Species Human/humanoid
About Alywienish Largely inspired by Anglo Saxon and Welsh, Alywienish is the primary language of the kingdom of Alywien (natively Alywŷen). It is also predominant in the neighboring kingdom of Lothimar, and the eastern isles of Helding. Geological separation by mountain range gave rise to the northeastern peoples' dialect, differing largely in both culture and language, though not so much as to be completely unintelligible.

Some features:
- fusional
- nom/acc
- primarily svo but very fluid
- marks past and non-past
- four nominal cases: nom, acc, gen, voc
- uses a modified gothic script
