This font is a featural alphabet based on Mana, created by Nomadic Wiccan, which I found on this Reddit page:
The glyphs are intended to correspond to the following IPA values: [kɣ, kŋ, N, ŋ, pm, qN, tn, pv, qX, tz, a, ɣ, i, k, m, n, p, q, t, u, v, X, z]. I don't know how the extra, smaller glyph at the end got in there. I can't seem to get rid of it.
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.
Mostly for wall or border decoration (you can read letters, but probably not the numbers). Every vertical line column is a letter(plus connection to previous column)! Have fun!
For dozenal counting system, " ' " serves as "0", "0" is "10", "-" is "11", "_" is "-", ":" is division, "*" is multiplication, ";" is for roots (as the opposite of powers, "^")
My attempt at making a Unown font where all the letters are consistent in size. This is original pixel art made using a high-res reference. It's made to be a nice-looking design, not to be 100% accurate to the games. Upper case is fully kerned.
"We Dunno" is an anagram for "Unowned".
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Recommended: Use with kerning turned ON!
Runic alphabet of the Ormumi, a race of orange-skinned cyclopean humanoids in the games ESOS, Seven Candles and Trap Farmer Brer Brah among others.
Another conlang/conscript from my own works. These are the Symbols of Starborn Lightness used by Asgari.
Asgari is an artificial sun orbiting Gara, an interstellar planet. It was built to use Starborn Lightness symbols as concept-units in order to electronically convey information to the Garai people about itself. So, these symbols were originally something like status indicators. Until C.Y. 1997, they could be seen on displays in the Celestial Telemetry Room at Magong Stack One in Upper Netazeca.
However, some Garai re-used the symbols to make constructed languages and ciphers. Monsaic Sun is unique among these in that it uses only the existing symbols, without any alteration. So this font can be used to write either language.

A highly exclusive language used by people on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for private documents and old government records, and its brother language Eudastiphos Hand is used for public court documents.
Calystiphos Hand is much simpler than its brother language, despite looking much more complicated. Each glyph refers to highly specific concepts and so it is most used to record time-tested, factual information rather than stories or fiction. However, these glyphs can still be considered as runes, as each one is host to whole mysteriums of information and idiomatic knowledge which have been associated with it.
Bysoncians use a base-8 system of numeracy. 9 would thus be written as 81, 10 as 82, etc. There is no numeral 9.
Calystiphos is the Ashrian god of siroccos. The simplest way to put it is to say that he represents the "yin" of the pantheon.
A written court language used by Ashrians on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for public court documents, and its brother language Calystiphos Hand is used for private documents and old government records.
These glyphs could be considered a form of shorthand unto themselves, since each court stenographer has its own way of writing these down and its own way of abbreviating or embellishing them. Through knowledge of these glyphs, and their accompanying interpretation, one can surmise all of the important proceedings and notes.
Common methods for stenographers to alter these glyphs involve:
- Adding/removing quadrants
- Crossing out one or more elements in colored ink
- Drawing connecting lines between points within one or more quadrants
- Inscribing shorthand or marginalia within negative spaces
- Marking or coloring within the central circle
- Shading via different means (scribbling, crosshatching, or with colors)
- Rotating a quadrant upon its own axis
It's important to note that stenographers also often write (either in Royal Bysoncian, Sea Bysoncian or Voktlandish) in accompaniment with these symbols. The idea is for each stenographer to come up with a system of encoding that works for it. Eudastiphos Hand could thus be considered an amalgamate, interlingual cipher built from other Ashrian languages.
In terms of communication systems which exist on Earth, this is most readily compared to Nsibidi.
A combinatorial conlang whose symbols find many uses.
This is the written language of early Azwelke people from Planet Ashr in my game Endless Sea of Stars. The symbols are called "Moon Runes" (both pejoratively and not), and each represents a cluster of phonemes. The language is similar to Katakana Japanese in that written words are sounded out. Proper nouns cannot be written in Moon Runes, and so such nouns rely on Old Azwelkeland Script to be committed to record.
The Wolves of Euphedora still use these symbols as part of their own hidden language, here called "RZ". Since this cipher invents no new characters, these Moon Runes can be used to write RZ as well.
These symbols are also still used in modern Ashrian astrology. Their designations below reflect this fact.

