Be aware that rule/spell numbers are often used to describe an action. e.g. "I decided to 171 the town," means I decided to use the diplomacy spell, #171, to take the town. "I 320d the village" means "I used order #320 to have my emissary incite rebellion in the village."

If you see a 3-digit number being used this way, you can look it up in the commands list or the spell lists. Note, however, that if you're a newbie you may not have that spell on your kingdom's spell list. Even at the same level, different kingdoms have slightly different spell lists available.

For a while, my son ran a MLP chrome app that would 'ponify' all text it displayed (changing things like 'everyone' to 'everypony' and such). I wonder how hard that was to write....

DU for druid? Is that a new kingdom? What ever happened to the first two letters of the kingdom's name? Up until 30 seconds ago, I thought RD for Red Dragons was the only anomaly. /sigh Smile

Druids are in the playtest game 300.  They probably don't need to be on the list.

NAP - Non-Aggression Pact - General term for peace, usually with a proscribed end-date.  No universal interpretation, so make your expectations clear.

on the issue of Regions abbreviation - Instead of just using the number, I prefer the convention of placing an 'R' before the number , so 'R10' to refer to Southern Sands.

Druid is an official kingdom. The one in game 300 is a test version since Ry Vor has some other thoughts on the kingdom but Druids are for real. I don't know how many 1st cycle kingdoms will make the cut but here are their abbreviations:

BA = Barbarian
HA = Halfling
NO = Nomad
PA = Paladin
UR = Urik
SW = Swampmen
WE = Westmen

I'm also trying to convince Ry Vor to add a Centaur kingdom (abb: CE). And, WD is a new brigade type for Woodland Creatures (a spell that only Druid's may cast).
