TechniccaTechniccans are the descendants of the ancient civilization that was so advanced that it even was able to build mechanical humanoids called androids. During the Hot Age they hid themselves in the underground caves and stayed there ever since, completely abandoning the overworld.
But even in the ancient past when they used to live in the mountains, they were quite afraid of all other civilizations because techniccans don't mature past the teen years, so having small, supple bodies they were quite afraid of their neighbors, the large barbarian brutes, the powerful genies and the muscular nagas. Their fears always made them work on improving their technology and fortifications, and in the end they calculated that moving completely inside the mountains would be the best.
Techniccans have created a world where space is highly valued, since every section of the underworld Technicca is made of high quality materials, very expensive to build. So above all techniccans appreciate compactness and usually sleep in a triplefold since babyhood, and as they bodies mature they gradually train to compress into small sleeping capsules. Their furniture is also designed to rest in various tight knots and pretzels, while practicing contortion in the morning is a lot more common than jogging or push-ups.
