So a while back I wrote a simple little Twitter Bot that, if you sent it a tweet, would respond to you with a random Strategy and set of Schemes.  The bot proved pretty sucessful with several tweets a day being aimed at it.

Over the past few months I have continued to make improvements to it here and there and today rolled out another couple.

However it occured to me that we now have Malifaux players that weren't around when I first created the bot so I thought I should put together a simple set of instructions on how to get the best out of it.

In all cases there is no need to actually follow the bot.

Case 1

Just send a tweet to @malifauxschemes.  You don't need to put anything in the body and it will respond with something like this

Case 2

Send a tweet to @malifauxschemes with the hashtag #ggn where n is a number between 1 and 7 and the bot will respond with the appropriate GG2014 Strategy and Deployment.  n is the round that you want to pick.  So sending #gg4 will be the 4th round.  The bot automatically determines the correct month.

Case 3

If you send a tweet to the bot with the hashtag #vassal in it it will randomly determine a map for you to play on as well.  However with the advent of the M2e module this map list is currently out of date. Needless to say, once the Vassal module is updated and the breadth of maps is back, I will update the bot again.

Hopefully that gives you enough information to use the bot and have fun through the breach.

Oh yes that is Summer Glau as a terminator.  Well frankly why wouldn't you.
