An offhanded, if truthful, account of the many anagrams, abbreviations, and associations that make up the MMOG players lexicon!
By John "Neddie" Hammond
It was while staked out naked, covered with honey, and left for dead in the Thundering Steppes at the hands of his fellow group members that the idea of compiling a lexicon of MMOG terms came to Neddie Seagoon. While a menagerie of deadly creatures wearing halfling bibs assembled to wait for his roasting eyeballs to reach serving temperature, he had an opportunity to reflect on the reasons for his regrettable predicament.
He concluded that it was merely the result of a silly misunderstanding. Had he but known that AFK did not, in fact, mean alright for killing, he might not have precipitated the premature (in hindsight) engagement with an entire tribe of Amazon Hedgewitches by slapping the High Priestess on the butt and inquiring got any of that for me, sweet cheeks?. As it turned out, she did. Eyewitnesses report that the ensuing screams made strong men weep. Group members that somehow managed to survive the carnage expressed considerable disappointment at how events had unfolded.
What we have here, mused a Bloodtalon in a chefs hat as it basted Neddies nether regions with niblet gravy is a fail-yure to com-oo-nicate. How true, sobbed the wiser Seagoon. And he pledged to create henceforth a glossary that would explain the lexicon of MMOGs for the benefit and betterment of all. And the residuals, of course. Ten Ton Hammer is pleased to present to you the results of his labor and venal nature.
(Erratum: we have taken the liberty of correcting Mr. Seagoons compendium in one small respect. A Lamia Tickler is, in fact a weapon, and not related to the french tickler, as Mr. Seagoon would seem to suggest - ed.)
