 +====== Glossary ======
 +
 +Here is a short list of terms used throughout ​ //Tales Untold //.  If you think a term deserves adding to this list, do let us know at [[talesuntold.larp@gmail.com]]
 +
 +==== Beans ====
 +
 +Beans are a [[Resources|Resource]] used by Mages to create [[Magic#​Scrolls|Magic Scrolls]]. ​ They can be collected by Mages from the Font of Magic, found on [[Combat#​Quests|Quests]],​ and collected by Monarchs from their [[Hundred_realms|Realms]] during [[Conquest]].
 +
 +==== Conquest ====
 +
 +The means through which wars are fought - a strategic endeavour enacted at the [[Conquest]] Map by [[Skills#​General|Generals]].
 +
 +==== Defining Moment ====
 +
 +A [[Defining_moments|Defining Moment]] is an important magical object which is created when something of great importance to a person'​s own personal story occurs. ​ These take the form of a blank golden scroll which once written should be sealed and when spent should given to a member of crew so that their power can be used and recorded.
 +
 +==== Dragons ==== 
 +
 +Large, scaly and magically powerful creatures. ​ Often known to breathe fire.
 +
 +==== General ====
 +
 +The military leader of a [[Hundred_realms|Realm]]. ​ Not necessarily (but not excluded from being) the same as a Monarch. ​ The exact title and reverence for it changes from Realm to Realm, but all share the ability to submit moves for [[Conquest]].
 +
 +==== IC (In Character) ====
 +
 +Information relevant to you as a character rather than you as a player.
 +
 +==== Joust ====
 +
 +A 2v2 fight between two Primary fighters and their appointed Seconds. ​ One of two types of [[Combat_Rules|Combat]] permitted within Camelot during certain times.
 +
 +==== Melee ====
 +
 +A free-for-all fight between many fighters. ​ One of two types of [[Combat_Rules|Combat]] permitted within Camelot during certain times.
 +
 +==== Monarch ====
 +
 +The ruler of a [[Hundred_realms|Realm]]. ​ Not necessarily (but not excluded from being) the same as a General. ​ The exact title and responsibility changes from Realm to Realm, but all share the ability to collect [[Resources|Resources]] from the Realm and are generally recognised as representatives of their Realm.
 +
 +==== Mortal Wound ====
 +
 +Suffered upon reaching the end of your Death Count while unconscious (or by select other means). ​ Once you have suffered a Mortal Wound you will die within an hour.  See [[Combat#​Bleeding_Out|Combat for more details]]
 +
 +==== OC (Out of Character) ====
 +
 +Information relevant to you as a player rather than you as a character. ​ Occasionally "​OOC"​ for Out Of Character.
 +
 +==== Phase ====
 +
 +A [[Conquest]] Phase, during which Orders are placed, corresponding with the Seasons of the year:
 +  * Phase 1 - Summer
 +  * Phase 2 - Autumn
 +  * Phase 3 - Winter
 +  * Phase 4 - Spring
 +  * Phase 5 - Midsummer
 +
 +==== Phys-Rep ====
 +
 +Shorthand for "​physical representation"​ - how we are representing aspects of the game world. ​ For example, the phys-rep for a sword is a LARP safe sword; the phys-rep for Magic Beans are black beads; the phys-rep for your character is you.
 +
 +==== Quest ====
 +
 +An endeavour outside of Camelot in which a small number of people will attempt to achieve some goal.
 +
 +==== Realm ====
 +
 +[[Hundred_realms|Realms]] make up the world that once was known as Albion. ​ Realms are made of a number of Territories. ​ All characters are from a Realm and the list of realms [[Hundred_realms|can be found here]]. ​ Each Realm has a Monarch who may collect [[Resources|Resources]] from the Realm and decree who may pass through it, and a General who decides its actions for [[Conquest]].
 +
 +==== Resources ====
 +
 +See also: [[Resources|Resources]]
 +
 +Components that generally can be generated, found, traded, and used in the creation of [[Magic|Scrolls]]. ​ Common resources are Beans, Blood, [[Defining Moments]], and Riches, but other resources may be generated by Territories (such as wood or grain)
 +
 +==== Riches ====
 +
 +A broad term for referring to gold, jewels, coins and other shiny objects.
 +
 +==== Territories ==== 
 +
 +These are smaller regions which make up [[Hundred_realms|Realms]]. ​ These can change ownership through [[Conquest]].
