Owl Hoot Trail Race - Gears

So Owl Hoot Trail recently got released as a PDF by Pelgrane Press. It's a neat little fantasy western game, and probably the best one I've seen aside from Deadlands. There are five races in the book, as well as some bonus ones like tieflings and centaurs on the Pelgrane site. However, I noticed they were missing a distinct race: steampunk robots! What Old West fantasy game would be complete without them? So here is my write-up of the Gears!


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.
