Common RPG Terms in Achaea
Often, role playing games can have their own lingo. If you're new to Achaea, you'll probably hear phrases you haven't heard in other rpg games before. This basic list of common terms should help you adapt better!
The 'realms': Generally speaking when someone logs in they have 'entered the realms', and when they log off they have 'left the realms', when they are gone they are 'not in the realms', and when they're around, well, it's gotten redundant and I think you get the point.
Aeon: Aeon literally means lag, and if something is laggy it is Aeonic. Aeon came to mean lag from the time that the affliction Aeon slowed your actions, and the Aeon affliction itself was crafted in the name of the Achaean god Aeon himself. He is, in short, the God of time, and thus whenever 'time' isn't flowing right it's blamed on Aeon. Example: You're fighting a friend, and suddenly everything freezes up because of lag. You lose, obviously, and blame it on 'Lord Aeon', because you died to lag. If everyone is having lag problems because of a server issue, then you might complain about the realms being Aeonic, or laggy.
Daydreaming: A way of saying someone is AFK or not paying attention to their character without breaking role play.
Credits: An in-game currency that can be bought with real life money or earned you're a diligent worker. You can earn them in-game by levelling, and buying them off the credit market, as well as given to you by friends. If you're going to play an Iron Realms game you enjoy you're likely to make plenty of credits as you do anyways, though a small donation can't hurt.
Artefacts: Enhanced weapons or magical items that can be bought with credits, granting the unique powers. Such items include healing rings, high-damage battleaxes and even completely customized pets that never die.
Loyals: Any creature or NPC that belongs to a player or an organization is a 'loyal'. You'll hear this term a lot as a newbie, as you'll often be warned not to attack any loyals!
