New Recruits, New Candidates, Friends of the Guild, and Members,

This idea came about one night while on a raid with some new recruits... I thought back to my first raid with Vis Veres, and some of the terms and about some of the phrases tossed around during the raid that I didn't quite understand.  The veteran players can sympathize with you that sometimes the lingo used on these higher end raids can be intimidating and scary while you are getting use to it, but when you add to it what is refered to as Vis Veresean, it gets downright frightening.  Vis Veresean is a mix of language from some of our English butchering raid leaders... *cough* Synisalo*cough*.

So fear not new Vis Veres Recuits and Candidates, Friends of the Guild, and some of you older members who have been missing from the camp fire for a while... the ole ranger is here to let you in on a few phrases and words used around the old camp site, and maybe a few chuckles once you are in on the joke too.

So, for all the full members of Vis Veres and Veteren Players that come in here, please add to this post with terms that the new recruits and our friends can expect to see when they raid with us or go traversing the world of Norrath with our family.  I will try to combine the additions to an alphabetical list here.

*All updates to original definitions will be done in purple.


BAH!

Main Entry: BAH!
Pronunciation:
BAH!
Function: verb, noun, adjective
Etymology: Tanje
Submitted by:
Qaeen
1 : Bald Alliance Homies is a group of sexae people who choose to not partake in the silly notion of having hair. We are easily identified by the beautiful dome we show off. We have female members who are BAH!ettes aka cheerleader. Members of BAH! can be identified in guild chat by the customary retort of “Hail BAH!“ when a BAH! members comes on and says “All Hail BAH“. The BAH!ettes reply with “/cheer“.

Normal Usage:
“All hail BAH!“
“I am a BAH!ette“
“Qaeen is the all mighty leader of BAH!“
“To BAH! or not to BAH!“

Synonyms:
BAH!

*update* Recent headlines have given strong indication that the orgnization known as BAH! may currently be at odds with an organization known as The Mullet Militia.  While not much is known about The Mullet Militia, recent photographs and documents uncovered by The Norrathian Intelligence Agency (NIA) and leaked to the Norrathian Associated Press (NAP) have clearly indicated turmoil between the two camps.  At the time of the printing of this document, no members of BAH! were available for comment, however a person close to the BAH! organization speaking on the condition of anonymity stated that statistics from a recent poll conducted by BAH! found that 99.9% of Norrathian women find bald men "sexaer" than men with hair, especially mullets.  According to the study, the "chrome dome" is beautiful.  The results of this study have, at the time of this document, not been verified.

Mullet

Main Entry: Mullet
Pronounciation:

Mewzee

Hulkling
2: to be used solely to describe the halfling paladin named Hulkling to annoy the heck outta him just to see his eyebrows go like this >_< out of annoyance.
3 : A hair style noted to be relatively short on top and longer (at least shoulder length) in the back.

Normal Usage:
“Hello mullet.“ - when addressing Hulkling
“Look at that mullet over there!“ - when pointing at Hulkling and laughing with others at him when he turns to look
“Boy these guys remind me of this one mullet named Hulk.“ - to describe how annoying some people are in this game when they remind you of something Hulk would do or say.

*update* The "mullet" hair style has become the trademark of an organization calling themselves The Mullet Militia.  Not much is known about The Mullet Militia at this time, as all attempts to infiltrate the organization have failed and spies sent to attempt infiltration are later seen sporting a "mullet" hair style and denying any knowledge of such an organization.  Recent documents uncovered by the Norrathian Intelligence Agency (NIA) suggest that The Mullet Militia may be secretly planning to undermine and overthrow the organization known as BAH!.

*update* Using a simple werewolf illusion, and exploiting the naivity and the general ignorace of those who wear mullets, Edyll has been able to successfully infiltrate the Mullet Militia where even the most skilled rogues failed. It turns out they don't actually do anything, in fact, it's just a buzz word thrown around by those jealous of BAH!. This also explains why the second baldest member of BAH! sports a full pelt of hair on most occasions.
