I’ve created another Maze Rats bot using cheap bots done quick; this brings my Maze Rats twitter bot family up to three: @maze_monsters, @mazerats_folk, and now, @mazerats_magic. It tweets hourly, building up magical spells and binding them to strange items. It also suggests unpleasent side-effects and divines dire portents for the unwary wizard.

The Tracery JSON is pretty simple as these things go, but it does use the .a decorator in a couple of places; of the three bots it’s the one doing the most grammatically complex work, rather than just spitting out lists of words. As such, I’ll be keeping an eye out for mangled sentences, but it seems to be doing a good job so far.
