[PDF] – Assorted Slang & Terminology: Volume 3 – Collective Nouns

Assorted Slang & Terminology: Volume 3 – Collective Nouns

A collective noun is a name for a collection or group of things. Rather than saying “that group” or “or those (x) over there” you would use a collective-noun to give the group/collection its proper name.

The following format is used for each entry:
[subject] [collective noun]

This would tell you that, for example, the collective noun for a group of apes would be a troop – “We must be careful, there is a large troop of apse that live here and they don’t like visitors”

This publication is divided up into three main sections:
1. Animals – Anything from the natural world
2. People – For groups of people, such as cowboys
3. Things – Anything else not covered by the first two sections

Examples/Samples

Animals
Ants ...

Helpful List – Arbitrary Collection 7

Every week on the Ennead Games blog, normally on a Friday, a helpful list of 20 items is posted. These normally follow no set pattern or theme, unless there has been a request for a particular list, but a few are based off real-world subjects. Some tables are expanded further into full lists or generators, and others work just fine on their own.

The subjects range from names from faraway lands, to what you might call your coins, to weapon names and more. There may be a common theme for the volume, then again, there might not be. They have been brought together into a handy and eclectic collection, a mixture of Fantasy, Sci-Fi and other genres.

Inside this volume, you’ll find lists for…

  1. Coin Name
  2. Container
  3. Damage Type
  4. Emotions – Negative
  5. Emotions – P...

Assorted Slang & Terminology Volume 2 – Nautical

Land-lubbers, Port, Abeam. These and many others words can seem odd and almost alien to those not of a nautical nature.

But worry not, the ASAT Guide is here to help you, the GM or storyteller.

Within is a collection of terms used by those who travel the numerous seas and ocean. Some terms are military based, others from sea-going merchants.

Using this guide is very simple, just go to the appropriate chapter for a word you are trying to find the meaning of, such as “abeam” and look up the translation.

Although this publication is designed for a game or story with terrestrial aquatic vessels, many cultures continue to use these terms if they eventually develop space flight.

Ship types, such as frigate or man-o-war have not been included a...
