Very nice [:D] It sounds very archaic IE, which is awesome. I don't see enough of that in conlangs. I hope you continue this!
I'm really glad you like it! This is first "serious" diachronic conlang I've done so I wasn't sure how it would turn out.

Have you posted pronouns, relative, interrogative, personal, demonstrative, indefinite, etc.? I know they're not the most exciting part of speech, and I've been putting them off for last myself, but they're important.

Do the numbers 1, 2, and 3 decline or are they all indeclinable?

How did you derive the 3rd person pronouns?

They all decline. Numbers that end in a are declined as a-stem 1st declension nouns, those ending in i or u are i/u-stem 2nd declension, and those ending in consonants are consonant stem 3rd declension.

I used the pronoun *so > s- + nominal endings to get the pronouns:

s-as = masculine getting it's ending from the 1st declension as-stem
s-i = feminine getting its ending from the 2nd declension i-stem
tad-am = neuter getting its ending from the 1st declension am-stem
