About Sesian Sesian is the language spoken as a lingua franca by the Sesi Peninsula at large. It is spoken by around 500,000 people in the Sesian Federation, as well as by another 50,000 bilingual expatriates all around Infernor.
It is a Northern GNI language, which means it has preserved several archaic features of Proto-GNI, such as the glottal stop, the voiceless uvular stop, and the retroflex plosives. Sesian has also retained many of the "secondary aspects" of Proto-GNI; that is, prefixes that are attached to verbs that give a verb extra meaning.
Sesian has an extensive written history, dating back to around 1000 BCE with the Harakura Tablets, the first war record of the Sesian Emperor at the time, Harakura. Perhaps the most famous written work in Sesian is Aqalya Worota's Qetanumuŝ Tümeŝa, or Walkers of Ümesha, detailing the epic journey of Ünüde, a Sesian explorer, and his magical blade gifted to him by Tular.
