Or, the fiction based on the game. This includes any narratives, short stories found in Codices, novels, or game enrichment books (for example: The Art of Warhamemr 40k, or Liber Daemonica)

I really do hate abbreviation's lol

Jezlad 01-07-07 09:57 AM

They can be confusing at times - hence this thread.

Which of the following would you prefer?

Chaplain and Death Company
Jump Pack, Melta Bombs, Lightning Claw, Bolt Pistol and Frag Grenades


Chappy and DC
JP, MB, LC, BP and FG

Both are easy to understand. I suppose it depends how fast you type


Stella Cadente 01-11-07 09:19 PM

I really prefer the first one lol, no surprise, it just looks neater and more intelligent, Abbreviations just seem to make you look lazy and dumb lol

Actually, when used appropriately, abbreviation serves to make writing quicker and smoother to read, as well as generally being more elegant. It's only when lazy people find out the power of abbreviation that we've got trouble.
