At the front desk of the Tesla Ranger building was an older white hombre with a few whiskers more than most. Behind him was a large portrait of another old white man. The man at the desk tipped his hat as you entered. His steel blue eyes bored directly into your soul. Gus he was called by most, and a tale talker to boot. Everyone who came in got an earful about how all this came to be. Fortunately or sadly you were not spared this experience. Perhaps the saving grace was Gus also asked a bit about you and your experience, and in the end he inquired if you were up for a ride into the Uncanny Valley.
After his tale was told Gus refreshed his pipe tapping the smoldering embers onto a metallic tray. He holds up a telegram that had been sitting on the counter, ” Just got word from A township, Uncanny Valley, 3 days ride. The men ther’ caught a Cog...”
Gus rubbed his side unconsciously, ” Bot Masterson... Shootist Cog if there ever was one on either side of the ‘sippi. They say Masterson can make a man do his worst without thinking twice. By your looks you might have heard of e’m. Tessla needs some folks to ride out and bring him back for study.”
If you were a betting man you might think Gus had other designs than study. ” Before you accept partner, tell me a bit about yourself and experiences... We just don’t let any volunteer become a tesla ranger.”
He chuckled slightly because in fact they have never denied an applicant.

Ok Partners mount up. I would like to run the published adventure in the Tesla Ranger setting.
No EP cost to play (VV approved), I would expect it to run through January. A great chance to experience swade.
As you sound off and express your interest, character name, concept. Include a little RP in character of a time Bot Masterson did you wrong, or perhaps someone you know. Strike that connection and you get to start this ride at seasoned. Everyone else... Novice.
What happens after Jan? I do not have any designs to run it past the published adventure... But who knows what the future holds.
Note: this game may progress at a slightly slower pace. I am expecting GM posts that advance the story every other week.
What do you need to play in the game?
- Copy of SWADE
- Setting description of Tesla Rangers would not hurt. Page 27 in the mini settings.
- Bottle of wiskey
- Spirit of a desperado.
Game starts? June 15th, or July 1st.

Welcome to Fort Ohm, one of the last saloon infested, card shark ran, and boozing towns this side of the Mississippi. Electric lamp posts line the city dirt streets and made the city glow like an orange spark fly in the dark. A sense of hustle and bustle filled the city as people walked to and fro on the wooden sidewalks or clompped through the streets via horseback. Smack dab in the city center was a three story building filled with copper lamps and blue electric doodads said to do remarkable feats. The sign of this building read, Tesla Rangers.
