Hello all,

While I am all in with True Dungeon and Virtual True Dungeon I am still fairly new, I found starting out in the forums a bit confusing with all the Acronyms and game specific terms that veteran players threw around. If there isn't already a location with all of these defined, how about we start throwing them into this topic. I believe it will be a big help to new players and lower the barrier to entry.

TD Acronyms unique language 2 months 2 weeks ago #2

I was just thinking about this the other day! I've been playing for a couple of years and I still have to think twice about some of them.

TE = Treasure Enhancer (items that grant you more treasure pulls)
TD = Trade Good

There was another four letter one recently I had to look up, I just couldn't figure it out. When I remember what it was I'll post it, I'm pretty sure it was a specific token.

Although it's not an acronym, chocolate is a term used for trade goods. And on that note - all of the trade good acronyms - AI, AP, DS, EB, EM, etc.

HHL - Harlax's Helpful Lamp
PUG - pick up game
LFO - looking for others
LFM - looking for more
UR - Ultra-rare
URTE - Ultra-rare Treasure Enhancer
2k/8k - size of token orders
There's also some terms that aren't TD specific - WTB (want to buy), ISO (in search of), WTT/WTTF - want to trade/for

Good call, but these should also include explanations...

LFO: Looking For Others (the group is still looking for some of the tickets for this run)
LFM: Looking For More (the group has all of the tickets for this run, but not every ticket has a player yet)

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

TD Acronyms unique language 2 months 2 weeks ago #6

I was a bit sad when "RoR" changed from Ring of Regeneration to Ring of Riches. All the early TE UR tokens have well known acronyms:

HoP Horn of Plenty
RoR Ring of Riches (or Ring of Regeneration for us old-timers)
CoGF Charm of Good Fortune
AoTF Amulet of Treasure Finding
CoA Charm of Avarice

I haven't seen people using acronyms much for the Gold/Silver/Platinum Nuggets.

When you remember I will add it to the list. I know I have looked up dozens of acronyms over the last two years and can't remember them off hand.

It was AoTF, reading this thread jogged my memory. So yay, someone already caught it!
