With Epiq, I will have closed out that which I hoped to accomplish by creating speakable languages. What does that mean? That means that my languages (Zhyler, Njaama, Kelenala, Kamakawi, Sathir, and this one) do everything that I personally wanted to have a language do (though a Southeast Asian-style tone language and a Finno-Ugric-style vowel harmony language are always enticing...). So now I'll spend more time building up my current languages rather than getting distracted by yet another side project.

Epiq is a language mainly inspired by the Eskimo languages, like Inuktitut and Siglit, though I was heavily, heavily influenced by Georgian. It has a unique TMA system, agreement with subjects and objects, converb suffixes, circumfixes, the letter q, cases, the whole bit. It's a lot of fun, if you ask me. What's that, you ask? Is it a lot of fun? Yes: It's a lot of fun.

Ironically, this site is pretty much complete, even though this language is relatively new, and I was supposed to be "working overtime" on X, which has next to nothing written about it. That will change in the near future. Anyway, if you're a Radiohead fan (and if you aren't, why aren't you?), you might recognize the bit of text at the bottom (though you may have to read it backwards).
