The Burning Adventurer's Dictionary


One of the secrets to success in Burning is efficient communication.
It can be and downright frustrating when you don't have a clue what
everyone else is talking about :P. Here's a short list of some of the
more common terms used on the MUD. More terms will be added to the
guide in upcoming issues, hopefully this will help dispel any confusion
you may have with popular jargon, wether you be a newbie or a veteran... :)

1 new term was added this month for a total of 82 terms. :)
