Jaccobe Larame is a robotics expert. His questionable attitudes towards robots sent him to the unemployment line. Using his surperb skills and the last of his savings, Jaccobe purchased a plot of land near the Northern Territory bordering a wildlife perserve. There he hired loggers to spec out, log and build a human western settlement reministant of a long forgotten planet.

While construction was commencing Jaccobe spent his time travelling to the Port Loren Library searching for information on languages, traditions and technology a few hundred years after the discovery of black powder.   

Once the research was complete he purchase parts and equipment and set all his efforts to building human-looking robots. He made bad guys, a sheriff, bar tenders, cattle men, sheep herders, steeds, ect.. He programed "slang" into the robots language, robots often say words whos meaning is lost to the general public. For 10 credits a patron can purchase a datapad with the layout of Cyber Gorge, translation text (cowrobot to pan-gal), etc.

Cyber Gorge is a entertainment theme park that spans hundreds of kilometers. 

Some of the buildings have holo-projectors that project images of ghostly townsfolk. An elderly man sits at a piano whipping up a diddy, suddenly he evaporates into thin air. The piano keeps playing.

Would be a great setup for a Westworld (Good OLD sci fi flick) like scenario. I was endeavoring to come up with a concept and join a project because I hate to see a robot beg... So what if there was a Westworld type situation, because the Silver Death Cult or some other nasty group altered some of the programming in the computers and robots to prove their point. Of course they would have to have a field team in the Gorge with a holo setup to see the slaughter and send them streaming across the Frontier. If the players found out the truth... well they could be shot at, stabbed, incinerated, stapled, mangled, poisoned, blown to bits, or occasionally accidently executed.

Hrm... if the Silver Death Cult did get wind of robots self-learning beyond their programming capacity they would someone get involved.
