    Threw together this topic real quick. Am I missing anything? Any tag need a better explanation?

    Also, Lioness may prefer to combine this list with her useful links list instead of having a separate topic.

      Is this the place for defining popular fan-coined terms, like Splat, Fanon, Solaroid, the many mispronounced names of Chejop Kejak, the many nicknames of The Scarlet Empress, and other such nonsense?


      I post Artifacts in this thread. How I make them is in this thread.
      I have made many tools and other things for 3rd Edition. I now host all of my creations on my Google site: The Vault of the Unsung Hero

        That may work better as a separate section, "Exalted Forum Slang". If someone types it up, I can add it to the topic.

          Yeah, I think we need that, personally.

          Do we want this to be a homebrew directory, too, or do a different post for that?

            No, let's bury the word "solaroid" and forget it ever happened.


            She/Her. I am literal-minded and write literally. If I don't say something explicitly, please never assume I implied it. The only exception is if I try to make a joke.
            My point of view may be different from yours but is equally valid.

              Nah. Let's make that a separate post and we can put a link here.

                Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

                  I said it once and I'll say it again. I'll stop using Solaroid the MOMENT that you folks provide a better way to refer to Solars, Abyssals, and Infernals.

                  (Granted that doesn't really come up too often anymore, what with us not having stats to encompass all of them. Only maybe in relation to the Martial Arts Mastery keyword?)

                    "Solars, Abyssals & Infernals"? You didn't say it had to be short, just better than "Solaroid".

                      You're a cheeky punk, ya know that? :P

                      I realize it's personal taste, yeah, but I actually rather like the way 'Solaroid' sounds. And to me, 'Solaroid' is a much easier and quicker thing to say than "Solars and their dark reflections", which the book does when discussing Mastery.

                        Yes, I know that. And I make the most that knowledge, and my ability to duck. Generally in that order.

                        Actually on-topic, do we need to wait until it's confirmed what Abbysals (and possibly Infernals) are before that term gets resolidified? It feels like we may end up with a wealth of terms to talk about the new Exalts as well.

                          I'm of the opinion if it is a term used on the forum, it should be defined. A new person is going to go "What the fuck is a Solaroid?" and check the glossary. Even if that definition says "Fan-Created Second Edition term for Solars, Infernals, Abyssals."

                            Agreed. If we omit terms because we personally dislike them, then we aren't fulfilling the mission of the post. We are also being arrogant asshats in claiming dominion over the "right" words to discuss Exalted.

                              Randomly; OP is also used to interchangably refer to the original post of a thread or the person who posted it.

                              Only thing that really jumped out at me, don't know if its that important.
