Species Human/humanoid
About Serul Serul is the lingua franca of the southern region of the largest continent of Maarda, Llewildor. This language's heyday was around the time of the legendary migration, around 2500 years before the present era. This language is the mother tongue of most of my stories' main characters, and is part of the greater Llewildorian language family, which I am still hard at work on.
Sample of Serul[view] É, ì gétuv? Ò lenì kai.

To be, or not to be? That is the question.
