A Nightblood of your own!

Hello humans!

A question here. If you can have a Nightblood of your own making, what command would you give it instead?

Preserver Truth

Promote Sentience (Danger = Skynet)

Be sword.  

I think that is the simplest command that has the least chance of not going awry.  I think commands to "be" instead of "do" are safer in that the wielder can still control the actions.

Obey Asimov's Law of Robotics? 

I haven´t read Asimov, but from what i´ve heard aren´t many of his stories about robot rebellions using loopholes in his three rules?:P

There are, but they almost never result in something lethal, and are usually resolved.  I think that Asimov's rules are a good way to keep a nightblood in check.

Uh, considering Asimov’s 3 laws of robotics, I don’t think Nightblood would make a very good sword if he followed them. 

  • The First Law of Robotics: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

If I had a Type 4 Awakened entity, then it would be an Elvish sword with the command, “Kill those who deserve it, in my opinion.”
