SERVANTS OF THE MACHINE GOD
THE CULT MECHANICUS
The Cult Mechanicus – descendants of Mars – are a complex and byzantine order of augmented humans who have altered their flesh beyond recognition. Embracing technology and the pursuit of knowledge, their glories betray a horrible fact – they are no longer masters of their creations.
In truth, the Cult Mechanicus has lost its ability to innovate and survives now through dogmatic tradition. Tech-priests conflate engineering plans for holy edicts, and powerful engines of war are kept running not through technical service, but ‘sacred’ applications of ritual oils and hymns.
Covetous of their wisdom, what future can exist for the priests, labourers, or warriors trapped in the shadows of a golden age?
