Trade Cant

The common tongue

Spoken throughout Creation, trade cant is a malleable language that has transcended its humble origins as a pidgin.

Trade cant is spoken throughout Creation, excepting only the most miserable backwaters or most xenophobic principalities. Because it’s not a divine language, trade cant has splintered into regional dialects, but no two have become mutually unintelligible.

Trade cant draws most heavily from Sahar, Rikkaus and Styl. Speakers of those languages can communicate some simple concepts to a trade cant speaker, even if neither speaks a common tongue.
