Thronebot (from the official Throne of Lies Discord community) is a Discord bot created to enhance player engagement and moderation for "Throne of Lies: Medieval Politics", an online PvP game. By offering a variety of in-game commands, realtime interaction, and game tracking, Thronebot provides a comprehensive tool for both players and moderators. The bot allows players to directly launch games from Discord and tracks game results using webhooks. Additionally, moderators can use Thronebot to manage player behavior with commands such as granting gold, querying player stats and moderation history, and issuing warns or bans. The seamless integration of Thronebot with the game's backend is achieved through a combination of APIs, cloud scripting, and authentication, making it an invaluable asset to the "Throne of Lies: Medieval Politics" community.
As the developer of Thronebot, I was responsible for designing, implementing, and integrating the bot into the "Throne of Lies: Medieval Politics" ecosystem. My tasks included researching and utilizing various tools and APIs, creating the bot's feature set, and ensuring seamless communication between the game and Discord platform. I also handled the implementation of moderation commands and player engagement features to provide a comprehensive tool for both players and moderators.
