Avern    Avern

Avern is a transformed English alphabet invented by Zach Haffey and used by a society of warlocks whose souls and culture (including their language) have been interwoven with the alien, demonic energies that give them their power. The language itself has traces of Latin and Old English but has been nearly overrun by the extradimensional demonic tongue.

Avern has several, extremely difficult sub-dialects and conditional pronunciations depending on the rank of the speaker versus the spoken to.

Notable features

  • Written horizontally, left to right.
  • The consonant clusters ch, sh and th are pronounced the same as in English but the letter "s" is not used. The infused, demonic powers always vibrate the Averns' vocal chords into saying "z" instead...
  • Capitals: Same letter written larger. Capitals are used at the beginnings of paragraphs and proper names.
