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.
Another mirror font! I made it in a square style so it would mirror more neatly. This also had the consequence of giving the font a "runic" look.
Looks best at Pixel sizes, but works with any size!
The name "Mirror Mang" comes from two things: the Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band song "Mirror Man" as well as the way my friends from New Zealand say "man".
Original size: 7pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)

Runes are used phonetically, so most of the time you should shorten double-letters to single-letters ("Hello" would become "helo"). All the appropriate runes are bound to the appropriate keys, so you can type freely without worrying about which rune you're using. However, a few runes which represent diphthongs which are unused in Modern English are bound to the SHIFT-number row. They are as follows: !-th, @-eo, #-ng, $-ɶ, %-æ, ^-ia/io, &-ea, *-kk. (-st. Additionally, in Old English, there are two types of "g"s, a soft "g" (which is bound to the "g" key), as in "sage", and a hard "g" (which is bound to the ")" key), as in "saga".
Keys 1-7 also include the different Roman numerals (I, V, X, L, C, D, M), which can be combined to make up a number (from what I can tell, the Anglo-Saxons probably used Roman numerals or tally marks - most likely the former).
GS Unicode is a project I'm working on so (almost) all languages get support! With 14,564 non-spacing characters, this font is finished (as of Unicode 11.0). Please tell me if some of the characters aren't working. I'll try to fix them as best as I can!
This is a font made for myself. It is based on an alien race I created, so the letters are all substituted for their alien counterparts. Feel free to have fun with it!

Now #11 in char count!
Covering the Unicode "Runic" letter set (from U+16a0 to U+16f0), except for the subsets "Tolkienian extensions" and "Cryptogrammic letters". Including Scandinavian runic numerals (number keys, U+0030 to U+0039). Additional runic punctuation marks, alternative glyphs, and private-use characters have been ascribed to free slots in "Latin Extended-D" (U+a7d0 to U+a7de), such as the magical ligature rune Alu or frequent (or, frankly, more aesthetic) alloglyphs for e.g. Kauna, Jeran, Sigel, Ehwaz, Mannaz, Ingwaz, Dagaz/Dæg, Stan, and others. +++ This font has been designed to meet the highest standards of runic aesthetics, glyph regularity and harmony, as well as scientific usefulness. As a specific advantage over other available non-FontStruct runic fonts, this font will always be equal in height to letters of other popular fonts at the same point size (Times New Roman, Linux Libertine), so as not to cause trouble with line height e.g. when writing a scientific paper.This is a clone
