Chemical propellants and explosives no longer function
Military superpowers (USA, China, etc..) have lost their military superiority when their weapons and vehicles stopped functioning

Some want to raid our world for resources not available in theirs (ex. Rock-Goblins and wood)
Some want to destroy for the sake of destruction (ex. Wraith)
Some want to conquer our world
