A few members of the conlanging community on FB got together and started a "passport" exchange. Each participant creates a passport in their respective language and then all of the passports are sent to one person. The recipient of the passports "stamps" each passport, then sends all of them to the ...

Indeed.
And it also has the look and feel of Tocharian/Yuezhi script as well.
How interesting. I never researched Tocharian, but now that I have I can see where you drew that conclusion.
I second the forth-sallying, and ¡Soho! even [:D]
Thank you! Forth-sallying shall continue!

As I trucked along with Lortho, I would discover certain words and their meanings. It not only helps building ...
