Barzulo is the written and spoken language of the Shield Dwarves. It is the most common dwarven language spoken by non-dwarves in the Eastern Lands.

Barzulo shares many similarities with thier cousins, the Kazul. Grammar structures are the same but their language has been subtly influenced by their contact with other races and so some words have been changed.
