RuneBlade is a font made for storytellers and adventurers to weave their tales in its sharp, runic scrawl. Inspired by Dungeons&Dragons, it's ready to find its way into fantasy adventurers and historic tales of.... well, whatever the campaign turns out to be.
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

This is the runic alphabet. The numbers only contains 0-9, så if you wanna use for example 12, then you have to spell "twelve". That is the correct way to use the numbers.
What if GS Unicode wasn't just made of pixels? What if it had a better, more appealing width/height ratio? What if it utilized the new FS inventory? And what if I wasn't way too ambitious/crazy in making this? No idea, but I'm eager to find out!
I've split this font series up by plane (though as of yet only the fonts for Plane 0 and F exist), since .ttf files have a technical limit of 65,535 glyphs.
Things that are planned but not implemented yet are listed as [TBA] (to be added).
This font (Plane 0) should also serve as the hub for most major updates (like those relating to the series as a whole).

Blocks listed [TBA] are subject to change in length and location, while those that aren't are (theoretically) stabilized à la UTC policies.
Feel free to recommend PUA assignments!
Also, it's more than likely I won't know every script well enough that there won't be any mistakes. If/when I make a mistake, please tell me and I'll do my best to fix it!
This is my imagination of how Cyrrilic and Latin letters would look like if were more "runic".
Just to test out the font contructor, and being unable to find exactly what I needed, I decided to try my hand at the younger futhark!
Capital letters are the long-stave runes, while the lowercase letters are the short-twig runes. They were generally not used simultaneously, so pick one system and stick to it.
There are many repeated glyphs, and this is because of how the system works; there are several closely-related sounds that share a rune. K/G, F/V, B/P, to name a few. (and don't get me started on the vowels)
I tried to match the latin letters you're typing to whatever rune most closely corresponds to it... from a norse point of view? As these writing systems are not a 1-1 match, it won't be 100% accurate all the time, and I'm also an amateur hobbyist from Norway, but I tried my best with what I knew.
For example, while I used ár (ᛅ/ᛆ) for E due to its usage in the [ei] diphtong (eg. in names like Einar (ᛅᛁᚾᛅᚱ)), it has really no rune on its own, and can also be written with íss, the I rune.
Compatible with most extra letters used in Scandinavian languages and Old Norse, and not really meant for writing in modern English, where nothing is consistent at all.
Update, Oct. 3rd: Fixed the lǫgr (ᛚ) rune. It is no longer mirrored. Not sure how I managed to make that glaring error, and I apologise to the thirty people who already downloaded this.
Am going to expand this font. Why not, after all? It is my best work so far.

yeah this is a thing. this font has more glyphs than any other one i've made and i'm still probably gonna add more lol
Update Apr 4 2019 2:56 PM - Shifted the 1 a single brick to the right; now the digits are monospaced yay.

Written language of the Skalmish, people within my simulation ESOSVM. These were the people initially used to colonize the universe "Rskalmwayt" wherein several stories take place, including Dheen's Folly and Trap Farmer Brer Brah. 5132 random selections were taken from Oinai stock and placed on Planet Fyromr, and their descendants became the Fyromrese. Tandem AIs then began to refine and alter remnants of Unified Oinai language into this.
Glyphs of this style can be seen on cave walls, objects, signs, records, etc. dating up to the time when I began to intervene in the workings of the Rskalmwayt simulation (ESOSVM Canonical Year 16573440000). They were always pixel art - no high-res renditions of these shapes were ever created, so there's ample room for reinterpretation.
Like most Runic languages (including Elder Futhark), these glyphs have a specific ordering associated with them. Additionally, in written Skalmish the glyphs which make up a word are always written in alphabetical order. Glyphs have no associated sound components. They were used to record gestural communications, so there's no way to speak them. Had this language been spoken, however, it probably would have used a priority-based system wherein certain glyphs were pronounced before others or preferentially stressed. Kind of like Thai language, but way more convoluted.
Another mirror font! I made it in a square style so it would mirror more neatly. This also had the consequence of giving the font a "runic" look.
Looks best at Pixel sizes, but works with any size!
The name "Mirror Mang" comes from two things: the Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band song "Mirror Man" as well as the way my friends from New Zealand say "man".
Original size: 7pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)

Runes are used phonetically, so most of the time you should shorten double-letters to single-letters ("Hello" would become "helo"). All the appropriate runes are bound to the appropriate keys, so you can type freely without worrying about which rune you're using. However, a few runes which represent diphthongs which are unused in Modern English are bound to the SHIFT-number row. They are as follows: !-th, @-eo, #-ng, $-ɶ, %-æ, ^-ia/io, &-ea, *-kk. (-st. Additionally, in Old English, there are two types of "g"s, a soft "g" (which is bound to the "g" key), as in "sage", and a hard "g" (which is bound to the ")" key), as in "saga".
Keys 1-7 also include the different Roman numerals (I, V, X, L, C, D, M), which can be combined to make up a number (from what I can tell, the Anglo-Saxons probably used Roman numerals or tally marks - most likely the former).
GS Unicode is a project I'm working on so (almost) all languages get support! With 14,564 non-spacing characters, this font is finished (as of Unicode 13.0, and as of FS's pre-July 2021 glyph inventory). Please tell me if some of the characters aren't working. I'll try to fix them as best as I can! ...And now, with a new glyph inventory comes a new age....Stay tuned for more updates.
This is a font made for myself. It is based on an alien race I created, so the letters are all substituted for their alien counterparts. Feel free to have fun with it!
