Many of you who follow me on Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, or Discord (@bbbourq#4561) might already know that I based the script off of one of the races on a strategy board game a friend of mine was developing. I originally developed it in early 2003. Unfortunately, due to our profession at the time we lost contact with one another. Shortly thereafter my hard drive in which I had stored this script crashed. This was long before I truly understood the CIA triad in cyber and information technology (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability). I tried for so long to find my friend and colleague, but to no avail. When I finally gave up looking for it, I decided to work on it based solely off my memory. I remembered only a couple base shapes and the more I worked on the script, the more it morphed into the one you know and love today.
Fast forward to 19 January 2021. I finally found my friend and we had a nice, long conversation to catch up on the last 18 years. I finally broke the silence and asked about the script. Not only did he still have it, but he sent it to me like it was something he references often! What a feeling of euphoria and catharsis!
I have the script, but there is a twist: it was developed for a different race on the same game—Lortho was one of them. The script was actually for the race called Brine [bɹaɪn]. With this newly rediscovered old information, I now feel compelled to make another conlang, based on this new script. Perhaps it might be a variant of Lortho? Or better yet, perhaps I can make Lortho a daughter language to Brine. Either way, I making something out of this!
