About Szezk


Now a Xhovian language! Szezk was created by order of the early royal family as a liturgical language that was to be spoken by the population, which at the time practised the Harthuun religion, wherein the monarchy were seen as gods. Doing so improved Xhovian relations and helped distance them culturally from the Baredans - Norjihan at the time being a genocidally inclined aggressive theocracy. The lexicon of our Xhorial-speaking friends down south was imported and evolved to yield a new sound and aesthetic over time, and the grammar was tweaked by a panel of upper-class linguists until they were pleased that the language would be good enough for the requirements of the monarchy. More exciting information to come...
