Well, proto-alphabet



And me playing with the words - this is how the P got changed (and the b)
The words on the left are http://reiassan.wikispaces.com/Language the "beyond use" gendered words.

Edited to add: I don't have numbers yet. My thoughts on numbers were:
They originated in a valley surrounded by 7 mountain peaks. Thus, their original counting was 1-7. But when they discovered base 10 math from another tribe (As they stole most things)... they needed to add 8 and 9 (and 0).

Trick is to make numbers that fit and aren't dupes of letter-shapes.
