Up to now, yes, I don't have many roots, but I didn't count them yet. :-)
And yeah, long live morphology, long live derivational synthesis!

Actually, my case system is inspired in the prepositions of Portuguese,
which I kinda like... I considered using "just" 18, but I missed adessive,
oppositive, and comitative; and I even thought about 23 cases, but noticed
that eliminating <éme> (Portuguese "estar", or "to be" in its transitory
meaning) and <éne> (Portuguese "ser", or "to be" in its more permanent
flavor) to have the stative and the essive cases made for some very awkward
21 is nice, that's 3x7... I can think of some cool concultural mnemonics
coming from that.

Yeah, I'm Brazilian, too. Who are the others?
And yes, if we live less than a few hundred kilometers away from one
another, we might very well meet in the near future... if not, there's
CONLANG and IM clients for that =)
Ah, and thanks for your kind comments!
