As a new user/member of not only Choice of Games and its forum, but interactive fiction in general, I have found that with this awesome community comes it’s own lingo. It can be quite overwhelming for new users, at least it was for me.
Therefore, my hopes in creating this thread is to help new users like me dive right in by providing acronyms and slang that I often come across.
I hope you can add to the list as well!
This is what I’ve gathered so far:
CoG = Choice of Games
HG = Hosted Games
IF = interactive fiction
IFcomp = The Interactive Fiction Competition
CS = ChoiceScript
CSIDE or ChoiceScript IDE= ChoiceScript Integrated Development Environment
MC = main character
Li or LI = love interest
RO = romantic option
WIP = work in progress
Dashingdon = person but also domain for hosting your games
What acronyms/slang did you have trouble with when you first started?
