Dragearen From my understanding, that's how it will be, newt.
10-11-09 11:54 AM
newt_e Quick question: A number of the abbreviations are already used abbreviations (e.g. SB in Dragearen's post is for Skavenpelt Banner, but it's already in use for Short Bow). When you've applied these changes, will SB show Short Bow and Skavenpelt Banner?

Two questions...
1) Do you want me to do the brettonian enchanted items as well or are they too obscure?
2) do you need the wood elf army book done as well?
If an abbreviation is likely to appear in a rules discussion or someone's army list, it needs an entry. Unless it's just an abbreviation that nobody uses because it's awkward or another term is used in its place, it should go in. Haiving definitions for obscure items is probably more useful than common ones since less people will know what it means without this.

As far as what we need goes, if you don't see it in this thread, we do not have it. I know nothing of Fantasy, so I haven't added anything that hasn't been handed to me.

Dragearen, many thanks for the new definitions. Could you do me a favor and put them in the right format though, so I don't have to edit them when I upload?

For example, your first one should be...
Ob, obby
Obsinite (p23 AB:LM)

commas separating the abbreviations, parenthesis around the page citation (no comma before it) and AB is in caps.

I know it sounds nitpicky, but that's all stuff I'd have to fix when I put it in, rather than just copy/pasting.
