    A very nice list, great work Jekev.

    Locations:

    FL - First Light (practically the farthest point from the PCG Village but since GD is on there and it may come up at some point.)
    SH - Silent Hill.

    Spells:
    RT - Rotting Touch (less and less likely to find as time goes on but at least two people in the wider village community have swords with this.)

    The spells list has also been duplicated. There are probably loads more we use in daily conversation, but don't realise it.
