Well, proto-alphabet

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.
