Yeah, I've been leveraging "Dukham" and "Pakha" pretty heavily so far.

I've been able to get creative with what we'd probably consider Galanglic. Replacing:
"How's the hand, dickhead?"
with
"How's the hand, Mary Sue?"

Which I think works pretty well.

One of the things I'm having an issue with is the use of "▮▮▮▮▮" as a response to some kind of physical incident (like a gunshot wound). "Burudak" sounds like the obvious translation, but I'm not sure a 3-syllable word is something that would become an expletive in that context. I've got it in the script like that now, but it looks weird when I read it through

All the best explietives are 4 letters and one syllable. I can't see why that would change just becaue you are Vilani. Cursing, now that's an art form of long drawn out flowwing language. Expleatives are short and to the point.

Best regards,

Ewan
