Reserved letters and non-letter Characters

Reserved letters are for custom terrains in user-made campaigns. In addition to these it is currently also possible to use other characters not on the above list to represent custom terrain, such as ½ § @ % [ ] etc., but new "official" terrain may be assigned for these characters in the future. So when creating custom terrain, the letters marked as reserved on the above list should be used first. Use campaign definitions (see CampaignWML) to prevent your custom terrains from interfering with other campaigns.


  • UtBS uses: @ ^ & *
  • FtF uses: @ ^  % '
  • Wesvoid uses:  % *
  • Seed of Evil: ^
  • no other UMCs above version 0.3 uses non-letter character for custom terrains.
