Recreation of the runic pixel font from Origin Systems' "Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny" (1988).
Ultima's runic alphabet contains a character for each A-Z letter of the latin alphabet. In addition, it has compound characters for specific letter pairings which, unfortunately, cannot be set up in a TrueType font (you'd need OpenType for these custom ligatures, I assume). As these characters (with one exception) lack an appropriate unicode point, they have been added here as follows (to unicode characters that at least visually appear close enough): "ee" 'currency sign' (U+00A4), "th" 'capital thorn' (U+00DE), "st" 'bowtie' (U+22C8), "ng" 'tifinagh letter yag' (U+2D33), "ea" 'vai syllable ta' (U+A55A).
As in the game, "space" between words uses a middle dot, and the full stop/period uses a symbol resembling a staff of aesculapius.
Only the characters present in the game's runic character set have been included.

The words that appear above your head when you talk in runescape. I made it as realistic as i could, It is about 85% accurate and being updated daily. It will even do the book trick [I].
note that you will have to add shadow when using it in yellow color for maximum realisum.
Note: remember that the proper size is 12!
