Languages in Estarion

One of my players wanted to know about the kinds of languages spoken in Estarion. I decided that in addition to the usual racial languages, there are several different human tongues:


Language
Notes
High Aquilan
Automatic with Noble background.
Low Aquilan
This is “Common.” Those who speak Low Aquilan understand but do not speak High Aquilan.
Tarquaian
Spoken by the indigenous Tarquai people of the region.
Behdoon
Spoken by the nomadic Behdoon tribesmen from the northwest.
Kanian
Spoken by the seafaring merchants of the near east.
Farasi
Spoken by the eastern Empire of Ferisia, an expansionist nation ruled by a sorcerer-king and boasting decadence, great scholarship, and highly organized government, the greatest rival to Aquila.
Cathayan
The language of the far-eastern empire of Cathay, known as merchants and bureaucrats.
Kemri
The language of Western Kemric barbarians, known for their mystical connections to faeries, nature spirits, and natural lore.
Goetic
The language of Western Goetic barbarians, known as strong, brutal warriors, mercenaries, and traders.
