I don't recall having seen this here: http://www.faqs.org/ologies-isms/index.html

I dunno even what to call it, but there's just some really great words and ideas. It's not quite a thesaurus. For example, I happened across the site by searching google for magic suffixes (-mancy, -lugry, etc).

http://www.faqs.org/ologies-isms/Lie-Mem/Magic.html

This not only gives some neat words and their meanings, like "prestidigitation", "thaumaturgism" and "abracadabrism", but it helpfully points us to related categories such as Alchemy and Divination.

Hopping over to Demons gives us things like "demonolatry", "nympholepsy", and "polydemonism".

Some neat words that could make your writing more gooder sounding.

This is a topic that is "topical" to us.

What does it take for you to read a homebrew setting?

There is a number of listed things (Is it art? Have you ever read a wall of text setting?, Is it the premise? Have you ever read a bog-standard fantasy homebrew setting?, Is it resources and rules alterations? Have you ever read a setting that was all fluff without a bestiary, special rules of laser swords, etc?, Is it word-of-mouth? Have you ever read a homebrew setting that you found online? Is it layout? Have you ever read a homebrew setting in a Google Doc? Bonus question: Have you ever run one?

Very curious to see what people think. Thanks!... and it follows the answers of others...
