Expanding Our Vocabulary

I imagine this will be a recurring topic on this blog because RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons lend themselves to expanding one's vocabulary. In fact, the Pathfinder RPG's "Game Mastery Guide" dedicates a whole page to wonderfully rich and descriptive words every Gamemaster (GM) should know.

During last week's session, we learned the following words:

  • dexterity
  • constitution
  • charisma / charismatic
  • prestidigitation
  • cache
  • token
  • demesnes
  • stalagmites, stalactites, and columns
  • plebe
  • shaman
  • ziggurat
  • tapestry
  • monologue (and the quasi-words: monologuer and monologuing)
  • heptagon

There were some others I forgot to write down.

There's an interesting thread here on the subject.
