Pretty good list, but Myrmidon is an archetype, Minotaur is a race, i don't think either need to be on the list though, it's not like their any more unique or misunderstood than stoneborn dwarfs or frost weaver elves.


That's fair.  I deliberated on both of those.  On review, most conversations involving archetypes have enough context that these should probably be pulled.



You left out "custard" and "poorly made socks". Two terms that I now intimately connect with Crowfall, for some custarding reason.


Thanks!  Added.  I knew I was forgetting something vital.  :)

A couple other common ones I see around the forums a lot are Gordon and Todd's names; GW and JTC.  Might help to throw those in.


Good call.  Those are everywhere.


I would add "CW" for Campaign World, seems to be what the devs are using.


It seems like adoption is low, but I'll toss it in.


gonzo is no longer, Its back to carebear.


That's a shame.


If you're going to include Eve, you might as well include CU. Eve is the standard foil in economic discussions, and CU is the standard foil in PvP-centric game design discussions.


Under consideration.  Off the top of my head, it seems like there are many more references to Eve floating around, while Camelot Unchained is not commonly abbreviated.
