Archaic Common is a dialect of Common attested to in parts of the Codex of Flame. It is used by the Army of the Truthful for religious rhetoric.

Background Edit

Archaic Common was first encountered within the Codex of Flame. Initially not understood, it was translated by a collection of scholars and clerics with relative ease due to its similarities with common.

It has become a defining trait of Truthful culture, and is usually associated with piety and faith. While not universal or compulsory, integration of terms into vocabulary is encouraged.
