The Mountains of Morpheus
Languages in Drau Mura
The people of Drau Mura speak Mura, which they also call the Common language. This is, of course, the common tongue across the region, though it is scarcely used in other parts of the world. Dwarves and elves speak their own languages. Along the coast, mostly in the cities of the Tesia, many people speak Shao-Lat, one of the most common lingua francas in the world; a foreigner visiting Drau Mura is likely to be fluent in Shao-Lat, and have a workmanlike grasp of Mura. Most half-elves are raised with an understanding of both languages, though not all Vanir texts have been yet translated into Mura. Half-elf characters do not begin automatically knowing Elvish.
Draconic is not used in daily speech, but is preserved through ancient texts and formal documents, especially those produced in Kala Anar. Likewise, among the Eastern Tribes, Oricsh is preserved among sages, scholars, and artists, as a poetic language (though very few pure-blooded orcs exist in Drau Mura). Familiarity with otherworldly languages (e.g. Abyssal) is uncommon.
