A constructed language by Mark Rosenfelder.
Wede:i is an ancient language of Almea (the world Verduria is on). It's agglutinative, with no strict division into parts of speech; I particularly like the way a single Wede:i word can express quite a lot of English verbiage. It also has a logographic writing system, which I think is a territory not many conlangs venture into. I also like the base 6 number system. Finally, it fits into the history of Almea; its writing system became that of Axunashin, a distant relative of Verdurian, when the speakers of Axunashin conquered the Xengi valley; their language was also influenced phonologically and lexically by Wede:i.
Language sources: Quechua. Terrestrial agglutinating languages, for the grammar. Some lexical items are tributes to terrestrial languages as well.
