Rac,mamoqei is one of my oldest conlangs, created for an epic fantasy world I was creating in middle and high school. I wrote a lot of stories in that world and reworked the languages extensively multiple times over the years. I won't go into too much world detail, just enough to give you context, but the basics are that the continents are called Legends and the Tipa Empire are the Elvish colonists of this world.
Rac,mamoqei means "the language of the people". It is spoken by the Taulan people of Qana Aumi, the smallest and southern-most continent and country in the Legends. Qana Aumi is among the most recent country to be colonised by the Tipa Empire and its territory is slowly shrinking as Tipan outposts pop up along its coastline.
