    Neocron Dictionary

    This guide is a derivative of Friendly Ghost's "Neocron Dictionary" from way back in the day. I've updated it removing old entries and adding new entries. Authoisation has been gained from Friendly Ghost for the reproduction and updating of this guide.

    Below is a list of commonly used lingo in the world of Neocron, at least on the Terra server but this guide may well apply to other servers (None-English Speaking) as well. Obviously the world of Neocron is constantly changing and everybody loves dropping that extra letter or two just to confuse everybody, so by all means this guide will never be completly uptodate. But here goes:

    Sometimes abbreviations show up; in such a case you may see things like "Jeriko" instead of "Jeriko Fortress", "Krupp" instead of "Krupp Factory", "Regant's" instead of "Regant's Legacy", or "Avenger" instead of "Avenger mines". I'm not going to list them all, because there are too many locations to keep track of if I would do that. Just check the world map and you'll find what they're talking about.

    Inside cities, other forms of shortcuts are used to provide information on current whereabouts. For example, inside Neocron City people will simply say they're in "plaza 2", leaving out the "sector" in between. In very extreme cases, or in small places such as Tech Haven, they might directly say "I'm in TH 2", which means he/she is in Tech Haven Sector 2. These too are too much to keep track of, so I'll skip them. You'll learn them with time, and use.

    Very extreme forms of shortcut can also be seen in the form of single letters. In such cases, a location like "plaza sector 2" will simply appear as "P2". The Pepper Park sectors will have their own as well ("Pepper Park sector 3" will thus appear as "PP2"). "Via Rosso 3", to mention another example (and exception), will appear as "Via3".

    If you're travelling outdoors, you will likely no longer see any of the above terms locations. Instead, the players will reveal their whereabouts by using the map sectors. If a player says he's currently in "E_05", to find him you'll need to open the world map screen and intersect the row and column mentioned.

    In the case of this player, he's likely somewhere in the mountain range around Tech Haven. In short, they talk using the coordinate system of the world map.
