About Esteran Esteres is a Ruvenic language spoken primarily in the region of Esteres, the most dominant and populous region of the Kingdom of Voers. Due to its high prestige, it serves largely as a lingua franca for the rest of the multi-lingual kingdom.
It is mutually intelligable with most other Southern Ruvenic languages, particularly Turune, which is spoken in eastern Esteres. Notable dialects include Veraosian (Veer/Taager) and Alvare.
