    It's a poor dictionary. It even doesn't contain "pwned".

    In this type of role-playing it's forbidden to use netspeak or daily slang, we even frowned upon using "OK". But everyone mostly spoke regular slangless English or "Tolkien English" at least, I was the only one who took it a bit far and used the words you see in the dictionary I attached

    I see. So, that's a special game-language, not common slang of the gamers, right?

    I wouldn't call it "game language", that makes it sound too esoteric for my liking. It's a glossary for poetical, Shakespearean, and archaic words. Didn't you read the description of this dictionary? I didn't even say it's for "gamers", I said "role-players". Moreover, the very title says "poetical" and "archaic", that should also be a clue-in

    To make sure it's understood - This is the exact opposite of Netspeak, slang, or leetspeak for that matter.
