Machine spirits as a concept are integral to Techmancery, but the name is misleading. It creates unfortunate associations with WH40K and must thus be changed. This page is meant for brainstorming new names for the beings. Feel free to add new ones, comment old ones etc.
Update : Mekanima is the new name for machine spirits. Version 1.1 will be updated accordingly. This page left for reference purposes. Other suggestions can be used as alternative terminology within the game world.
Mekanima || could actually be the name of the whole game Ini
Clockwork/gearangels (and demons, when behaving badly)
Soul fragments (or fragment souls)
