Wont you take me to Robotown?

So many ruins, post apocalyptic towns and former dumps have a robotown. Over centuries many robots if not self aware became it after generations without orders and living beyond their warranty without service or reboot. Some are in good condition, some repair themselves with scrap or the evil ones with rob other robots of parts and transmission fluid. Some remember crawling in trashpiles before the wall looking for parts as the bombs fell. Some act like the bomb never happened. Some have learned creeds that hate humans or tolerate them or think humans are pets they should protect from themselves. In a Robotown all kinds of robots walk the street and trade and sometimes meat beings come to visit but they should be respectful and not wear armour or clothes made of robot skins like some tribes do.

There are some tables here to help make more robot factions and for robots to meet. In robotown they cooperate and trade and will tolerate humans as best they can. Will do a robot book some time.

This was deleted and I had to rewrite as best I could.
