The Language is that of Mordor… which we will utter here!
The Black Speech was devised by Sauron in the Dark Years to the language of all those that served him. There are many forms of this dark tongue. The inscription on the One Ring was in the ancient Black Speech as Sauron originally created it. However, after the first over-throw of Sauron in the Second Age, the Black Speech was forgotten in it’s most ancient form by all save the Nazgûl. In the Third Age as the Dark Lord rose once more in power, it was used by the higher ranking captains and lieutenants of Barad-dûr. while upon the Plain of Gorgoroth a baser version often called Orkish, was used by the Black Uruks and Soldier Orcs of Mordor.
The version of the Black Speech the we host here in Mordor is a remnant of the ancient tongue that survived the fall of Sauron. It was devised by Scatha and is called the Shadowlandian Black Speech. Scatha created lessons for learning this archaic language so the one can learn to read, write and speak it. The pages have not been updated in at least five years and needs a a reboot!
