    Hello!

    This dictionary is in no way shape or form complete. I have well over a hundred words in it at the the moment and I will add more as they come up or someone brings one to my attention that I have missed. On that note, please, please, send me a message or post in this guide if you see a mistake--especially spelling and grammar mistakes, which as you will quickly learn, I make all the time.

    This guide, just like any other dictionary is organized alphabetically with each letter a separate post. The reason for this is to make navigation easier and increase the ease of use.

    Future Dictionary Goals:
    • A more in depth explanation for the different research items, especially in the biome tree
    • More slang that I have overlooked
    • Add more colors and pictures to make understanding the words easier
    • Add a see similar words that relate to the word being defined
    Without further ado I present to you the first section of the alphabet, all those miscellaneous symbols and weird characters that you have probably forgot about. Following that will the wonderful letter 'A' and then the rest of the alphabet.

    [ ]: refers to a clans tag, it is set by the owner when they create the clan. It can be one, two, or three letters long in length and is typically an abbreviation of their clans name

    ***: this occurs when someone bypasses (swears, says a cuss word, or derogative term) in a chat window

    'Player name' inc #/#: this is one method of reporting incoming attacks in clan chat rather then spamming all 1.1 million battle reports you just got.

    Protection cap: each resource has its own protection cap which can be increased by building treasuries. A percent increase to your protection cap is also available as a research option. However, this percent increase is not reflected in the protection cap that you can see when viewing your profile. To calculate your total protection, cap you need to do the following, [protection cap * (1 + % increase)]. If you had a protection cap of 100,000 and a percent bonus of 10% the equation would read [100,000 *(1 + 0.1)] which equals 110,000.

    PVP – Player versus Player: this occurs when one player attacks another player’s kingdom.
