The war between mechanoids and humans lasted for thousands of years, and nowadays small friction still exists in this rim world. Crashed ships frequently fell on the planet’s surface, and made great influence to people still in Industrial or Medieval age.

Sometimes advanced mechanoids launch orbital weapons to human planets, an event known as “Rod from God” among the humans. These fallen ships sometimes contain usable mech parts and even ship center control AI, which has made humanity able to decrypt mech technologies and gather mechanoid data to improve their own technology.
