The Thieves' Cant, also known as the Goatling mewling or pirate's Aresian, was a secret language formerly used by thieves, beggars, pirates and hustlers in Thylea.  It has evolved to be a Secret mix of dialect, jargon, and code that allows someone to hide messages in seemingly normal conversation or as random scrawls on a wall. Only another creature that knows Thieves' Cant understands such messages. It takes four times longer to convey such a Message than it does to speak the same idea plainly.

IThe majority of it is spoken however there is a set of Secret signs and symbols used to convey short, simple messages, such as whether an area is dangerous or the territory of a thieves' guild, whether loot is nearby, or whether the people in an area are easy marks or will provide a Safe House for thieves on the run.
