Arcadian is a written and spoken language, originating from ancient Arcadians. It is composed of characters representing individual syllables, forming words and sentences. It is translatable to other languages, but requires much effort on the individual without a translator.

History Edit

The earliest forms of Arcadian originated several tens-of-thousands of years ago, resembling hieroglyphics. Over time, the language became simplified, its complex drawings becoming individual characters. Words have been revamped to be easier to pronounce, and with less confusion between accents and species.
