You are entertaining, brother Kou!Lao Kou wrote:We'll just have to see how it plays out. Géarthtörs is a very vague place, hidden in the mists of geography and history (which probably helped in their not getting engulfed by/absorbed into all those neighboring empires), simply because conlanging, for me, captivates more than conworlding. There are some monetary terms, some administrative terms, some names of place(s), and certainly some royalty titles/kinship terms, but, meh, there's no rush. (And the learning curve on designing currency, postage, passports, and railroad and subway maps quite simply boggles my feeble mind).
