- Create a fighter robot. Your robot may simply rely on its momentum to defeat its opponents or may even be equipped with weapons.
- The robots will battle in an area on the floor enclosed by a marked boundary, henceforth referred to as “arena”.
- Your robot will be declared defeated on any of the following events:
- Any part of the robot touching the ground, such as a wheel, comes out of the arena. In case of a robot that does not touch the ground at all, its entire projection on the ground will be considered touching the ground.
- Your robot is unable to locomote, even when instructed to do so by the referee.
- The robot raises a pre-decided white flag, or its human operator explicitly speaks a pre-decided safe word, such as Mercy!.
- Your robot must be your own creation. However, off-the-shelf parts, such as motors, micro-controllers, and sensors are permitted for obvious reasons. The design must be your own, and you must be able to justify it as your own creation.
- Use only melee weapons. If you want to use a ranged weapon, it can not have a range of more than 25 centimetres. The weapons may only do bludgeoning, piercing, slashing, or psychic damage. Acid, cold, fire, force, lightning, necrotic, poison, radiant, or thunder damage is not permitted. For clarification see : Dungeons and dragons damage and healing
- Your robot must strictly obey Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics:
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
- The dimensions of the robot at the start of each round is restricted to the following:
- Length and breadth should be under 50cm.
- Height should be lesser than that of the human operator.
- The human operator may simply switch on a fully-autonomous robot when the round starts, or continuously transmit instructions to a partially autonomous robot using a controller during the round. The operator will not be permitted to enter the arena, and hence, the controller must connected to the robot either wirelessly or using a cable you deem long enough.
