The Mechanus is possibly the most bizarre of the outer planes of the multiverse, and that’s saying something. The entire plane is made of a series cogs, gears, pipes, pistons and all sorts of ticking equipment, both tiny and so large you can house entire cities upon them. Everything here is routine, like clockwork, and there is no deviation from that routine.

The Mechanus can roughly be divided into 4 factions. The first is the Modrons, a series of robotic creatures of various polyhedra shapes that go about their programmed business every day without question. The Modrons occupy exactly 64 cogs, at all times, and deviations from the laws are enforced swiftly, usually consisting of forced labour, imprisonment, or banishment. These, oddly enough, are the most habitable zones, with some sections being specifically for “organic” creatures to live in. It is in this section of the Mechanus that the party tracked down some fleeing Sinkers.

The second faction is the Formian Empire, a giant ant-like race of people that behave as a hivemind, obeying the great Formian Queen without question. Although not robotic, these creatures thrive in orderly environments, and are constantly looking to expand their empire further.

The third faction are the Inevitables. Much more humanoid looking that Modrons, but with zero humanity whatsoever, the Inevitables believe themselves to be the great arbiters of law across the multiverse. And any law that is broken is punishable by death. They are relentless and terrifying, believing themselves to be created from the very lifeblood of Law itself.

The fourth faction, if it can be called that, is the under Mechanus, a hiding place within the cogs themselves for travellers, refugees, undermarket dealings, and “broken” Modrons. It is a dangerous place, with the Mechanus constantly full of rotating walls of gears and pipes and whatnot, but is the only refuge for those that do not fit into each factions concept of order.
