    Features

    Daemonica: The language of demons, the language that the oldest of them used to create the world. At that time, simply whispering its words they caused mountains to grow and stars to shine. Rivers began to flow and trees were wrapped with leaves. Birds were given their voice and beasts their claws. Sun exploded into eternal night; it lit up the earth for the first time and slowly set off on its journey across the sky. All the languages people ever talked in history had originated from the Daemonica itself. Maybe we were to rule the world with the help of it; the language may have been our heritage, a sign of our creation. Whatever it was, the Daemonica is dead today for us.

    Only fragments of words have prevailed. Hunters have passed on these fragments of the language to each other and with their help they can get to the borderland between the realms of life and death and communicate with the souls of the murdered.
