Old Keleshite is a complex ancient language of the Great Padishah Empire of Kelesh.12 Old Keleshite remains in limited use for ritual purposes.1


Old Keleshite encompasses the ancient tribal languages spoken within the Padishah Empire of Kelesh, which were more grammatically complex than modern Kelish with sounds not commonly used in other regions. Their unique and often difficult nature slowed the spread of Keleshite influence, leading merchants to create a simplified trade version that shared more in common phonologically with languages found outside of Casmaron.123
