Author's Note: This story contains bits of dialogue spoken in the characters' own native language. In the beginning this dialogue goes largely untranslated, subjecting the reader to the protagonist's view of being a stranger in a strange land who doesn't know what the people around him are saying. There are more in-text translations as the story progresses and the protagonist learns more of the language. However, for those who want to take an added interest in the world of the story, I have included a supplemental language guide which can be used if you want to translate the dialogue that isn't already translated for you. It isn't essential to the plot that you use it; it's just a supplement to add to the story.
