World of the Mandurai Robotonists
To the naked and un-cybonically-exacerbated eye, the sprawling and tangled forests of V'kanderplon IX appear as naturally verdant as any in the Fifteen Galaxies. On closer inspection of one of the tall, twisted trees however, one might pull off a strip of flaking, synthetic bark to discover a complex cybonic assembly of bio-mechanoid synapses fed through the trunk of a vascular proto-plas shell engineered for wide-scale carbon processing. Also, frogs.
As part of the string of planets under thrall to the expansive Mandurai megaconglomerate, V'kanderplon IX is a habitable world rich in the transfermium, blechite, and ekasilicon greedily harvested by the grasping pincers of EK Excavators. Prior to the Mandurai march of progress, the planet hosted Mendozanian monkeries and temples which have since fallen to ruin amid the synthetic forestation. It still retains chapters of the Cloister of Ligotechs, whose Mecha-Priests file daily ethics complaints against the Robotonists.
