Gears are big, hulkin', clankin' automotons cooked up by some crazy gadgeteers, either recently or long ago. Made of brass etched with really purty designs, gears are stoic, smart and powerful. Most gears are running from someone controlling them, always looking behind their shoulders. They aren't afraid to rough up a feller if it means survival.
Gears tend to be gunslingers, ruffians, scoundrels, scouts and, of course, gadgeteers.
Gears get +1 Grit and +1 Toughness. They are slow, only moving 1/2 as fast as any other race. In exchange, gears don't need to eat, drink or breathe. Gears also have a natural affinity with machinery. They get a +3 bonus to identify and fix almost any type of mechanical object.
