I was just reviewing character sheets and I realized I havent disclosed much about languages. Like in RL, the dominant languages have dialects of their own depending on where they are located. You begin with one language relevant to your history, which does not have to be Common. The dominant languages of Nerul are...
Rhenyr (Common) - the dominant language of the international community. It developed as a trade language during the Ikarian Empire. It is spoken mostly in Maor, Anthropos, and Manava.
Rha'lis - the "old world" language of Anthropos. Many anthrosians speak it as a second language. Older generations resent the popularity of rhenyr, believing the harsh tones of orenic have butchered the melodic slender of rha'lis.
Orenic - the language of maorens. The orens to the north speak an older dialect. The language of rhenyr adopted many symbols from orenic.
Old Orenic - see above.
Asyri - the language of the manavir. Asyri ironically has the least influence in rhenyr due to its difficulty, however, the international language has adopted asyri numerical symbols entirely.
Yinjet - the language of the now reclusive Eastman, the ningen. However, draconic is replacing yinjet rapidly. Some southern ningen nations still maintain a presence in the international community, so it isnt fair tonsay they are completely reclusive.
Barentu - the language of the bantulu. However, many dialects exist as the Sun Kingdoms of Bantu are still very feudal among each other.
Khorgesh - the language of the khazahar (orc). It is very alien to humans due to the emphasis placed on body language. True khazahar oratory is in the form of action and not words.
Draconic - the language of the eridani. It is extremely hard to understand and they do not teach it to humans. The only knowledge available on the language is derived from interpreters who illegally decipher the language. If you select draconic, you cannot speak it completely and will often have to interpret it with successful rolls. The ningen that have converted entirely to the fanatical worship of the eridani are taught the language.
