These "Quality projects..." -Kevan
Brought to you by 2 Cool and friends!

This page serves the purpose of informing players and spectators of Urban Dead of the wide and colourful range of colloquialisms, abbreviations, and terminology specific to the game. It is an exploration of the linguistics behind day to day life in Malton, and also hopes to create a concise documentation of the unique language of the MMORPG we all love so much.

So whether you're a "n00b", a die-hard trenchie, a rotter, griefer or death cultist, or you simply want to fit in with your group of UD-playing friends without stooping to playing an online RPG, then...

Types of Players
