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