Okay, so I was looking over the Axunašin sound changes from Proto-Eastern, and there's something odd missing. With all the changes, the word *Endānor only seems to go as far as **Endamu. Is there something missing, or have I just not done all the changes correctly?

You applied them correctly; the Axunemi did not. :) It's a little unnatural to have everything strictly follow the rules. Most probably we have some assimilation from the following -m.

Ah. That makes more sense, really. Oops.
By the way, strictly off-topic, do you know if there was much difference in the pantheons of the other Ezičimi nations compared to the Axunaic one? Would Meša still be on top, for example?

It's a bit messy. In the Age of Many Kings (pre-Axunai), the chief god of a city starts out as the one in the patron god table— e.g. that of Yaujinan would be Meidimexi. But if one city was dominated by another, there would be both external pressure and internal motivation to make its patron god #1. If the governing city lost control, this status would fade, depending on how long the relationship had lasted.

So, going up the Xengi, you'd go from Meša (in the delta) to Inbamu (thanks to Šinji) to Moun (from Neiral).

A less central region like Ran was not quite so confident in its patron gods, who would probably take second place to Meša or Inbamu.
