  • BM: Battlemaster. This refers to, of course, this game.
  • Bureau/Buro: Bureaucrat. A Class of character you can play as.
  • Cav: Cavalry

  • CW: Civil Work. Something you perform with your troops to increase a region's production.
  • IC: In Character. This refers to something to do with your character.
