Edge of Darkness: The Broken Circle
Languages in italics are major lost or dead languages. Once spoken in an Empire or by a race that no longer exists. It is not possible to start the game with knowledge of these languages. But possible they could be learned during play if enough effort is put into it. In a world as old and large as Ondoron, there are many more languages that have come and gone, but those not listed probably are highly unlikely to play even a minor role in the campaign.
