About Vojten My fictional language of Vojten is an official language in the eastern regions of Central Tarsken and Raczevo, such as the regions of Plumenberg and Južhnjen. It's also a minority language in Bukovno and Dimitrios. It's considered an endangered language within the regions it's spoken as, throughout history, the use of the language was suppressed.

Vojten descended from Old Fliessernian German, which is also still spoken. Both languages descended from Old High German. However, Vojten has tons of Slavic influence from Serbian and Czech because of occupation and random history blah blah
Sample of Vojten[view] Ve slahem tu ža an Slavskem ber szaken? Finem om an Czechen maten.

How do you beat a Slav at chess? You find them a Czech mate.
