How should I continue with the vvukkrauur?

Everything chronologically, no skipping ahead
Evrything chronologically, but I can go back and do past stuff that I didn't do earlier

Yeah, well... I've been secretly working on these guys off and on this whole time. Maybe I should share some of the things I've done?

Such as their writing system:





As you can see, they write vertically -- top to bottom. The grid on the bottom right of the second image shows the order of letters, of which there are 19. It is important to note that five of the letter have dual forms. I've chosen to transliterate these latter like this (letters in parenthesis are short forms):

LetterPronunciation
Ebet
BB(B)Voiced Bilabial trill(bet)
PP(P)Unvoiced Bilabial trill(pet)
Mmet
ZHvision, Jaques
SHwish
Afather, fog
I(Y)flee, machine(yet, fit)
Hhot
VV(V)very(Voiced labiodental plosive)
Ffit
NGsing, think
Zzoo, says
Ssass
U(W)fool, tule(like a W without a vowel, wet)
GG(G)Uvular trill(get)
KK(K)loch(cat, kit)
Obone
Rred, beard

Those symbols above the letters in the first image are the number system. They have a base 12 system and the symbols shown there count from 1 to 26.

I have lots more info then this, but I figure this is probably a good start. Feel free to ask questions!

These guys exist completely separate from everything else, i.e. they will never have an RP involvement.

I was actually recently searching for these guys, they're great! Although quite a few of the pictures are broken.
