Ryzom acronyms

This is a list of all acronyms that are specific to Ryzom, giving their definitions and where possible a short description. The acronyms are listed in alphabetic order, and the definitions are color-coded by category. Acronyms of guild names are not included in the main list, but there is a separate list for those down below.

As usage of acronyms can change over time, this list will be a constant work-in-progress. If you notice any acronyms missing, spot any mistakes, or just have a suggestion to make about anything on the list, please let me know and I will do my best to keep it updated.

Note to new players: If Ryzom is your first online game, you'll also encounter a whole range of acronyms that are general to online gaming. If it's your first online community entirely, you'll encounter even more acronyms that are general to online communication. Those are generally not included in the list below, it only has the acronyms that are unique to Ryzom.

The color code is:
Places, Titles, Items, Actions and skills, Attributes, Mobs & NPCs, RL stuff, General MMO acronyms and none of the former.
