System Abbreviation List - Updated 16th October 2011
If you're setting up a game for a particular system, just include one of these codes in the title, and it will make it easier to find with the Search on the site's main page.  So don't call your game, for example "Terror of the Bog Men", call it "Terror of the Bog Men - ADnD2", then anybody searching specifically for Second Edition Advanced D&D games will be able to find it easier...

Note that these are listed in order of game title (not of abbreviation).  Some systems will appear more than once, since they can be known by various names.

If a game abbreviation has one or more "+" signs in it, those are there to pad the length to four characters.  This was suggested by another user, and was a good idea, even if the way he presented it did suck.
