FROM THE CREATORS OF THE PRAISELAND METAVERSE
POWERED BY DALL-E & INVENNIUM
The PraiseBots League (PBL) was originally formed to accelerate innovation at BattleTech and to train Bot Operators. But, over the years, it has become a form of entertainment for the citizens of Praiseland. Bot matches are played in the Coliseum, a massive arena that can morph into different terrains. Most Operators play for prize money, but the best players are training for a bigger quest.
PraiseBots are intentionally designed to protect Praiseland from its biggest threat—the Dark Monsters beyond the Outer Rim. Battling friendly opponents in the Coliseum is a good way to train for the real enemy.
The PBL has become a staple of Praiseland culture. Matches are played on demand, day and night. There is no offseason. Most citizens keep a running tab of their wins/losses for bragging rights.
With each league match, Bot Operators gain experience. After the battle, both contenders win prize money. The prize money can be redeemed to upgrade your gear and your fleet.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, OUR ARTIST IS A ROBOT
The artwork for PraiseBots is drawn exclusively by DALL-E, an experimental AI bot that can create images and paintings from a description in natural language. DALL-E is the only artist working on the project. We provide written art direction and DALL-E quickly creates the paintings in a matter of seconds. The Story Team then curates the best paintings for integration as official playing cards. DALL-E even designed our badass logo.
In the future, we will expand the storyline with the community's involvement, helping DALL-E create the first crowdsourced AI-generated metaverse game in Web3. We encourage the community to make derivative art from DALL-E's originals. Where will you take the story?
There are two roles in the League: Operators and Bots. While Operators manage the battle like a coach, Bots do the actual fighting. Bots often mimic humanoid or animalistic forms. The fleet can be operated from anywhere—even from another dimension.
Operators control Bots during battle, acting as a hive mind for the entire fleet. Although the Coliseum is always filled, Operators usually direct their fleets from a remote location. Each Operator's unique traits and gear dictate which Bots can be operated. For example, some Bots require VR Headsets, special controllers, or even prior battle experience.
Skilled Operators can harness their innate power, called "Magic Force," to strengthen their Bots. There are three Magic Forces: Love, Light, and Energy.
Most PBL Bots are engineered by BattleTech, the same company that creates Bots for expeditions beyond the Outer Rim. There are three main categories of tech: Short Range (SR), Long Range (LR), and Advanced Attack (AA). When an Operator and its Bot are in perfect harmony, they become "synched."
A full synch allows human Magic Forces to pair with the Bot's tech, creating three new Fusion Forces: Light Fusionforce, Energy Fusionforce, and Love Fusionforce. Fusion Forces are the only way to kill real monsters from the Outer Rim.
SYNCH FOR LIGHT FUSION
SYNCH FOR ENERGY FUSION
SYNCH FOR LOVE FUSION
All Bot Operators must complete a basic training program to safely handle the robots without the machinery sucking away their Magic Force. The training is mental, physical, and spiritual. The most legendary Operator champions are often found coaching younger rising stars in the League.
When training is complete, a magical certification card is generated, which can only be used by the holder to control official Bots in the fleet. It is important that Bots don't fall into the wrong hands.
(1) Power, (2) Speed, (3) Armor, (4) Health, (5) Magic Force, (6) Name, (7) Level, (8) Experience Meter, (9) Abilities
The four main character STATS are Power (#1), Speed (#2), Armor (#3), and Health (#4).
The possible Forces (#5) are LightForce, EnergyForce, LoveForce, LightFusion, EnergyFusion, and LoveFusion. The color of the icon indicates Rarity (Common, Rare, Epic, or Legendary).
Each Bot has a name and ID number (#6). A more experienced Bot with a higher level (#7) translates to a more powerful card. Gaining levels may increase other STATS or unlock abilities.
The Experience Meter (#8) is filled by combining duplicate cards. The green bar indicates your progress toward achieving the next level.
Each Bot has core abilities (#9) that make them unique. There are pros and cons to each character. Be sure to build your fleets strategically before heading into battle!
The more powerful the Bot, the higher its cost. The cost will influence how you create teams. Power affects all other STATS and increases with leveling.
Speed determines the order in which characters attack. It also makes the character harder to hit with SR or LR attacks.
Enemy combatants must first deplete a character’s armor before any damage can be applied to the defender’s health. If an attacker destroys a defender’s armor, any extra damage from the attack is lost.
This one is pretty straightforward. Once a character’s health hits zero, it shuts down and is removed from the battle.
If your Bot has the ability to Attack (most of them do), one of the three Attack styles below will be displayed on the card.
This means you’re fighting the opponent up close. Under normal circumstances, the attacker must be in the front row to use this attack form. Damage is assigned to the opponent's armor before health is affected. It's possible to miss or be blocked.
LR attacks allow the character to strike from a distance. These attacks will malfunction from the front row position. Damage is assigned to the opponent's armor before health is affected. It's possible to miss or be blocked.
Characters with a Magic Force or Fusion Force can do damage from any row. Not only that, this form of attack ignores the defender’s armor STAT. Damage is applied directly to health. There is no possibility of missing or being blocked. A Force Attack always hits.
Each Bot has unique programming that can aid you in a battle against a specific opponent. Some Bots are purposefully designed to be scary or to look like monsters. It prepares true warriors for what they will face in the Outer Realm.
When a Bot with Affliction hits a target, it has a chance of blocking the target's Health reboot function.
Increases Magic Reflect, Return Fire, and Thorn Spray Missile damage to all enemy Bots by 1.
If an opponent misses this Bot with an attack, the attacker takes 2 damage.
Does additional damage to Bots adjacent to the target Bot.
All enemy SR and LR attacks have an increased chance of missing their target.
Every time this Bot defeats an opponent, it gets +1 to all stats (in the Reverse Speed ruleset, -1 to Speed).
This Bot cannot be targeted for attacks unless it's in the first position.
Perform ranged attacks from the first position.
Removes all negative effects on the Bot in the first position on the friendly team.
Each time an opponent is hit by a Bot with VIRUS, it loses one max health.
This Bot does 2x damage if their target is the only Bot left on the enemy team.
Reduces the SR attack of all opponents.
When this Bot hits an opponent, it clears all positive status effects on that opponent.

Whether Humans like it or not, the Robots are coming. DALL-E is just one example of how the world can change rapidly as AI finds utility. We pledge 1% of profits to fund AI projects like DALL-E. Our aim is to support any AI tech built with humanity in mind. If we're intentional, technology can be our friend.
