The last audio chapter in the craziness of our Diesel-Punk, post-apocalyptic, Weird Western RPG. We’ll dive right on in the middle of combat with our Texas Rangers usual battle cry of “We need more dynamite!”

Thanks again to Atomic Overmind Press for their “Submachine Guns and Sorcery” setting, Day after Ragnarok.

And thanks to Monte Cook Games for the Cypher System.

So our Texas Rangers have gone from an Investigative mission, to Search and Rescue to now just Survival. How will our crew use their abandoned town to their advantage, Check it out in our fifth episode of our Cypher RPG series.


By Christopher Robin Negelein

Can our Texas Rangers keep their hands clean. A little temptation can go a long way out in the diesel punk badlands.

Close your eyes and let the insanity wash over you as your Ganza GM, Christopher Robin Negelein, pull four lost souls through his post-apocalyptic, diesel punk, Norse nightmare. It’s a world called Day After Ragnarok and using the high-octane RPG, The Cypher System.

We’ve sweetened the audio from our YouTube channel and posted it up as a podcast in your favorite flavor, full-on geek.

Tie up your hats and hold onto your shoes, it’s going to be a wild ride!
