A modernized, rounded, and truncated version of Marengi. This is made to be a good chat font. It has very few kerning pairs, so it should render fine in any software.

Ascenders are only allowed to be as tall as the uppercase/numerals, while descenders are allowed to go 2px below the line. This creates a natural line spacing that is readable and not too dense. (Diacritics break this rule, of course... darn them...)

Gone are the curved termini on letters like gjty. The simpler geometry makes this design more suited to speedreading than its predecessor.

Just before publishing this, I realized it looks a lot like F77 Sodmast... but a close look should reveal plenty of differences...

MIV: 8.94

Original size: 10.5pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
