Heyya guys! This is Seth ^.^ The author one, not the character ^.^
So I thought that even though people might be interested in RPG, they might not know the language. Yes, there IS a RPG language and I sometimes use words from it, such as Mob, IRL, XP etc.
So I just wanted to write a chap about the words and their meanings which I probably use in this work ^.^
P.S These are my personal notes so I don't know if they're understandable or not.
Also, I'll update this chapter if I use more shortened words ^^
