Aelyrian Terms

A list of terms unique to Aelyria.



The many and varied cultures making up the people of Aelyria are heterogeneous in nature. Typically the indigenous society present dominates far more than any Imperialized or centralized traditions. However, certain words descended from the Aelyrian Empire's first race, the Ancient Aelyrians, have carried over and become canonized into the Common Tongue, the primary language used between all citizens in the Empire.
