The world has been shattered by two wards spanning decades, followed by a century of smoking ruins, but most of this is lost to you, for you have slept away those ages. As a band of recently awakened sentient robots, you remember the world as it was at the height of civilization, but find a new world awaits you now. Struggling with a harsh world, and a budding sense of self and purpose, you have bound together to follow the hope of… something better.

That journey has brought you to the remains of a once grand city, with towers of metal and concrete stretching into the skies. Much has been lost, but much still remains, and you enter this graveyard of civilization in hope of answers. What you find instead is tragedy, as an earthquake sends the world crashing down around you, plunging you into the darkness below… where things still move, and something hunts. It will take everything you can muster to escape, and even more if you hope to keep your minds intact.

Mekanika is a home-grown setting that uses the PbtA (Powered by the Apocalypse System). In addition to some familiar mechanics, players will experience a unique card based system designed to capture the essence of being a being that is both mind and machine, steel and soul.
