I picked the retroflex because I like it (one of the joys of artlanging). My
L1 not withstanding, retroflex feels "normal" .

This is also the reason why my name is misspelleng *Hendrik so often.
As Regimonti seems to have a retroflex /r/ (any particular reason?), the
epenthetic plosive would probably be [d`], and the /n/ might even be
retroflex by regressive assimilation. So maybe /nr`/ > [n`d`r`]?
