Since Tibia started, players have created ways to say some words easier and faster. This is considered anti-roleplaying, but most people use these abbreviations in everyday conversations.

There are some roleplayers that refuse to use these words and even refuse to use chat channels. Instead they will use the default channel (if they are standing near the other person), or write letters to converse with a player that is further away.





ISO 639 / 3166 codes: real life language / country / ethnicity

ISO 3166 and ISO 639 document standards for shorthand country / language names. These are used for many applications (on the Internet especially), and as such, Tibians have largely adopted the same standards. Note that it can be used both as an adjective (a pl guild - a Polish guild) and a noun (a br - a Brazilian); further, it is often used by natives to inquire about other players' nationality. A Brazilian is likely to ask thus, "br?", asking whether the correspondent is from Brazil or speaks the language spoken there (i.e. Portuguese). Note too that it is unlikely to hear Americans, Canadians, Australians, or many Europeans asking. The reason lies in the education systems around the world, i.e. there is either a lack of English education in some areas or there is not enough foreign (non-English) language taught.

This is not a complete list, as there are too many nations to cover. For additional codes see The official ISO 639-1 code list.
