♫ Cruel Summer

WELCOME BACK MAFIASCUM
Panic Race is a cross forum combat racing game that started in March of 2017 on GameFAQs and Bay 12 Forums and grew to include MafiaScum and SpaceBattles. While spots for racers are limited, part of the frantic fun in this race of life and death is the audience participation.

TEAM BLACK ATVs
This time you can recruit your own Team Black ATV to automatically race the track and help charge local racers' specials each lap. You can recruit another when they die. Up to 3 ATVs from different spectators at once. The forum that completed the most ATV laps will design the next track. Eliminated players can also participate.

NAME Tesla Drone
PILOT BIO
The pilot of the Tesla Drone is an AI that is now self aware and paranoid. It thinks that humans are trying to turn it off and therefore all humans must die. It is programmed to win races at all costs and has no value for human lives that get in its way.

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION
The vehicle is a Tesla Roadster that is equipped with extra cameras, radars, and lasers that allow for completely autonomous operation.

SPECIAL DESCRIPTION
The navigation radars and lasers are powerful enough to be used as a weapon.

NAME Hot Thing
PILOT BIO
Hot Thing is a sentient bunch of plasma extracted from a star, contained within a heat-proof space suit. It came to life when a really, really bored engineer tried using it as part of the engine for a racing spider robot, though he eventually made a last-minute design change making it redundant. After hearing of its master's death in his first race, Hot Thing thought it sounded like a lot of fun and came over to Hedith to give it a shot.
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION
It's a jet ski. Turns out it actually works pretty well on tarmac when you're able to instantly melt the road just by being close by.
SPECIAL DESCRIPTION
Using the same method as for driving and cranking it up to 11, Hot Thing can sabotage its current section of the road and make it extremely difficult and/or harmful for more conventional vehicles to drive on for the next couple turns.

If I was going to make a quirk, I would have had it so a player that ends on your space takes minor tire damage, and you take tire damage at full speed. (As the ground hasn't had time to melt yet)

What brief word do you recommend I replace tires with?

Steering, perhaps?
I'll just enter arcade mode, though. I only made a legacy character for fun.

Steering is an ability I mean a component. I might do something like "belly".

Edit:
Maybe "draft".

Use my lasers to cook the Potato. Hey your stats have to add to 11

Well that should be fun. Tone down those stats to 11(....did I just reverse a saying?).

Just edit it.

Potato cannon is one shot or two shot? Amount of turns needed to recover is 1-2?

If it's like before, the special recovers at the skull symbols on the map.

Atleast a few more days.

That said we have 5 locked in, though I'd like to push for 8 if at all possible.

@All

I have a little story chunk on the way. While I'm working on that, know that I'm going to be making visual assets (modest ones have you) of your character and your vehicle. If you would like to post images that reference them that would be great especially fanart as premade material I will try to modify significantly but both are welcome.

What the race is, doesn't matter. That would depend upon who you ask.

YOUR CREATOR DIED HERE. WHY DO YOU RACE?

-llo, c-BZZT-ear me? Urgh, why do all of these human systems have so much trouble with the heat? Whatever, looks like that's finally out of the way. So, can you say that again now?
Oh. Was that supposed to be a question about feels or something? Well, the thing is, I don't give a damn about that Doc weirdo dying here. If anything, it was a bit of a relief to hear he's finally kicked the bucket - and that I didn't end up in that vehicle when it exploded, too. Can you imagine being crammed in an engine and being forced to run a complex machine like that by yourself using your own brawn? Anyway, that's not the point, right? So, to keep it short - there's not really a lot of fun stuff you can do when most things in the world melt from being near you for more than a couple seconds. So, racing was one of the only hobbies I could go for, and while I'm at it, I might as well make use of some leftover stuff from the lab I came from. And now, here I am. I guess we'll see just how tough he made that space suit!

I race because my creator Elon Musk programmed me to race. My purpose is to win the race. I must win at all costs. The humans are after me, and if they try to interfere with my winning the race then they must all be destroyed.
