Celestial is the language of the Gods and other spirits, and unlike the other languages of Ayen, it is not primarily conveyed through vocalization of sounds. Rather, the concepts of Celestial are conveyed in the medium of pure ideas. Depending on the perspective of the listener, these ideas may seem to be artificed into physical things for a few moments in the process of communication, or they seem to be conveyed by mere thought. The distinction is seldom significant.
Because of this unique mode of communication, the members of the Six Races are rarely able to converse with Gods in their native tongue, often falling back upon the race’s own language for convenience. The Races are able to understand Celestial, though the degree of nuance in the language limits the ability of such small beings to grasp the full meaning of these messages. Advanced illusionists can acquire the ability to “speak” Celestial in a limited fashion, but as they are limited to the range of thoughts the world has presented to them, true fluency is simply impossible.
The names of Gods and spirits are presented in a limited translation of their Celestial representation within this knowledgebase. To accurately render the full name of even the lowest spirit would require several pages of description, and so we present only the abridged version.
