Glowan/Infernal

When we first came into contact with the local Tiefling population, our Glowan speakers were suprised. The way they pronounced their language was so much more aggressive. Initially we didn't realise what they were saying, and didn't even recognise the language. It's only after we killed half a tribe that one of the survivors told us about it in common. We took him prisoner and forced him to teach the way of pronouncing it. After a while, our translators started learning this way of pronouncing it, using their throat to make the sounds. Suddenly, communicating with the locals became much easier. In our tongue, we call the language infernal. In hindsight, we should've done more research beforehand on the pronounciation, instead of just learning it without knowing how to actually speak it. - Exploring the Southern Desert: Expedition 1, S.
