Species Human/humanoid
About Kurdalas In the lore, Kurdalás is a now extinct language that was spoken by the Murenók people a long time ago. Not a lot is known about the Murenók except that they worshipped two gods: Álcator (god of the day) and Málcatór (god of the night), the first of which is good and the latter evil.

Kurdalás is an easy to learn language because the grammar has been reduced to a minimum. This does cause word order to be very important: for there are no case indicators, the position of a word in a sentence is critical.
