About Norse After looking over  Nordic I became dissatisfied with it. I recently became enamoured with Faroese, and after a failed attempt to grasp its complicated vowels, I instead opted to use the vowel changes to alter  Nordic to sound more distinct, because, to be honest, it was just a glorified English - Icelandic relexification with a minimized grammar. Here's hoping that this time, everything works out!
Edit
As of 1 May, 2017, this language is different.
I much simplified the grammar, much more so than I ever intended. I had a run-in with Norwegian recently, so that has a big role to play in Norse.
I hope y'all like it!
Allons-y!
