A lot of your languages seem to have a genitive case? Is that kind of your signature feature as a conlanger? Btw, I would love to see glosses.

Yeah, four of those six have the genitive. Old Gotski, being a relative of Gothic, is highly inflected. Modern Gotski is part of the Balkan Sprachbund and has merged the native into the genitive. Dnukta' and it's daughter Nukka also have it, but I'd chalk that up to lack of creativity on my part than a signature as a conlanger. While Dnukta' is one of my few a priori conlangs, I stuck to a very Indo-European case system. My other a priori languages are less IE, but also less well developed.

Edit: I can add glosses tomorrow

There are a bunch of ways it could be said depending on things, but one way I like is:

Taqu nu iuje taqu.
king NOM.1S.ICS GEN.3P.DEF.ACS king
I am king of kings.

Using the inaccessible for the first person nu and the accessible for the third person iuje indicates dominance over everyone: you may not touch me - I may touch the other kings.
Glossing Abbreviations: COMP = comparative, C = complementiser, ACS / ICS = accessible / inaccessible, GDV = gerundive, SPEC / NSPC = specific / non-specific, AG = agent, E = entity (person, animal, thing)

Well, Yitə people (the speakers of Asta, short of yitə yiya), so let's use the an expression "big man", in a verbal context instead for convenience's sake.

:con: Asta

mə-y-ənta<atr> yitə y-ənta-‘ə
1s-Ip-big<APPL> person.PL Ip-big-NOM
I am bigger than [other] big people

Īsmay

I am taking this phrase to mean "I am the supreme/most important king."

I am king of kings.
king=big=SUP=COP 1sm
krasda=ghut=lt=l ma
krasda'ghutalt'al ma
/krasdagʱutaltal ma/
[ˈkɹastagʱutaltal ˈma]

alternatively:

king=complete=SUP=COP 1sm
krasda=dur=lt=l ma
krasda'duralt'al ma
/krasdaduraltal ma/
[ˈkɹastaduɹaltal ˈma]
