My current project is a color-based conlang.
The jagged shoreline of Rion is covered with caves and hiding within them are many endemic species of flora and fauna. It is no wonder that such mystical and unusual places hold a very high spiritual value among the cultures of the many shore-dwelling peoples who live there.
