You can also add your own functions by just dropping txt files into /files/custom/ folder, and then supplying the files' names as a command in the chat, making the bot to paste a single random line from the line directly to the chat. The bot also recognizes lines starting with /me as action-commands. The bot comes with a few standard files to provide you with examples of how it all works, from simple stuff like the Dark Overlord's Rules to more complex Black Crusade crit tables and Fudge dicerolling.
Consider sending your custom files to the programmer (to the email address specified in the readme) to share your work with the world.
Alias functionality is also available.
Current actual version is 1.4.2; download links can be found in the corresponding section of this article. Please read the readme included before using the bot, it's important.
Current commands and functions
All bot commands are preceded by a comma or the bot's name followed by the comma. The command ,be dicerollan removes this requirement for dice input.

The bot coder promised to give the bot out for free should /tg/ provide him with OCR'd crit tables from Dark Heresy Core Rulebook, which one of the tripfags indeed did.
The bot comes with Delphi source, several text files for content it works with and a compiled exe you can run right away.
Sometimes the bot will tell its owner/everyone they are banned.
Solution: change the ban list, for example, add someone, and then delete him back.
