Check it out here: (PostScript) (PDF) One of the similarities is the use of optatives/subjunctives to form conditionals. Another one is bac's verbs being always intransitive -- although Ebisedian doesn't officially have that, I did toy with that idea for a while (attaching verbs to nouns in a sentence, where each verb describes the effect of an event on that particular noun, usually being different for different nouns in the sentence).

LOL... in fact, you may be pleased to know that some of the stories in the Ebisedian con-world involve inter-universe travel.
