Many languages are spoken on the streets of Quodeth and among the varied cultures of Thule. The known languages are split into three groups: Common, Uncommon, and Rare.

  • Common languages are those that are frequently spoken by many different cultures; of the Common languages, most speak Low Atlantean as it is the trade tongue of Thule.
  • Uncommon languages are not as frequently heard; those who know these tongues are members of dying races, or scholars and wizards.
  • Rare languages are virtually unknown by most in Thule, and only a very few know the secrets of their speech.

The ability to read and write is uncommon in Thule. Most people raised in civilized lands can at least puzzle out writings they encounter, and a good number of people born to savage or barbarian tribes eventually learn how to read and write if they spend a lot of time in and around civilization.