A project I've been working on for some time that combines a readable writing system with a means of creating decorative streams of symbols, allowing for practical or artistic use. It is designed to be writable in the same way as English, with a couple key differences:
end of sentence within a thought:
. = SPACEBARx2
? = ?SPACEBAR
! = !SPACEBAR
end of thought:
? = ?-
! = !-
end of paragraph:
. = .
? = ?-
! = !-
numbers at the beginning of a sentence = ###-SPACEBARtext
numbers at end of sentence = textSPACEBAR-###SPACEBAR-
Use as applicable to avoid numbers and letters bleeding into each other.
For purely artistic streams of writing, Start every sentence with a capital, skip spaces, and use '-' as a period. This allows for a smooth bar of symbols without any random bits jutting out that can be used for framing or backgrounds.
From my game Trap Farmer Brer Brah.
The 21 symbols of the written language used by "Eshira" - terrestrial zooid colonies amalgamated from bacterial, viral, fungal, plant, and animal components. Eshira use this language by secreting an enzyme at the top of their rocky, stromatolite-like structures, dissolving the material to reveal white glyphs. These glyphs are extremely shallow engravings, and material is removed much slower than it is added through metabolism. They are formed so that wind, rain, UV exposure, and/or wave action naturally weather them off in a day's time.
Each glyph represents an entire concept, question, plea, or rebuke. The glyph that appears depends on the eshira's environmental conditions and treatment. Intelligent creatures on Planet Fyromr read these glyphs to determine whether the fishing is good, what the weather will be like, whether their aquacultures and aquatic farms are healthy, and so on.
An eshira only etches one glyph at a time, so these symbols are only ever meant to appear one at a time. All the eshira in a particular place tend to produce the same glyph at low tide.
- NOTES -
Use lower case to get Modern Gryzildan and UPPER CASE for Royal Gryzildan. Hold Shift while typing numerals/symbols to get the Royal ones.
These scripts do not canonically appear together on any in-universe writing. Gryzil writing is always written entirely in one script or the other. But, feel free to use this as you wish.
- DESCRIPTION -
This font contains two scripts of the Gryzil, Brer Brah's people, who are from various video games and stories of mine. Gryzil are a sapient bear-people that live on/near beaches in the continent of Skina on planet Fyromr. They have dull greenish fur, can speak, read, write and use tools, walk bipedally, and have beer fermentation chambers for stomachs. They appear in ESOS, Trap Farmer Brer Brah, and Anime Girls vs. The Cavemen.
The written language of these creatures is designed to be without subtlety. Most of the subtlety of Gryzil communication is gestural. For instance, quotations do not exist in Gryzil writing. There can be a record that someone said something, but only when a Gryzil who heard it firsthand speaks of it is there understood to be a quotation - the rest is simply hearsay.
This font is made as an attempt to anglicize the Gryzildan language - not to write it natively. Hence, it has some resemblance to Latin. But in fact these symbols all represent different gestures as well as different rasping, stamping, growling, and ingressive sounds which are unknown within Earth humans' formalized language studies. Nonetheless, you can write authentic Gryzildan with this. Read the Chalcedony-Bound Manual found in any of the games in which Gryzildan is used.

Wood-engraving script used by Ajurru people of Planet Ashr within my video game series, "Endless Sea of Stars". This script dates from 2010, when I first created the Ajurru within the simulated metaverse, ESOSVM. This is iteration 27 of the script, the one which appears in countless forms within the original ESOS story.
This script was designed for Ajurru scribes to show their skills with stone tools. Thus, it contains an immense number of curves and right angles. Most Ajurru consider this script to be overly-ornate, and so it is mostly used in a traditional context - for government records, memorials, and the like.
The "G" from this script is also the inspiration for another font, "Wall Dye".
Each letter is made of 7 possible lines (a square with a cross). Sentances form bands, as if cut into a wooden stick or pole. Feel free to use for your conlags (just don't forget to mention me)! It has both English and Russian scripts (matched by sound). Used math to create: this script used minimum amount of lines per letter while making all have equal amount in total, so letters have 5 lines and numbers have 3, punctuation has 2. You can create your own efficient script by using a combination of "5 out of 7" letter parts. Sinmilar to my "Hex Seven" script.
