When entering a dungeon in a party in Stein.world, communication is vital. As not everyone has access to Discord or even just a microphone, often the chat is needed for communication. To make communication in battle quicker and more efficient, more or less universally agreed upon abbreviations (I'm really not sure if this is the right word, correct me if I'm wrong) exist for commonly used expressions. This article will provide al list of the most important of these abbreviations.
