Temetar

Temetar is a language sketch I created for Brennan Taylor of Galileo Games for his Fantasy Worlds Patreon.

Temetar is a liturgical language used by the Temetar religion, traditionally held to be the language of the gods. It occupies the same space as Latin did in the developing Western world.

More details can be found in the above mentioned Patreon. I may create a full grammar for it some day.
