Continuing my experimentation with diagonals. My goal was to make a font without vertical stems. English has 13 capital letters with vertical stems (B,D,E,F,H,I,K,L,M,N,P,R&T). Diagonia has 4 (I,M,T&W).
Chain stands for chain mail. I play RPGs and chain is a kind of armor. Heavy means that it is tightly interwoven.This is a clone
The Roman alphabet has far too many letters. 9 letters can be represented by combinations of others. This font resoves that problem. Letters replaced: FJKQVWXYZ, Letters used to replace them: BCDEGHIPSU, Other Letters: ALMNORT. Regarding V and B, instead of replacing V with BH, I could replace B with PV (which would be better).
Now that I have the set of letters down to 17, they can be stored in Hexadecimal. So the final alphabet is ABCDE.GHI..LMNOP.RSTU..... Punctuation - 13 symbols: ,-`':()<>!?|. 2 slots left over for other stuff. The space has stuff in it. Do I want that?
There are 32 characters - 17 letters and 12 symbols, a space and two empty slots.
