    1. Introduction
    Travian is a fairly popular war game. Over its history, its players have developed many different terms to reference in-game happenings and phenomena. It began as simply slang and abbreviations, but has developed into a lingo of its own. I'm sure a linguist would be fascinated by this development.

    Many times, a new player comes and has no idea what is going on. They don't know what a hammer is, or what it means when someone calls them a farm. Thus, for the benefit of new players, I am attempting to compile this glorified list, or as I like to call it, dictionary, of Travian terms in the hopes of helping new people become immersed in this fun game.

    ~J&H

    2. Features
    The entries in this dictionary are arranged by alphabetical order, to the best of my ability. Also given are other ways something is referred to, eg. wheatkill can be called croplock, wheatlock, cropkill or whatever. It also gives a brief description of what each term means. Some terms, such as the names of ingame buildings or troops, are pretty obvious; on the other hand, colloquial terms such as "zero" and "bubble" may be more difficult to figure out.

    This dictionary comes with a built-in search and find option. Simply hit "CTRL + F" and type in the term or abbreviation you're looking for.

    3. Submissions
    If you have a term or a correction, please...post here or message to one of the editor people.

    calvary - a hill outside Jerusalem reported to be the site of the crucifixion of Jesus
    cavalry - people on horseback carrying weapons

    I'm just sayin'...

    No self respecting grammar nut would allow the entry on Natars to stand.

    It's funny to joke about Jono being the ultimate simmer on the flame boards, but anyone that thinks he meets the rest of the definition (doesn't build troops/doesn't interact with other players) is just plain high. Burying flames in the dictionary cheapens the project imho.

    I would edit the entry on waves to be more specific - it's usually used specifically to refer to cats or fakes.

    Listing things by their proper in game name and then showing their shortened form isn't as usefull to a new player using your dictionary as the oppositte would be. I would suggest listing things the other way around - for example Prats - Praetorians, Roman infantry unit with low attack, low cavalry defense and high infantry defense. A new player is more likely to look for Prats in the dictionary than Praetorians.

    Listing things by their proper in game name and then showing their shortened form isn't as usefull to a new player using your dictionary as the oppositte would be. I would suggest listing things the other way around - for example Prats - Praetorians, Roman infantry unit with low attack, low cavalry defense and high infantry defense. A new player is more likely to look for Prats in the dictionary than Praetorians.

    Calvary: It doesn't really matter... I could put an entry telling the differences between infantry and calvary atk/def if I wanted.

    Jono: It's a joke, not a flame. And there is a real definition there as well.

    Waves: Can consist of whatever you want. This is a dictionary, not the Travian wiki or a strategy guide.

    Uhh, sure it is. Use the "search and find option. But whatsa Prat?

    Noobs don't search though, they just post in questions, and then get flamed and neg rep'd.

    I do agree, flip the definitions to have the slang first, as the actual troop types are defined in the manual, it's the slang that needs to be defined here.

    Your dictionary uses the word calvary repeatedly. The correct word is cavalry. I wasn't commenting on the difference between infantry and cavalry; I was commenting on the difference between calvary and cavalry. Even your response misses that point - calvary doesn't have atk/def. Calvary is a place. Cavalry is a type of military unit.

    Typos and mispellings are fine - but if you're serious about making a dictionary, then spelling counts, no? Same with the Natar entry... I don't get the point of calling yourself a grammar nut if you're going to end sentences in prepostions in a self purported dictionary.

    Leaving the reference to Jono in limits your audience to a group of people that don't actually need the dictionary. It's funny (if inaccurate) but also out of place.

    It's because of the damn autocorrect... I did this thing on MS Word... will fix it. And calvary probably did have attack and defense on it at one time, with the crusades and whatnot.

    Uhh, it's a dictionary. Like I said, when's the last time you saw dictionaries with sophisticated prose? Look through Webster; most entires there are what you might call "run-ons" and "incomplete" and "dependent clauses" and "fragments" and whatnot. By Natzee, I mean the use of English in a way that is easily understood basically.


    About noobs. This is meant to help people who start and have the intelligence and drive to learn more, such as me when I started. If i listed these terms by abbreviations and slang, it would make it harder for my "target audience" to find what they were looking for. The "noobs" wouldn't really try reading any way.

    I'm leaving the Jono reference. Because:
    1. It's my dictionary.
    2. The real definition is there as well, so no reason to make a big deal out of it.

    I've never seen a dictionary end a sentence in a preposition. Fix it, don't fix it, doesn't really matter to me in the long run. I am more than a bit baffled by your desire to leave an easily fixed grammatical error in a linguistic document, but it's your dictionary.

    It's grammatically correct, or at least perfectly understandable, IMHO.

    From is necessary , otherwise we'd have:

    Natars: A plot device. A CPU controlled player/tribe that people steal artifacts and world wonders .
    Which does not make sense.

    I could probably redo the whole sentence, but I have little inclination to do so seeing how the current definition makes sense to me.

    No. It is not grammatically correct, although it is perfectly understandable. Most spelling errors/typos and most grammar errors do not interfere with our ability to understand what is being said (see, for instance, that uber annoying block of text that infects far too many people's profiles containing words spelled incorrectly but with the first and last letter of each word in the correct spot... you can read and understand it, but it's still wrong)

    It is never correct to end a sentence with a preposition. There are some sentences ending in prepositions that are so awkward to fix that hardly anyone bothers - your sentence is not one of them. As someone has already pointed out, there is a simple fix to yours.

    Put comments in bold, suggestions in italics :P. You should probably omit anything that can be directly found in an FAQ or manuel, if you want this to be a lingo index. Artifact, Axeman, etc. shouldn't be in here: I suggest a sub-section with abbreviations to make it easy to look up =). If you want an actual dictionary I suggest finding an off-site host.

    You left the period off of Skype's definition, and you didn't capitalize push's.

    Also, didn't you make a poll on where the boonies are that came out as past 100/100?

    Here are some more:

    Administrator: (tribe specific: senators, chief, chieftain). Used to conquer enemy villages.

    Chiefs
    : The Gaul administrator on .us, and the Teuton administrator on .com, but more commonly used to refer to any administrative unit.

    Multi: An illegal account owned by someone that already has an account the same server.

    Hate Mail: IGM's send by a farm flaming the farmer. Most farmers love this.

    Flaming: Insulting someone.(Maybe add some to this.)

    HDP: The Horse Drinking Pool, a building that may only be built by Romans that lowers cavalry build time, and wheat consumption for cavalry.

    Wow, thanks!

    We've got some of those already on the offsite, J&H stopped updating the thread here when we went there, I'll add what we're missing.

    We've got some basic forum stuff on there, but not sure if we wanna go all out, the forums has its own lingo... *ponders*

    *edit* Decided to use CP, but for culture points, don't know how we missed that one...

    In the end all things betray you.
    Honor, ideals, heroism.
    Allies, comrades, lovers.
    Your eyes, your limbs, your heart,
    and in the end, you betray yourself.
    That is the greatest betrayal of all.

    I suggest you add these terms:

    QQ - Whining/Crying Example: "I got farmed!" "Cranny up, spend down, and stop QQing."

    Praetorians AKA Praets - Roman Infantry Defense




    QQ, I understand. It's not really used by Travian gamers, but by the gaming community as a whole. But forgetting praetorians? This is an outrage! (and no, this is not Sparta)
