Auran 5e DnD language

Auran is the language spoken by those of the Elemental Plane of Air. The speech is also named Old Alzhedo, and it is a dialect that is part of the primordial language family. It is one of the four other elemental languages. The others are Aquan, spoken on the Elemental Plane of Water; Ignan, the language related to fire; and Terran, said on the elemental Plane of Earth.

What does Auran sound like

The Auran language sounds relaxed and resembles slow breathing or exhaling of air. It is a dialect of the primordial tongue. It is a very soft language that does not make loud sounds, even when said in anger. 

Since it is part of the primordial language family, others who speak this dialect can understand Old Alzhedo. So, Ignan, Aquan, and Terran speakers can easily understand it. 

Who speaks Auran in 5e?

There are quite some creatures who speak the wind language of Auran. However, I will not discuss the speakers of Alzhedo and Midani, which are derived from it. 

  1. Air Genasi

The Air Genasi are a subrace of the genasi. They are also called wind soul genasi due to their power over the element of air. This is one of the languages they speak; they can also learn common and other languages since they are intelligent. 

2. Smoke Drakes

Smoke drakes, also known as Fumarandi, also speak the wind language. Like fire snakes, they collect gemstones and can also talk Ignan, the elemental fire language. Next to those two fundamental languages, they are also proficient in Draconic. Smoke Drakes are known to never raise their voice and always whisper, even when they are furious.

3. Kenku – Kind of

The kenku can understand this tongue quite nicely. However, they are not able to speak it fluently. A Kenku can only speak Auran in 5e by using mimicry. They can also talk common through mimicry. 

Written Auran in DnD

This wind language is written in the Dwarvish script. That means it has simple straight lines and is often written on materials like stone and metal. This material makes texts written in Auran very long-lasting, and they will be readable even centuries after it has been untouched.
