Hi DM Team?
The Language Teachers offer both Shou and HighShou. What is the intended difference in game, for someone who might only speak -one- of them?
http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/High_Shou says "It was the official language of the empire, by custom and imperial edict. It was spoken by all Shou, from all social classes and professions, including the Emperor, a commonality that helped to unify the nation"
So - In Narfell - What is the distinct use of either language, so I can pick the more appropriate one and not have either peasants, or nobles, look at me funny for speaking the 'wrong' one.
EDIT - I picked HighShou - for its apparent widespread nature - if 'Shou' is more appropriate for this use in Narfell's context I'll either learn it too, or swap
I would say that "High Shou" is more of the dialect for nobles and scholars. "Shou" is more of the local regional dialect.
