About Modern Standard Ubari MS Ubari is spoken by the relatively developed Ubarians in the grand mountains of Űneru. They standardized their language because trade was becoming a prominent industry and needed an effective method of communication that was not influenced by colloquialisms and idioms although the final language had a few. As a result of this modernization, many commercial terms have been add that were not originally in the language. It has since then become the lingua franca of the Űneru mountains.

When writing, Modern Standard Ubari is used, but when speaking, Refined Ubari is used formally and Uphill and Northern are used informally.
