Faoiam was a language from the area of the Bloodstone Mountains. It was a language composed of Salistra, Drynei and Elvish. Today, a few historians and mages who are dedicated to the study of the vanished valleys in the Bloodstone Mountains are the only ones using the language.
Emigrants brought the language probably originated in present-day Celestria to the lands around the Bloodstone Mountains. Evidence for this are the similarities to the "Cellad", a sailor dialect, which is widespread in the coastal areas of Celestria and comprises different languages.
Since the Dragon Wars, the language is extinct.
