Hello all

I've played a few werewolf (online) games now, and allthough I know what some acronyms mean, I don't know what their original words are. Can someone help me out and maybe post some more please?

I'll start out with what I know

RL: real life
RRS: random role seer

What I understand, but don't know
AFK
FUD

Don't know
OOC

Mmmmm, there's more, but I cannot think of any more right now. I'll add some when I stumble upon them.

Thanks for your help.
Ann

OOC could also be 'out of context'
which I guess comes to the same thing. IMHO.

IRL = In Real Life
SO = Signifigant Other
WTF = please politely explain what you were thinking
SOB = You remind me of someone I know
Lynch Xandryyte = I don't have a clue who's guilty, so this is the default action.

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

I don't think I've been involved in a game where I haven't typed Vote xandryyte. It doesn't seem odd or anything. Like a pair of big comfy slippers. Vote xandryyte. Happiness.

I remember that one. That's the one where I devise a "brilliant" plan. The irony is that it turned out to be true. (meaning we should have voted for Xandryyte instead of Jmilum or Seanp)

And I was the only one who saw through it and voted for Jmilum. It was 13 to 1.

Oh wait, actually I thought is was seanp and I was voting for jmilum as a signal to the wolves that I was the sorcerer. zombie

I like that one IATWSIAW. I'll use it once, and see what happens (might get killed over it)

I'm almost done...


Have I mentioned that I hate the witness role? ha. That was a very frustrating game - I couldn't believe that people fell for jmilum's trick. But once they believed it, anything I said made me look more guilty.

And you can adapt it to other users with a S name, so you could have I Am The Witness, SkyKnight X is a Wolf or I am The Witness Slyde is a Wolf or....

Come to think of it, it is not such a good idea.

And if you will note, seanp, the Witness role doesn't appear that much in that incarnation anymore... It's more likely that the Lighthouse 3 incarnation is used... Which is a good thing...

I had to be told that IMHO was "In my Humble Opinion" a million times before I got it.

IIRC I managed to figure out was "If I Recall Correctly."

I use BTW for "By the Way" all the time.

OMG, for Oh my Gawd! or Oh my goodness! (To which my Grandmother always replies: "Your goodness had nothing to do with it!")

I only use vote Xandryyte when she correctly identifies that I'm evil. As much as I can tell when she's innocent, she can detect when I'm evil soblue

WAH!!!! = Wolf, Arkibet? Hardly!!!! I think I need to use that one when people falsely accuse me. I seem to be getting my right of passage with first day lynches.

Oh! And I see people use: OT for "Off Topic."

And Melissa usually does it in baby sized font.

Actually, OT stands for "On Topic" as well.
