A Note From The Author:
Totally based on the LOTR translations of the Runes.
Tolkien did take some liberties in his books. (P and J for example)
CAPS is the standard, LowerCase are the Combos
Probably should switch that, let me know if that is what you want.
Upper and Lower case seems redundant so I have incorporated the letter combos into the lowercase alphabet.
It would be nice if this became a standard.
Numbers came from Stargate Universe and seemed appropriate and easy.
Other Lowercase Features:
+ is a Double Letter Indicator - Cutting is a lot of work
a is the 'Oak' A
b is the 'Tolkien' B
c is CH
d is ND
e is EA
f is EE
h is SH
k is CK
n is NG/ING
o is OO
t is TH
s is ST
By request. The name is Dwarvish for "Matchshattered" ("Equalshattered"), an artifact iron axe carried by Mosus in Kruggsmash's YouTube videos about Dwarf Fortress.
Numeral digits are to be seperated by spaces.
Just a variation of an existing design. Spacing values were changed to break the chains, and "space" & "no-break space" were made blank.This is a clone of Might Chain
Some kind of great big ol' chain.
In retrospect, I think it looks like a jewelry chain from a dwarven civilization. Perhaps the hypothetical jeweler cut and ground the stones in an imitation of some dwarven font!
When glyphs are used in isolation, they somewhat resemble carved signets or seals. Increasing the letter spacing allows you to create a variation of the design. (This is something that must be done in-software since the font will render as monospaced by default.)
12SEP2018: Added lowercase... the low resolution combined with the design method make it very difficult to render distinctive lowercase versions of every letter, but I'll keep working on it. There's a lot of similarity between pairs like S/5, Z/2, etc., so this font is most effectively used in forms of writing wherein context suffices to inform the reader as to the identity of each glyph (lists, prose, and technical writings). If you want to use this in a password system or something, I recommend using one case's glyphs only.
1. Negative spaces will be areas of 0.5 bricks' effective length or width.
2. Negative spaces may exceed the 0.5 measurement only by increments of 0.5 and in only one dimension at a time.
3. Glyphs will fill their framed canvasses to the greatest extent possible while adhering to the other rules.
I adapted the Khuzdûl alphabet to the Basic Latim keyboard, but because of the different rune (some of the same sound), some could not be placed correctly. so here are the adaptations c = ch, q = kw, x = ow, A = á (aa),B = mb, C = sh, D = dh, E = é (ee), F = gw, G = gh, H = -h, J = ghw, K = kh, L = (*?), M = nw, O = ó (oo), P = ps, Q = khw, T = th, U = û, W = hw, X = ks, Y = hy, Z = zh, 1 = e, 2 = u, 3 = ö, 4 = ŋ (velar nasal), 5 = ts, 6 = g, 7 = gh, 8 = nd, 9 = ng. this link should help you http://www.google.com.br/imgres?um=1&sa=N&hl=pt-BR&biw=1440&bih=762&tbm=isch&tbnid=ySQenc2rYXZ6ZM:&imgrefurl=http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Khuzdul&docid=f8zx68pZG3deCM&imgurl=http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070526150260/lotr/images/7/7f/Khuzdul.gif&w=342&h=292&ei=8-77Ufa0FIXK9gTg44GQDQ&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:2,s:0,i:85&iact=rc&page=1&tbnh=180&tbnw=225&start=0&ndsp=25&tx=147&ty=108#imgdii=ySQenc2rYXZ6ZM%3A%3BAB8egcSoRx2cKM%3BySQenc2rYXZ6ZM%3A
A font influenced by various fantasy scripts, particularly dwarven, and also slightly reminiscent of Aramaic text. Created for my D&D campaign.
