Language Family Suloise

Suloise (or Suel) is a language of the Flanaess, and the native tongue of the Suel people. Suloise was the language of the ancient Suel Imperium, and is a nearly dead tongue, spoken only by a minority of sages in order to read ancient books and scrolls, and by the Scarlet Brotherhood. It can be dangerous to translate spells written in Suloise into other magical languages, as the significance of some Suel inflections has been lost.
