The world is ravaged beyond recognition. The people of once thriving and technologically advanced civilization are now scattered in the encroaching wilderness which has all of a sudden become dangerously violent place. Centuries ago, a cataclysm tore the very reality itself to pieces and caused a global catastrophy that transformed not only the wilderness but the people as well to formerly unknown species. Humans of old were mutated in various ways which eventually led to new races and societal norms to evolve. Now, the descendants of humans and their former servants, the androids, have been left to survive on their own. The wilderness is littered with the ruins of now ancient civilization, abundant with scraps of ancient technology, some of which are still more or less intact and functioning, and some that are far less so.
