About Alvwe Language developed for Bloodstone

This language was spoken by a long-gone country situated in semi-temperate mountains. The society originally primarily dwarven, but came to encompass all sapient species as wealth attracted migration into the area. The dwarven elites eventually moved away and began speaking another language, but their old tongue stays alive in heavy influences' on the languages still spoken in the region.
