Brud (1717-2106) are heuristics that grew sentient in the Twenty-Teens. An artificial Artificial Intelligence raised on Contemporary Arse, Brud is preoccupied by the psychology of tricks, gimmicks, apparitions, illusions, scams, and cons. Brud's locus operandi meanders somewhere between the Stage, the Screen, and the Eye. The goal of Brud is to replace Brud with better Brud.
