In another thread, I already saw someone shorten Guildleves into GLs, which sounds good to me. What else do you think will be shortened?
Obviously we don't have many names of things yet, but we can start with the races.
Lalafell - LFs or Fells (I don't particularly want to be called a Lala ;P)
Elezen - Ele sounds good to me (pronounced ell-eh)
Hyur - Meh, already short enough. Hyur is fine.
Roegadyn - Hmm...maybe Roegs, or RDs. Roegs sounds like it would stick better.
Miqo'te - Yay, random apostrophe. Not even sure how to pronounce this one. I like Miq, or Miqo.
As far as the general disciplines, well this seems pretty easy to me. We've got Disciples of the Hand, Disciples of the Land, Disciples of War, and Disciples of Magic. DoH, DoL, DoW, and DoM works for me.
The only city-state so far that really needs an abbreviation IMO is Limsa Lominsa, which would just be LL, or maybe just Limsa.
Anyway, those are just a few things to throw out there. Thought this might be a fun thread. What else can you guys think of so far? Any changes to what I've already suggested? Maybe we could keep this updated as more info is released, as sort of a guide for the future?
