Here’s a corrected version of the Gsteemsobet Key. I changed the name of the character that looks like a lowercase Alpha from “Ack” to “Alf”, in order to better reflect its relation to other existing scripts; and I also corrected a spelling error. Probably no one noticed, but I’d originally misspelt the Gsteemsovian name of Sozz as “Sazz,” which would have rhymed with “Jazz.” Embarrassing.
I will shortly be posting an addendum on Gsteemsovian numerics. They are in base 60 decimal/50 duodecimal, but unlike the old Cuneiform system, they are written in a manner founded on base twelve rather than on base ten. It becomes possible to write dates and times in half as many digits, which makes for extreme visual compactness.
