The language of the desert. Aurufar is spoken all throughout the continent of Algama by the Auruk and by races that have frequent contact with them. It is also the native tongue of Blanosians and some of the people of the Raider Ports on the coast of Algama.

Aurufar is analogous to Arabic mixed with elements of Farsi and Aramaic.
