@starwed No, the quotation does not say specifically that it was not invented. It says that 1) the wizards discovered this language, 2) that it weren't the wizards who invented it. Whether it was invented (if at all) by someone else or some other group is left open.

Nice answer indeed, thanks. I've thought of this too, in fact (well, not exactly this, with Erdős and so on, but the "no one" bit.) However, I'm looking for an official answer, or a reliable confirmation of the lack of official answer ("I've read all the 3.5 books and there's no answer to that.) :)

Could the person who downvoted this please provide a reason? Why is this not a valid, interesting question? -.- (I know they won't.)

@okeefe Maybe, though the general feel and background of the / a generic DnD setting doesn't really seem to allow much room for stuff sans creator, if any at all, imo.

@Dakeyras: True. What I'm interested in here is the answer from and for this core setting, though. :)

comment Inventor of the Universal Arcane Language?
@Dakeyras It's not really setting-specific: it's a quote from the core D&D3.5 PHB that presents, afaik, a generic D&D setting that is based on, but is not exactly matching Greyhawk(?).

comment How does time work in 3.5/Pathfinder?
I'm not sure about the PHB not having anything against an arcane caster going back to sleep and the refreshing right after using up all his spells. Table 3-18: The Wizard (PHB3.5 p.55) says "Spells per Day", the Arcane Spellcasting section (PHB3.5, p.178) keeps talking about daily memorization and spells per day again (and there's the "Recent Casting Limit / Rest Interruptions" section which says that spells cast during the last 8 hours before memorization count against the daily memorization limit for the coming day.) I might be misinterpreting the RAW, but... :)
