The Races and Languages

Each of The Five Races is born with a natural, elemental language, a magical language that intertwines with their racial magic. They start talking at about six months.

Sadly, each Race cannot learn the natural languages of the other Races. They can, however, learn other languages.

Humans are the exception - they have no inborn language. They are sponges for languages, and can learn languages they hear easily as children. This still takes a few years, and as a result, this gave them the reputation of being "slow." Undermen are also born without a language, which hasn't helped this impression.

It was through humans that the Common tongue was born, a language that all of the Races can learn. It has borrowed from the magical languages of the Races, but the words are mongrelized.

As it is a mongrel language, the common tongue varies from region to region.

Kith and languages.

Much like the Races, each of the Kith is created with a language - or at the very least, the ability to communicate with each other.

  • Dragons and Naga both speak draconic
  • Takanispeak two different dialects of their language, pyrrhic
  • Trolls speak abyssal
  • Great Spiders have a hissing, clacking language
  • Urgoi communicate through thoughts and impressions
  • Dolphins communicate through an amazing song that only carries in the water
  • Outsiders claim to communicate through some sort of invisible light

Spiders and Dolphins are unable to speak more broadly, though some have adapted.

Urgoi require their hosts to speak for them.

Dragons, Naga, Takani and Trolls can all speak the common language.

Outsiders cannot speak except through a bezoar.
