Design rules:
Faux Calligraphy.
All angles, no curves.
Horizontal lines are extremely thin.
Vertical lines are 2 bricks thick.
Include a notch at mid character height.
Vary ascender heights so that words like Ill are legible.
With caps, always try to add an extra triangle block in top left just beyond the baseline, and make room for it in the top right of all characters.
All character verticals should use angles that trail right at the baseline (if possible) or work in a right pointing triangle on the right baseline corner that pertrudes beyond the rest of the character width (and define that actual character with when a character design allows this design theme to be employed).

Reworking it so that it displays correctly...

The original had a serif in the right hand top that extended the character beyond the right hand character width borderline.  This created an issue where in Fonstruct that serif did not display correctly (that serif did not even show). 

With this version I am also adding extra notches to compensate for longer top right serifs on most of the lowercase characters.  Mulling over more notches as well, but that would be for another clone.

This will need to be kerned again.

(Now I need to save this edit and the Bold/Italic/Link floating tool is directly over the Save button.)
