Still trying to figure out what sounds better for a kobold that has cybernetically augmented itself to the point that nothing of its original meat-based body remains. Especially if said kobold has consciously tried to make itself shiny.


@salameleon The second ones seems to beg to be a portmanteau.

@FelixArden A couple people suggested "robold" as a shorthand for it, which I think works well enough, but may be easier to mishear in conversation.

@salameleon @FelixArden I like robold, too, but now this makes me think: "I've never quibbled, if it was ribald..." --Tom Lehrer
