I was trying to create a world for a text-based adventure I had been making. When I needed a name for an artifact, I was having some trouble. Then, I got an idea: Why not create a language first, then create the world afterwards? And, voila. A linguist was born.
I love to write and I just discovered the fun of creating languages. I've played plenty of DnD, I've created countless worlds for my players, and love read sci-fi / fantasy fiction. I studied art in college.
