Languages

All dwarves speak dwarven. Many of them also speak human and elven, the languages of their trade neighbors. Some also speak the goblin tongue, the language of their most constant enemy.

Other languages include:
  • Arachnid (spoken by the largest and most intelligent spiders as well as some eight-legged monsters, of which there are many).
  • Draconic (the language of dragons, but also arcane magic, making it rarely spoken by dwarves)
  • Eyebeast (beholders and their relatives)
  • Undercommon (a trade tongue shared by many kinds of earth-dwellers)
  • More to come.
