Obviously the sequence below [PG-13 version] is Shield, Rocket, Champagne Cork, Bowtie, but what ridiculous names have you come up with to remember the contents of the Glyphtionary?

    My glyph vocabulary includes ears, pins, assorted bowties (some a bit worn), a few slashes of varying angles and lengths, many triangles, some hexagons, and a spiral. Oh, and toast, I know that one. 😅

    My wife uses "Harry Potter Sorting Hat" for "Shapers". :P

  • The "imperfect" glyph took me a long time to figure out how to draw.🥴

    I was so mad at that glyph i named it "pis-lort"

    which is Danish, and translate Into something like "p..is...s ....sh...it".. (sorry for The typing - Some filter wont let me post bad words)

  • Base, ship, legacy (somehow remembered that one), infinity. .... A lot of zigs and zags

    It's mix of fictitious and real names for me:

    Envelope, pac-man, kite, triangle, 'U', human, lie, have, future, etc.

    But my favourite is: human have strong path

    Like many agents, I followed a progression from using entirely fake names to using a mix of fake & real names, to eventually using exclusively real names. Fake names are a good crutch early on, and can work pretty well on shorter sequences, but my accuracy was always terrible on 5-glyph sequences until I learned the real names. I strongly encourage agents to try to learn the real words - the glyph sentences mostly make sense if you translate them.

    Unbounded = Cinnamon Roll

    I know what I'm having with coffee in the morning!

  • The first one is "Home plate."

    "Technology" was "tepee" for a while.

    "Equal" is still "Table" to me.

    "Harmony/Peace" is "wizard thing", no idea why, it just worked for me.

    "Civilization" is "open package"

    "Portal" is "big bowtie"

    "Perfection/Balance" is "Pendant"

    "XM" is "crushed box"

    I'm sure there are more I named myself, but those are the ones I remember with a quick scan.

    I'm very much in the "same word for multiple glyphs" camp. Somehow my brain remembers which it is even when I use the same word.

    All of these are 'mountain' for me:

  • daethnirdaethnir ✭✭✭

    These are all "javelin"


  • daethnirdaethnir ✭✭✭

    But these have ... more interesting names for me.

    Scary Clown:

    Grumpy Cat:

    Power Up (aka mushroom):

    Prince (the artist no longer formerly known thereas)

    Cancer (ribbon campaign)

    There are some more colourful names I won't put here, but they do lead to interesting combinations when you have alternate words. ;-)

    Hahahaha I love this one. This will help me with my new agents that come into the journal

  • Hammer and Scissor :-)

  • My community refers to 'Knowledge' as 'Pontiac,' which makes the sequence 'Human Legacy Abandon Old Pontiac' a lot more funny. I have that sequence on a shirt now.

    Also, they call 'Body' 'Panties.' Both are pretty funny :P
