this is a PDF and a guide to the language. This is a language and yes these symbols mean something. I created it because I was not able to find a free font like this online. This language comes from the R’lyehian Alphabet. The goal was to design an alphabet that matched H.P. Lovecraft’s description of the ancient language. To do that it needed
1. To hang down from “horizontal word lines”
2. To be hieroglyphic in nature
3. Not be like Naacal (i.e. ancient Mayan) \
4. Not be like the hieroglyphics of Easter Island (Rongorongo)
The next most obvious hieroglyphics after that would be Egyptian, so putting all that together translated to something that combined a Devanagari style with symbols that could have eventually led to the Egyptian hieroglyphics.
THE LOWERCASE AND UPPERCASE
This is a set of letters for Upper Case versions of each letter. The idea is that the language and concepts of the language are non-Euclidean and non-linear, so there is nothing stopping someone from writing it to change directions or change the orientation of the letters. Long story short, these are either backward, at right angles, or upside-down, and in some cases tweaked so they seem fairly different from the basic alphabet. Using capital letters gives variety to the writing, but also makes it harder to read.
(I just inverted most of the letters and the lower case and uppercase are switched so just beware that if you type without caps lock you will be typing in uppercase)
If you have any questions consult the PDF and if it's not in the PDF then I don't know I will be adding an image of what symbols correspond to the keys on the keyboard (if there's already an image then ignore the last bit)
I'm not Uber Goober games btw I have no connection to them and they are responsible for the language.
Inspired by a Blackletter font in which I saw Art Deco qualities. The name comes from Norse/Viking mythology. It's great for headlines/titles and works nicely as majuscles for slab sans serif fonts.
No DL for this particular design but the initial font design will be tidied (has Latin & MoreLatin only) and made available before the end of next week.
