Not sure where I stand on the faithfulness scale, though it's certainly true that Kash (and its culture) are the most developed of my 3. It's always bothered me (from a realist/theoretical POV) that so far at least my Planet Cindu has only three language families for its 3 distinct sentient/loquent species (one, Prevli, a teeny minority lg. of people of uncertain origin). I can see that the Kash, being telepaths, might all 600million speak langs. belonging to a single family, but I'm beginning to think that the Gwr (400million) are going to have to have several, no doubt due to very ancient splits.
