Great minds think alike you now

Thanks! There isn´t that much research involved though as the languages are my own now... When I started on this world a few years ago I used Welsh, Latin and Anglosaxon with some minor twists but now I´m devising tongues of my own, but with some borrowed phonology from different languages. So, the Cyreyna do sound quite a bit like Welsh, but it is a unique language.

Thanks, I´m glad you liked it. About descriptions though I think that´s more to personal preference. I quite like the vague descriptions of characters actually, describing Aerydd´s features as "weather-beaten" for example is about enough for me. But I guess that´s just my taste.
