Thank you muchly! :) And, as for the 'too Tolkeinian' thing, I kind of wanted that, since the phonology is after all based vaguely after Finnish, like Quenya is. However, the morphology is very very diiferent, with lots of nice, and terrifying morphophonological rules, that would probably make it a pain to learn! :)
