Zorg Empire Words Guide by Witchywoman
There have been many questions about some of the words used. I have taken the time to write up the ones that I could think of. I have attempted to put them in alphabetical order but may have missed some as nobody is perfect? yeah not even the Witchy. I ask that you not try to tear this list apart with comments as it is not for those of you who already know what the terms mean, it is geared toward the new player. If you see or know of one that I have not already posted, please feel free to PM me and I will add it into the list with a tag giving you credit for the contribution. Again, please keep any comments you may have to a helpful level. If you see something that I have posted that you think is in error?. PM me?. and I will correct it in my post. Let?s try to keep helpful guides to minimal posting as it is frustrating to have to go through loads of pages just to get information.
