About Iovian How many years has it been? Our historians place estimates at dates ranging from eleven to thirteen thousand years ago. A dozen millennia since the pioneers established our home of Iovia. And they spoke a dozen languages too, now long forgotten.
Their many words danced like acids from a primordial soup, and gave rise to our standardized Iovian. The lexicon continues to mutate in a game of telephone between the four moons habitats, and has branched out into new languages at every system we settled.
