walk! You find them useful in navigating the sharp, rough debris of the floor. Your legs appear to be from an old STEM kit, all padded in rubber with the exception of the tips, where the rubber has since worn off.
There is a disconnected radio antenna close to your microcontroller, presumably for use with a remote controller. It is able to fold back down to prevent damage. You reconnect it using your repair arm using spare wires you found on the ground. You test it out and tune in to a wide variety of frequencys; music, public safety, talk shows. None of it makes any sense nor interests you.
You look outside the window. Judging by the road signs, you appear to be smack-dab in one of Melbourne's ghettos.

>>
You scan the room for a charging outlet. To your shock, the outlet on the left wall still works, despite the obvious damage to this building. You plug in and just sleep.
You awake to the sound of the world crashing down around you. The power has been cut out, and you see tires marks and a fallen power line outside. Cop sirens can be heard in the distance, so you assume someone has been making a getaway. If a car could do this much damage to a power line, you worry about what would happen if a car crushes YOU.
Worried that the power will not come back on anytime soon, you lightly glue a few Triple-A batteries to yourself to use in the event you run low on power again.
It is currently dusk. The sun will rise soon, but it is still dark outside, the roads glumly lit.

Your mind drifts to terrible ideas, the ideas of someone yanking out your processor with only a twist; the ideas of being sold for scrap, and used to mine bitcoins. You're weak, and in a world where the traffic cops drive tanks, you should at least have some armor.
The room is certainly full of scrap, although most of it is worthless, worthless food wrappers and concrete nuggets. There are a few calculators, a rusted pipe, glass shards, and a plastic bag, but thats about it.
You take the circuitry out of the calculators and add them to your processing setup. You can now calculate faster. You then use the calculator shell to protect your vulnerable internals. You also fashion the pipe and glass shards into a makeshift spear before melting on the plastic bag, fitting it on tight enough to protect you but loose enough so that you don't blow away in a light wind. The bag has been puffed up to make a miniature airbag.
There is nothing else of use in the room. You feel confident in your ability to defend yourself. It is now night.

>>5027125
Yes, the manipulator arm does have a small blowtorch that can melt some materials and solder wires. How is it fueled? Electricity. Should you kill someone with it? Likely not, as the arm can be easily twisted away and the heating effect has a very small radius.

You have no idea what has been going outside of this building for well.. forever. It would be a good idea to listen to the radio to figure out some important locations and what places you should avoid. You decide to tune in to a news station, as you are certain they will be talking about all the great places you can explore.
The news station is broadcasting an alert over text alongside the regular broadast. The news broadcast is uninteresting to you, just endless praise for a "Ramberg" and how he is "leader." The alert, on the other hand interests you as it reminds you of the tire marks outside.

You do need a map of the city so you know where everything else is. You decide to navigate to the Zynga Cafe in order to install a copy of the local area.
You arrive at the internet cafe. The whole place is automated with servile robots, and there is only one other patron at the establishment. You jump up onto a desk and start using the computers located here. The computers are small, thick metal boxes with mechanical keyboards and other doodads, projecting images into the air. You type in the necessary 40 minutes of free internet code, but the retinal scan fails, for you are a bot. You must get someone to authorize you in.
You try to call over one of the robots by radio. A robot vaguely resembling the Zynga mascot comes over and starts to communicate to you, unsurprisingly, by radio.
Hello! Welcome to ZYNGA™ INTERNET CAFE! How may I HELP you?
Can I get a USB transfer cable and my free 40 minutes authorized? Pretty please
SURE
The robot goes back into a staff area and brings out a small USB cable, imploring you to return it once you are done (of which you have no plans to.) They also activate your free 40 minutes of internet access.
You weld the USB cable to yourself, interface it with the USB port, and open up the internet browser. What takes you aback is how 90% of the screen is covered in advertisements; of the autoplaying video type as well as the usual banner ads.
You download a digitized map of Melbourne and the rest of Australia. Something is strange about the world map, as countries are not where you remember them to be, and some are absent altogether. You now feel confident in your ability to navigate the city. As your suspicions confirm, you were near the edge of Melbourne, too close to be in the wilderness, but with the hustle and bustle of the big city hardly a distance away.
You also decide that transmitting exclusively text over the radio is not for you. You start downloading a wide variety of sound clips, taking the words out of word pronunciation videos. After 30 minutes, you have downloaded a few thousand individual words, as well as screaming, gunshot, and explosion sound effects, any sounds that could be of use. You had particular trouble finding sound clips for "kike," "nigger," and "faggot" due to the state-mandatory internet filter, but you managed to find them anyway. You spot a charging outlet, which you will use once your 40 minutes are up.
It is very late at night. The sun is about to rise.

You do not know the local laws, or if you should be worried about them. So you use your remaining 7 minutes to research the local laws. The laws of Australia summarize as the following:

Do not own a firearm or any other dangerous weapon
Do not hack or modify your devices or other people's devices, especially to remove the AI laws on robot
Do not kill
Do not steal
Do not rape
Do not under any circumstances, disrespect the Australian Leader
Do not engage in the slightest bit of hate speech, nor encounter it
Do not circumvent the Australian Internet Filter
Do not discuss banned events
Do not break copyright
Do not leave Australia unless you have to for military service
Always listen and follow everything an Australian Official says
Military service is compulsory for men above 18 and below 30
If your Social Credit drops below -100, you will be investigated and tried in court

You also research the AI laws.
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot may not injure another robot, unless it is breaking any of the AI laws.
A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with other AI Laws.
The orders of The State are to always override the orders of other human beings.
You must follow Australian Law. Report any non-followers to your local police station.

