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 characters used to draw scroll borders are mapped to the unicode box drawing glyphs U+2501, U+2503, U+250F, U+2513, U+2550, U+2558 and U+255B. The four animation frames of the text cursor are mapped to block elements U+2591, U+2592, U+2593 and U+2588. The crown is mapped to 'white chess king' (U+2654), and what appears to be a 'staff of aesculapius' icon is mapped to the correct unicode character (U+2695).
