    What does the Technocracy call hobgoblins?
    That is, "hobgoblin" sounds like a Traditions term. I imagine the Union uses some pseudo scientific sounding term.
    What do you think?

      Maybe "Psionic Parasites". More of a NWO term.


      Thank you for passing time with me in conversation. My Hacks.

        Well, either TBEs aka Tinker Bell Entities (Chimerical stuff) or PDEs aka Pan-Dimensional Entities (Umbral Stuff), depending on what kind of hobgoblin you are dealing with.

        From Technocracy Reloaded at least.

          One term that I heard from other games and that I like a lot is EDE (Extra dimensional entities), but that is a generic term for any being that's not from our home dimension. In this particular case, you could also use these that I just invented: HOB (Hostile oneiric being), PPM (Predatory Psychic Manifestation), DDI (Disruptive dream intruder), or FMC (Folklore mimic creature)

            How about PEM - Personal Entity Manifestations (Or PME if we wanna turn the order)

            I'm sure the Technocracy has lots of records of them and are aware that they seem to stick around single individuals.

              Reality abominations, targeted for termination.

                I have three ideas / examples:
                Hobgoblin-Derived Entities
                Goblinoid Manifestations
                Goblin Creature-Entitites

                I see no clear / definite reasons against Technocrats directly using words, phrases, or terms which have at least some technical and practical relevancy, and that also can certainly be characteristic and recognizable.

                  Aliens. In my games, the average Technocrat views absolutely everything from the Middle and Astral Umbrae as literal aliens.

                    I am so using HOB.

                      Maybe Gremlins, since the origin of the term has to do with malfunctioning technology?

                        By the way, Magic: the Gathering trading card game Kaladesh set / expansion has Gremlins as creatures / soldiers of the Red colour. They seem quite cute and funny, though you never know. And they do indeed have gameplay effects and abilities which are themed as damaging technology or causing technology to malfunction. There are not many Gremlin cards in MtG, but these cards are still noteworthy and interesting.
