        }
}

//I think it may be because I'm using 'public' wrong? I have no idea. Please help.

You are declaring the Ensconced and Comrades variables inside the LoadVocabulary method so they only exist inside that method. If you want to be able to access them in another method as well then they need to be declared outside both.
