Dark Speech is the secret language of evil gods, a language of such evil that demons and devils avoid speaking it, for fear it might consume them. It is extremely difficult for mortals to learn even a single word of it, but each word is full of dread power that can be used to provoke emotions, empower magic, or corrupt physical objects. Fiends find the language easier to learn than mortals do.
