- Needless Klingon redesign. They're not Drow. Stop making them wear Lolth gear. Somehow the Vulcans survived unscathed, showing that, no, it wasn't a 'let's have plausibly alien aliens' thing.

I started this site in late 2013 to give the conlanging and conworlding community a specially-tailored way to showcase projects.
