From Lord of the Craft

Dwed is the official language of the Dwarves. In the olden days it was often used among members of the upper Dwarven caste to speak among one another until Dormin Doomforged transcribed it for the general populace to learn. It never became the primary method of communication among the common Dwarf, but it is still often used today in official documents.


In the ancient times before Aegis, there were multiple languages spoken by dwarves, but over time these languages began to merge. The final result was a mix known as Dwarvish. Dwarvish quickly gave out to Common however because it was the most universal language, and due to Dwarves at the time mainly being traders they found it more convenient than Dwarvish. After many years, the Dwarves began to flourish again and a new variant of Dwarvish known as Dwed was created, and then later on written down by Dormin Doomforged for all dwarves to learn. This language was only used in rare occasions however, and never became the normal form of communication among the dwarves. It is most frequently used during clergy events and on official documents.
