Here is an extended version of my Atemayar Rigid Script. This script has taken me years to get to the point where it is. I do plan to complete it however I figured I would release it with the current list of characters that I have created. While I plan to complete it, it will be some time before this is achieved so please bear with me as life tends to get in the way sometimes.
I began this font August 31, 2017, and I'm releasing it 30 days short of its 2 year anniversary.
Based off the original alphabet of Atemayar Qelisayér featured on Omniglot created by Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen. Credit for all the original characters of this alphabet goes to him, as well as credit for inspiration. Some characters in this alphabet are wholly original to this font (most are not however), these are inspired wholly by the original Atemayar alphabet in one way or another.
I truly and sincerely hope you enjoy, this font is made for all to enjoy and to spread such a beautiful alphabet to be used for all languages and all writing systems. I love Atemayar more than any existing writing system, I take all my notes in it, and I yearn for Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen's alphabet to be spread around the world and used by many.
The alphabets can be categorized into groups based on the following criteria:
- Pseudo-Atemayar: shares no letters with Atemayar, but appears similar
- Semi-Pseudo-Atemayar: shares a few characters with Atemayar, but overall still looks like its base alphabet and can't be read by Atemayar users
- Modified Atemayar: Follows all/most of the same letters as Atemayar, however has added or modified letters as well
- Classic Atemayar: Original Atemayar alphabet without change
The alphabets' classifications are as follows:
Basic Latin: Classic (except X, which is a ligature of K and S)
Punctuation (all except . , : ; ? ! ... " '): Modified
More Latin: Modified
Extended Latin B: Modified
Extended Latin A: Modified
Greek & Coptic: Modified
Arabic: Modified (reversed letters)
Devanagari: Modified (line above letters)
Hebrew: Modified (reversed letters)
Bopomofo: Modified (dots above letters, ligatures)

WHAT SHOULD I MAKE NEXT?
Just in case anybody wanted a small, serifed, pixel-sharp font with personality and figure (old-style) numerals, I whipped this up... then overachieved, perhaps. It has full Latin-1 and Latin Extended-A support, extended punctuation, most Greek, and as much Cyrillic as I could justify working on. It also has some Roman numerals, many arrows, and a few other random things.
If anyone out there actually wishes to use this for setting anything with Greek or Cyrillic alphabets, please let me know if I've made any terrible errors or if more characters are desired. I know better than to trust my typographical sense for alphabets I don't use in an actual language context!
WebFont is SIL Open Font License freeware (version 1.0). If you like it for a website, you can use it as a web font. You can clone it, download it, whatever. Hopefully, if you use it as a web font, you will add a link to my site, Font-Journal (https://www.Font-Journal.com), in the credits of your website or blog (professional sites & blogs give credit for the resources used that aren't theirs), if you use it or distribute it, but that is not required.
You can edit, modify, append or do whatever you need to do with this font, including using it commercially or in creating your own art/graphic works, even a new version of the font as long as all further redistributed derivatives use a new reserved font name and remain under the same "SIL Open Font License".
This is a freeware font, it should never be sold, unless it is included as bonus freeware part of a paid collection. WebFont is FREE.
Supports a large latin character set (lots of latin), with extras like the Copyright, Trademark, Tel: symbols, currency signs and an assortment of little Dingbats. I try to use Dingbats for the UI when I design websites, so I included a few without weighing the font down too much, it still loads quickly. Loading a vector based font for UI stuff is a lot easier and quicker than loading graphic files.
Any questions, character requests? Go ahead and ask!
If you see anything that needs to be addressed, be sure to shout out at me, I'll see if I can fix stuff. - Doug Peters, Symbiotic Design
