Suggestions and requests very welcome.

EBZ = Ebz = Echo Bazaar: The original name of the game.

Echoes: The currency of the Echo Bazaar. It is rare to earn them in-game. Usually you have to sell something to get them.

EPA = E/A = Echoes Per Action. A way of measuring how worthwhile a storylet or story arc is, generally used by people grinding Echoes. It's based on the sell value of the resources, and the chance of success is considered in the estimated EPA when it isn't 100% certain.

ES = Exceptional Story. Exceptional Friends get one every month.
