From Dwarves! - Minecraft Roleplaying Server


Since the first contact with the Grol, the Dwarves of Bormar have tried to establish a lexicon of words, phrases and such, so that they might come to fully understand one another one day. This has turned out to be an incredibly difficult ordeal due to most Grol living in central Bormar not being fluent in the language and the geographical remoteness of Grol societies, their mistrust to strangers and their general privacy. However, over the generations, scholars and traders have slowly established a short list of the language of the Grol.
