    Heroes of Dragon Age Acronym List

    So after joining the forum a couple of days ago I noticed there were a lot of acronyms thrown around and no acronym list to help newbies figure out what people were talking about. So I decided to help out future newbies and create one. Hopefully it will get stickied to help out anyone new to the forum. Just a key to the following, if the acronym is a character, they are color coded to their rarity.

    Common = Brown
    Uncommon = Silver
    Rare =Gold
    Epic = Red
    Legendary = Green
    All other = White (or possibly Black depending if you are viewing this in a regular or mobile browser)

    So without further ado and in alphabetical order:

    AoE - Area of Effect (spells that hit everyone)
    AH - Arcane Horror
    AV - Aveline Vallen
    CG - Capital Games (the maker of HoDA)
    Cory - Corypheus
    CS - Charred Sylvan

    DD - Desire Demon
    DW - Dalish Warrior
    EA - The publisher of the Dragon Age games
    FAW - Fereldan Ash Warrior

    GEF - Grand Enchanter Fiona
    GG - Gate Guardian
    GWA - Grey Warden Alistar
    GWB - Grey Warden Bethany
    GWC - Grey Warden Carver
    GWM - Grey Warden Mage
    GWO - Grey Warden Oghren
    GWR - Grey Warden Rogue
    GWW - Grey Warden Warrior
    HD - High Dragon
    HO - Harvester Orsino
    HoDA - Heroes of Dragon Age
    LC - Large Creature (the big solo creature ex. Bear, Ogre, Sylvan or High Dragon)
    LotF - Lady of the Forrest
    LSL - Lay Sister Leliana
    Node - Any place to click on in a quest to fight PvE, including Challenges
    OC - Ogre Commander
    PD - Pride Demon
    PVE - Player vs. Environment (fights that use Energy)
    PVP - Player vs. Player (battles that use Stamina)
    QotBM - Queen of the Black Marsh
    RNG - Random Number Generator (how they determine what drops)
    SotB - Sten of the Beresaad
    TAM - Tevinter Arcane Mage
    TC - Templar Carver
    TLM - Tevinter Laetan Mage
    TOO - The Old One
    Toon - A generic name for any of your characters
    UC - Undead Challenge
    VA - Vengence Anders
    VT - Varric Tetheras

    If anything is incorrect, or anything should be added please let me know. I am new to the site and any help from those more experienced than me would be appreciated.

    So was it intentional that the two new toons for this week have inverse acronyms? BD an DB?

    Speaking of which, BD is already Brogan Dace, so is Belinda Darrow going to be...BelDar?

    And DB means...well, you know.

    Should we continue to use SW for Shah Wyrd and maybe use Sky for Skywatcher?

    Great info for the Chrome users. I'll include the resource later when the new list is validated by a few more people.

    Updated with 'dred. Forgot that one.

    Are there any other "Ser" out there? If not maybe just Ser?

    You can download it here: Helper of Dragon Age. If you're not sure what to do with that link, just click "Download ZIP" on the right sidebar and once you've unzipped it, drag the .crx file to your chrome://extensions page.

    Let me know if you have issues or suggestions, either on incorrect/missing abbreviations or or how the extension could work better in general. I didn't bother coming up with a new Popline theme, but if anyone wants to whip up something more appropriate than a cheerful light blue, be my guest.

Forum Rules and Disciplinary Actions

These rules set boundaries to ensure that the Heroes of Dragon Age game and forums continue to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of topics. As Heroes of Dragon Age and its forums are available to players 13 and older, refrain from excessive cursing/swearing. For more information, please see this link.

By accessing the EA Capital Games applications, users agree to accept that game administrators and moderators may remove any content submitted by a player as defined below. Users agree to EA Terms of Service as well. Misrepresenting oneself to engage in illegal activity will be immediately reported to EA for legal action.

Even though these are forums to allow free expression of ideas, there are other (real) people involved and one should respect their opinions and questions as ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE TOPIC HEADINGS. Moderators are here to uphold and enforce these rules and the Terms of Service. Freedom to express your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and feedback, does not allow you the freedom of saying anything you want when you agree to the Terms of Service.

Unless otherwise stated, courses of action will be as follows:

1. First Offense - Warning
2. Second Offense - 3 day ban
3. Third Offense - 1 week ban
4. Fourth Offense - Permanent ban


If you have received a Permanent ban, this will extend to all future accounts created. If you are discovered to create a new account, it will also be banned.


What is not permitted in the discussion forum:

Advertising
Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell, or peruse any products or services including other applications or accounts, along with chain letters and junk mail.

Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and closed or deleted, and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.


Hatred
Racism, bigotry, misogyny, hate speech, discrimination against any race, sexual preference, gender, or religion will not be tolerated.

All topics/posts will be deleted. Death threats, even joking, will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning, with further review from the Lead Moderator.


Flaming
Flaming includes material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing.

As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will. All posts/threads will be deleted.

Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.


Right to Privacy
You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing, against another member's will, any information that is private and personal. Nor will you post private communication between EA Capital Games Support, other forum members, moderators, community managers, administrators, EA Capital Games employees, or partners of EA Capital Games on these forums or anywhere else.

Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

Discussing or posting of another player's spending habits will be deleted.


Spamming
Obvious spam (repetitive nonsense posts) will result in the poster permanently banned and all posts deleted.


Porn
Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums.

Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. Forum poster will be permanently banned from the forums.


Warez
Providing or asking for information regarding the illegal downloading of "warez", "gamez" or any other software protected by copyright.


Future Events/Promotions
Any posts or threads revealing future events or promotions that were not disclosed by the Capital Games team will be deleted.


Cross-posting
Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.


Cheating
The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.


Off-Topic Posting
Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


Political Posting
Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.


Customer Support Inquiries
All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


What happens if I break the rules?
At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

Posting Suggestions
In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum.
