your invitation has arrived
blue galaxy   For millions of years a race of beings, whose evolutionary development infinitely exceeds your own, has scanned the universe for sentient life forms. Known as the Adjudicators, they have transcended the constraints of physical being, manifesting only as pure energy, and can navigate the universe effortlessly. Over eons these benevolent nomads have taken it upon themselves to nurture the seeds of civilization and to cultivate knowledge and peace.
For millennia your development has been monitored, and now, finally, your technological progress warrants the Adjudicators' intervention. As you are on the verge on harnessing quantum technology, the stepping stone to interstellar travel, contact with other intelligent life is your next inevitable step. With this comes the risk that ignorance and fear may cause disastrous conflict. In order to prevent this conclusion, we, the appointed emissaries of the Adjudicators, have made contact with you to facilitate your smooth transition into the Adjudicators' universal community. The Adjudicators have created a small area of super density in your solar system causing an infinite curvature of space-time, known as a singularity. This singularity has generated a wormhole in the fabric of space, through which we have established a link with your global communication system: the Internet. Through this we hope to bring you into peaceful contact with other intelligent life forms.
Bringing alien civilizations together has not always been easy, as conflict and rivalry between new neighbors is commonplace. The Adjudicators have therefore worked as intermediaries to assist in the drafting of treaties to prohibit the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, and to aid commerce and co-operation. By making these civilizations economically dependent upon the Adjudicator's highly advanced interstellar transport system, they have been able to enforce peaceful relations by restricting access to unruly planets. It became necessary however to define a means of political dispute resolution for diplomatic stalemates.   alien bot

ROBOFORGE became the solution; robotic gladiators representing the opposing factions engage in combat, and the owner of the victor is awarded precedence in the disagreement. The political relevance of this solution has diminished as greater understanding between races allows discord to more frequently end in compromise. Its popularity as a public spectacle, combined with the benefits of technological advancement, has led the Adjudicators to continue ROBOFORGE as a popularized sport. Each civilization has been given the opportunity to develop and sell their technology freely, and ROBOFORGE is now accessible to anyone who has the means to compete. Its longevity is insured by its marketability. Private entities compete for commercial pride, constructing their robots from components sourced from any of the ROBOFORGE manufacturers to optimize performance. Revenue from broadcasting, sponsorship and the promotion of trade is immeasurable, while the competition promotes the sharing of knowledge and alleviates interplanetary tensions.
fighting   Before you are allowed access to the interstellar transport system, we wish to introduce you to your new neighbors, their technology, and their worlds, by allowing you access to the ROBOFORGE network. We have created software to allow you to remotely design and test combat robots here on Earth. This software allows you to download your designs through our interstellar portal to an automated construction plant on Cytol. At this facility the combat robots are constructed, programmed and delivered to the designated tournament venue, ready for battle.

Fame and fortune await those exceptional few who rise above the competition.

This is your invitation to become a ROBOFORGE designer.

Do you accept?
