The 2121: Tekano Corp Story
It's been 50 years since the first Tech Wars changed society forever, and the fighting has never stopped. The rising sophistication of technology and our dependence on it gave tech companies vast amounts of power. They became richer and more powerful than even the governments.
The hearts and minds of the population were easily manipulated by controlling the narrative available online. Corporations started using cryptocurrencies to further distance themselves from the bank and government oversight. As they made billions, they invested in new technologies in public services, launching better versions. Governments soon became obsolete, and then big corporations started fighting each other for power.
Those with money and technology now rule, with whole countries fragmenting into alternative territories. The Tekano Dynasty rose to dominance in Japan, growing rich and powerful from their superior robotics technology. In global demand, Tekano Corp robots are now everywhere and factions of New Japan can be found across the world.
However, in 2121 no-one remains in power for long. After all, technology might be profitable but so is war. Empress Taiyo must be ruthless and vigilant, looking out for anyone who might steal her robotics technology by stealth, or try to invade New Japan and take it by force. She has an army of robots and highly trained soldiers, and is prepared for anything!
The Dieselpunk Story
The sprawling metropolis of New Haven is under the iron control of Viktor Ivanov and The Authority - his own personal army. Coming from old money, Viktor has a complete monopoly of the oil and gas fuel supplies sustaining the island. His rule is absolute.
While the wealthy live privileged lives behind the shinning metal walls of Sun City, the rest of the population live hard lives working in the Central District. Factories and industry stretch as far as the eye can see, and smog hangs thickly in the air. Food and supplies are carefully controlled by Viktor and the poorer workers in Central do not have enough. The death rate is too high and the future is bleak.
The Maslo Group was founded to fill this hope vacuum. They are a brave, highly trained and well organised group of smugglers breaking into Viktor's heavily guarded supply trains and stealing food, medicine and fuel. They distribute this across the Central District to help those most in need. Viktor cannot allow this insolence to stand.
The Authority are rolling out into Central to take down The Maslo Group's headquarters, which have recently been discovered. They are bringing an arsenal of weapons, from a massive combat robot called The Goliath to a hover tank known as The Huntsman, all headed by an elite group of trained soldiers known as The Volk. Our smuggling heroes must defend their supply base and defend the workers of New Haven from this tyranny. Everything is at stake today. Without The Maslo Group, who will people turn to? They must win this fight and prevail!

Tekano Corp Security
Tekano sci-fi scenery
To give the environment of Takeno Corp some structure and help provide a sense of what the place is like, we have several terrain items. They also work well on the tabletop as structures of varying heights and sizes to play around. The Torii Gate is the entry into Tekano Corp, symbolising power and the sacred. The Tekano Dynasty now rules Japan and they want to promote their link to the divine.
The Hikko Shrine is found across the Tekano groups, and at first looks innocent, but in the case of an invasion the traditional bell will automatically swap to a Laser Turret, remotely controlled and with deadly accuracy.
We also have a beautiful Pagoda, which serves as the meeting rooms for Tekano Corp and is the ideal place to host important guests. It keeps in link to Japan's traditional roots while also being grand and a show of power.
Finally, the Tekano Dynasty collection comes with a set of scenic bases. We have some cyberpunk inspired designs and a futuristic zen garden to really embody the way we have fused traditional Japanese culture with a technology dominated future.
Across many of the scenic items in the collection, you'll notice a sun symbol - this is Tekano Corp's logo. Japanese royalty is said to be descended from the Sun Goddess, and after Tekano Corp overtook Japan 30 years ago and ousted their royal monarchy after thousands of years of rule, they wanted to claim some legitimacy in the act.
Adopting the sun as their logo gave them a link to the divine, and they heavily pushed through propaganda that due to their superior robot technology, - which many Japanese citizens now relied on - they were chosen by the Sun Goddess to lead New Japan into the modern age of the new century, 2100.
