Vulborish is spoken all around the Drylands, which is the area of the nation of Vulborim. As it shares the same root language as Kuprian these two languages are similar enough that if you know one of them you should be able to comprehend the other one, but they're different enough to result in some rather awkward translation issues. The best example of an issue like this is the Post-Plague Trade Agreement.

Usage Outside Vulborim

Vulborish is quite possibly the language that's the least used outside its geographical home. It might be heard in some situations in Kupria, but it's practically never heard anywhere else. However, the same can be said about other languages in Vulborim. You might encounter some Kuprian while in the nation, but there's hardly any other languages ever spoken.
