A full and an empty spark.
SP - Usually Spirit Points, used to learn new skills. SP are gained from killing monsters and doing quests, but unlike EXP you do not lose SP upon death. SP may also be short for Secret Passage, the location of FB29, Qingzi, Dismal Shade, and Silver Frost.
Spark - An additional 100 chi beyond what is shown in the chi bar, shown to the right of the bar. You gain one spark at at levels 29, 59, and 89. May also refer to the Spark Burst, Spark Burst+, or Celestial/Demonic Eruption skills, which use up one, two, or three sparks, respectively, and cause your attacks to do extra damage while providing brief invulnerability (i.e. "Don't spark or you'll steal aggro."). May also refer to the venomancer Lending Hand skill, which allows the venomancer to transfer a spark to another player (i.e. "Spark me, please.").
Squishy - Characters that are easily killed or being in a state where you are easily killed. Usually those with low HP and low physical defense.
Stack - To put several copies of something (usually a heal-over-time or damage-over-time) on at once, or a number of identical items placed in a single inventory slot, to conserve space. Only certain items can be stacked.
Sticky - A "sticky" forum thread is one that stays at the top of the forum, even above other newer threads. This is generally done only for important threads, so you should at least give the stickied threads a glance.
Str - Strength, one of your four primary statistics.
Subber - The person who pays the Ultimate Substances used to enter some areas of Twilight Temple.
SZ - Safe Zone, an area where PKing isn't possible, such as a city or town. An "Entering Safe Zone" or "Leaving Safe Zone" message will appear in the chat window when moving in or out of SZs.

Tab - The "Call to Duty: X" tablet items you get for an FB run every 10 levels or so, starting at level 19, or level 29 for Tideborn (see Call to Duty for details), or the act of using them at the pillar (e.g. "Safe to Tab now?"). May also refer to the TAB key, which can be used to select targets.
Tank - A melee character that can take a lot of damage, or playing that role in a squad. In PWI this is generally a barbarian.
Taunt - Related to Aggro. An ability that allows a player to pull the attention of a monster off of another player and onto him or herself.
TB - Tideborn, the race that includes the assassins and psychics.
Tele, TP, or Tport - Teleport. Each main town or city has a Teleportation Master, if you speak to them once it will permanently reveal that area with a waypoint. By speaking with a Teleport Master you can travel between cities instantly for a certain amount of coins. Also, the Illusion Stones in Archosaur allow you to teleport to dungeons and other places based on your level. Finally, the Teleport Stones and Teleport Incense are items that allow you to teleport.
Threat - Related to aggro. This is what a character "gives off" to generate or draw monster aggro.
Timer - When you leave a squad in an instanced dungeon you will normally get a 60 second countdown until you are automatically teleported out of the instance; this is the timer. If you have the lead when everyone else leaves the squad, then you will not get a timer unless someone invites you to another squad. So, if someone says that they didn't get the timer or "Timer, please!", then they're asking for someone to invite them so they can get the timer to exit the instance.
Thx - Thanks.
TL;DR - Too Long; Didn't Read. Unless used to note a summary of a long post, it's a rude but otherwise pointless statement of one's own laziness.
Toon - A name for player characters in the game.
Train - To lead a monster or monsters into another player. This is not a desired behavior.
TT - Twilight Temple, a level 60+ dungeon. It's broken up into chapters and sub-chapters, so TT 2-3 would be the third part of the second chapter of Twilight Temple. See Twilight Temple for details.

US - Ultimate Substance, an item used for making some other items or to do most Twilight Temple (TT) runs. It takes 5 Fine Lumber, 5 Refined Steel, 5 Rubstone Powder, and 5 Anthracite to make one US at the Twilight Forge: Materials found in both Arch and TT. See Twilight Temple for details.

Veno - Venomancer.
Vent - Ventrillo, a commonly used voice-chat utility.
Vit - Vitality, one of your four primary statistics.
VotS or VS - Valley of the Scarred, the third map to be unlocked in the Chrono Quest chain. Sometimes incorrectly abbreviated as "OVS" for "Old" Valley of the Scarred, but the "Old" isn't really part of its name.

W/O - Without.
