(This topic was stolen from the Fortress forums, written by General Patton II and altered by a Pit Bull. Further fiddled with by Billy Forks - Thanks, A Pit Bull!) and again tweeked by Mein Sohn-(Thanks Billy Forks)

[*] Horde = A large group of zeds
[*] ID = The number that uniquely identifies a character
[*] Idle = If a player doesn't log in to a character for five days, the character becomes invisible to other players – 'idles out' - and effectively vanishes from the game. They re-appear if the player logs on again.
[*] IP hit = one refresh of the main map page. Limited to 160 per day per IP address
[*] In-Character, IC = If a player is talking or behaving as if they are their character, they are said to be In Character, or role-playing. The opposite is OOC, out-of-character

[*] Maxed Out = Used to either describe hitting 50 AP or acquiring all skills (often without the brain rot tree for survivors)
[*] Meatshield(ing), meatcade(ing) = A survivor staying in a building under attack, risking injury and death in order to make it harder for zombies to ruin the building

[*] MMORPG = Massively Multi-player Online Role-Playing Game

[*] Noob, Newbie = New player, or level 1 character. Noob is more derogatory, implying cluelessness rather than simple lack of experience.
[*] NT = Necrotech Building
[*] Parachuting = A survivor with an infection can kill themselves (by doing anything until their HP run out) inside a building and stand up as a zombie to bypass the barricades. This is parachuting

[*] Sleeping = When a player is out of AP, or is not currently playing
[*] Syringe = A NecroTech revivification syringe, used to turn standing zombies into revivifying bodies

[*] UD = Urban Dead
[*] VHB = Very Heavily Barricaded - survivors CANNOT enter from the street
