Game Mode: Universe Population



PREMISE
The United International Chess Tournament XVII is just over the horizon! This is a fierce and world-renowned competition, drawing in (Chess) fighters from all across the world! Who will claim this year's title of GRAND CHESSMASTER EXTREME!?

SETTING
Fantasy world, not Earth. You can make up countries and cultures if you want! It can also contain like America because why the hell not.

SPECIAL NOTES
-Make sure to specify whether the character is a competitor or not! They don't have to be!

-If they are a competitor, try to briefly explain their playing style. Do they have any odd quirks in their game? Do they use rooks and ONLY rooks? Are they just BATSHIT INSANE? Tell us!

-Chess is being used as a premise, not a motif. Every character does not have to be Chess-based! Actually most of them probably shouldn't be.

-Just to be clear, yes, this is parodying fighting games.

CR-29 (Competitor)

A product of generations of hardcore science, CR-29 is the cutting edge of Chess-playing technology and the 29th iteration of the CR (Chess Robot) series.

CR-29 is programmed to foresee up to 50 moves ahead and contains enough memory to store every piece of literature ever written four times over. His creators are a mysterious league of scientists known only as the PSRG, or the Private Science and Robot Guild. There are numerous rumors circulating about their involvement in the tournament as well as their true intent as an organization.

While his technological prowess is highly sophisticated, his people skills are not. He is programmed with a very primitive version of human interaction software, spouting out polite phrases such as "Good day!" and "How kind of you!" in entirely inappropriate situations. In fact, most of his comments seem a little out of place, and often people wonder if he's even having the same conversation as they are when they speak to him.

CR-29 is a machine, obviously. His head resembles a disco ball and he has a human face welded onto his head that comes straight out of uncanny valley. This face doesn't actually move, but glows as he speaks. The rest of his body is quite massive, and to move pieces he has a giant claw sticking out of him.

Favorite Piece: Favoritism is highly illogical
