Most importantly, you should start off by making some

only recently has there been a concerted effort to give it some direction -
I think any new wikipedia in a dead language would benefit from having the
Not dead languages, but languages with a small speaking community.
While for some languages there are hundreds of thousands of articles;
for languages with much smaller communities it isn't realist to hope
to achieve such amount in a near future, so giving some focus could
help to have some completness on that focussed area.
For example, you would (I assume) want to have
articles about Anglo-Saxon
related topics, but will people also want to write about unrelated
subjects? Will the stereotypical Pokemon article be allowed?
Of course it must be allowed; if not, then it shouldn't be a wikipedia
but a different project (like wikibook).
Not focused doesn't mean forbidden.
