For all those who do not know what IMHO or LOL means, here is a list that I will try to keep up to date. To the experienced guys I would like to ask and help me bij either PM abbrevs to me or putting them in the post. As it is for the new members mainly, please keep this one serious and forward those that are really used! Though I could't resist the list at the bottom Thanks to Neoliminal for making an adjustment in categories. :smoking:

If you see two explanations you'll have to figure out yourself the one that's meant.

Please do correct if the spelling is wrong! :oops:

Note most skills the convention of using the first letter of each word so PO = Piling On, SS = side step, etc.

Blodge = Block and Dodge
FF = fan factor

Point is I want to make it an easy acces sticky. I know there's lots of them spread around in threads all over the board. This makes things a lot easier for everybody, or so I hope. :smoking:

POW is the cloudy result on the dice. The others are Pow/dodge, Pushback, Skull, Block/skull.

NAF is Nuffle Amorical Football.

Here is a new one.

OBERWALD. I'm not kidding this is an abbreviation.
If I remember correctly, it meant Online Bloodbowl Enthusiasts Rules(?) With something, something something....
Man, I forgot :cry:
