February 29, 2012 - Alaran Page Revamp

So yesterday I got bored and did a complete overhaul of our Alaran Language page. It's something I have been wanting to do for a while now, as I was not happy with how sloppy it looked. I also added some updated information to it. Hopefully it is now far easier to understand and navigate!

Also, I have been debating on making a Quick Guide for learning Alaran, similiar to my Quick T5 Mercenary guide. Let us know if this is something you guys would use!
