About Sirti Sirti, or Turchian, is a language spoken by the Western Sirti peoples on the continent of Ester. These peoples have been known to grow large and powerful empires from their rich and fertile lands, and have always known relative wealth compared to the rest of the world.

Quite simply a language which I wanted to sound somewhat Turkic, be structured somewhat Japonic, and be relatively easy for me and others to pronounce. It erupted out of a D&D campaign I did in the past where an Empire speaking a Turkic-like language dominated everything in the world, and I wanted to flesh out that Empire's culture and language. Thus here we are.
