Azash is one of the major languages spoken on Atrana, particularly the Kessem and Kunae.

Geographical Distribution

Originating in Atrana, particularly Astairus and its vassal nations, Azash has meanwhile also spread throughout Ivendarea due to Zerenda's Conquest. It is recognized as one of the nation's official languages and spoken by most inhabitants of the Ivendarean Mainland in everyday life. On Maan Garth the use of Azash is frowned upon, and basically obsolete since the The Revolution War. Regardless though, many Gaanar actually learn to speak and write Azash, due to the lack of use of the language though most don't speak it very well.
