About Dera This is a non-orthographic language I'm working on that is spoken by the nomadic people of a tundra in a story I'm writing. They have ram-like horns on their heads and it's kind of a big deal to them. Their culture resembles something of a cross between the Mongolian empire and the Ghana empire at their respective peaks. I'll update this with more information when I have more time and as I develop it. This isn't my first language, but it's the first one I am putting out into the world to be judged, so I hope you like it!

Man always thinks about the past before he dies, as if he were frantically searching for proof that he truly lived.
