Peril in Bloodstone
Modern common tongue is the predominant language of Damara, Impiltur, and Narfell. A bastardized form of the language, mixing common and dwarvish, is the argot of Vaasa. Travelers speaking only common will be understood when visiting in Darmshall and other communities of Vaasa, but they may have a hard time understanding this odd dialect when it is spoken to them.
In remote mountain settlements such as Tomrav, orcish has become the second tongue, taught to every child. This is a simple matter of survival. More than one person from Tomrav has had to talk his way out of an orc stewing pot! Language eases communication between the races, and has led to a quieter, if not completely peaceful, coexistence between man and orc in this region.
