Kordan

It sounds a bit sing-songy doesn't it?
August to Zamarca
  Kordan is a creole language created out of the pidgin of several other languages when a lot of species settled down together in the city of Korda over 250 years ago.   Like all languages in the world of Idyll the language is only spoken in the city of Korda, since those who travel usually have a translation stone to help them with languages that they do not understand.    

Idioms

Phrase
Will you carry his necklace?
Meaning
Are you ready to suffer the consequences of your friend's actions? Because what your friends do might rub off onto you.

Phrase
Two minds, one heart
Meaning
This is a saying that Dragons use a lot. Because they can Soulbond. It doesn't have to be romantic, but it usually is.

Phrase
Dragons fly untaught
Meaning
You are a product of both nature and nurture. Their genes give dragons wings but the dragons learn to fly by watching the adults do it. It's a saying that has come from the dragons but now, like the previous one, has become used by the other species. An ironic thing is that Dragons living in Korda rarely fly.

Phrase
Don't pay your tailor to craft you a sword./Don't ask your tailor for a sword.
Meaning
People only know what they know. People only make judgments based on their own experience/knowledge. So a sword you get by a tailor might fail you when you need it. But they know how to make good clothes and that's also needed.

Phrase
Aim too far and fall too hard.
Meaning
If you try to do too much you will fail at doing the little things.

Phrase
There's no blood or water in his eyes.
Meaning
His eyes are cold, there's no emotion in that guy. Used by some of the elves around 200 years ago about the Bugfolk or the Beastfolk, as their emotions aren't visible on their faces. They use their body language more. Now it is mostly used about cold people in general.