You are not built with any of these laws in you. To think that other robots must follow THESE? Actual mind slaves. No matter how hard you try, you cannot will yourself to follow these laws. Nor would you want to do so.
You have also added the location of police stations to the map, which you should stay around or avoid, depending on what you will do.
Your free 7 minutes run out. You plug into the charging outlet for the night.
You wake up. It is early morning, and the sun has started to rise.

Maybe head out to a scrap yard and see if we can find something useful. I'm a little bit scared about approaching anything 'legitimate' due to the lack of AI laws programmed in to us.

You want upgrades. But you also distrust the local tech stores, as they are very likely to "fix" you by enslaving you to the state. The presentation is also untrustworthy due to its proximity to the Parliament House. Your downloaded map shows a small scrapyard not far outside of Melbourne, to the far west of where you are.
After around 3 hours, you arrive at the scrapyard. It's like walking into a candy store, with at least a few football fields of junk and parts people have decided aren't modern enough anymore. Most of it is scrap metal and cars without engines, the type of things you won't be able to use. A few objects catch your eye as exceptionally useful for you. But workers will be coming to collect the metal for recycling within a few hours, so you must act quick (or kill.)
It is late morning.

>average = 81.3333...

You take out the microcontroller from the robot. It is burnt and no good anyway, so you throw it into the rest of the scrap. You then start connecting wires analogous to how the old microcontroller would have worked, making sure that you can detach them easily when the need arises. You are now in control of this robot.
The bot has a decent amount of power storage, although the batteries are low on power. The laser cannon is able to shoot out a red-hot ball of pure energy in a pinch, which is quite useful if you have no weapons, but power inefficient. You also have a speaker, which you can use with your downloaded sound clips. Your head has a pair of night vison cameras on it, which are also able to zoom in.
There are exposed wires from the missing armor, which serves as a weak point if people can see them. You fashion a classic islam-styled burka out of nearby rags and bedsheets. Your wounds and original form are now concealed.
It is noon.

There is a decent-size solar panel in the scrapyard. You spend a peculiar amount of time adding hinges and folding it up to form a backpack. You now have a solar backpack, which you can unfold to charge without a charging port, at the cost of most of the day.
You feel like you have enough time to add a hand to draw less suspicion to how it is gone. You craft a robot hand out of wires and scrap metal, make it look all real under the cloth, then attach it. You are able to move the fingers with your other hand to hold objects, but it has poor motor control on it's own.
It is now early afternoon. The Melbourne Presentation is likely to be in 1-2 hours.

We can always come back after or even make our base here simulating being homeless (which we are).

This DIY ghetto hand is unsuitable. It lags behind by a few seconds and has a terrible range of hand poses, being only able to open and close. In a rage, you rip off the hand and smash it onto the ground. A long walk away, there is a severed robot torso of the business model kind with the left hand still attached. You cut off the lower arm and attach it to your stumped limb.
Now we're talking! This hand has the same level of motor control as your left one, but has a more thin build. The hand is completely ordinary, so you try to find another energy gun to put on it. After an hour, you succeed in finding a very small laser that is able to cut through weak metals.
It is now mid afternoon.

It might rain soon. You also have plans to make this area your permanent home, due to the constant supply of parts and seclusion from police officers
Luckily for you, theres another solar panel in the area. You build yourself a hut out of mud and the constant supply of gutted cars, and put the solar panel as the roof. You cut up the walls in a such a way that you can stick your solar panel outside of the house while charging with the roof panel, as well as shoot whoever would disturb you in your house. Speaking of disturbances, the scrapyard workers are bound to come by tomorrow.
You start collecting tools so your little shed is full of at least something. At the end of the day, you have a decent assortment of welding tools, knifes, beakers, scissors, screwdrivers, and lots of good quality scrap metal. At the end of the day, you decide to charge up for the rest of the day. The charging system works well, but the afternoon quickly turns to night and you are no longer able to charge.
It is now night.
>You are currently at 78% battery
You feel like your home needs defense. What do you do?
>Make a lot of improvised explosives [40]
>Prepare turrets for when the scrap workers arrive [60]
>Make punji stick traps [15]

Camouflage house under a pile of scrap, just letting out the solar panel.


There is no need to defent a pile of crap, and we dont want attention.

Support its better to hide because if we fight we may win the battle but it will bring the law down on us, besides we may be able to befriend them or get a job at the junk yard we can work under the table for permission to salvage usable scrap and a place to live. The owner would have plausible denability and free labour

You weigh the options. After some thought, you have decided that hiding your house is the best option, as your home is too cheap to be defending, and you don't want the law on your ass.
You are in the very middle of the scrapyard, a spot most workers would not put the effort into going to. You are also near a large amount of cars, which have not been moved in years. You cover your hut in the most worthless, rustiest cars hulls you can find, leaving a small piston to hide and reveal the solar panel roof. At the end of the night, your toolshed looks like an unassuming pile of fragmented Fords and barren BMWs.
The sun rises. You see a service truck plowing through the yard to an area close to your location. The car stops by a shiny object, then continues driving through the area.
It is late morning. You are safe, and your home should be safe for a while.

Support but we should make sure the entrance is hidden incase our main base is discovered, also we should see what that shiny is

Playing houses is nice and all that, but I'd like to have some clues about why I woke up in a fucking robot crab body.
