Common Imperial

  A tongue originating from the Keratos Empire. Specifically invented to be learned easily by newly conquered nations. It was forcibly taught to the populations as per the Empire's mandatory schooling system.   Shortly after the Eternal Conquest lost its momentum and the Empire receeded all the way to its original borders, many realms decided to keep the tongue because the dwarven merchants (and their finances) employed it daily. There was also the push from many many mercenaries from various races still using it to find a job after the Conquest stopped recruiting.   It is a tongue commonly spoken in Arbeka (though not the official language), in the Feral Isles, in some Easternite Marquisates, in the Van Demon Republic (a splinter from an Imperial civil war) as well as within the Empire itself.

Writing System

25 letters, much like the greco-roman alphabets. The letter y does not exist. Accents are rare and apply on select words.

Geographical Distribution

The best part about the whole world speaking horn-face is that they can understand when you insult them.
A certain General about the spread of Common Imperial.
