About Rhysterian Rhysterian is the primary language of Rhystere, a country from an old fantasy novel of mine. :) The novel has long since been abandoned but the language stuck with me and over the years I've slowly been building up the structure and trying to get a decent vocabulary together.

Rhysterian uses an abjad writing system with diacritics below the consonants to indicate the vowels (the positioning of vowel markings differs between some regions). General word order is SOV.
