Notes on this font

​I compiled this font so that Rick, Jeff and others could finally have a standard font that had all the basic Gloranthan runes, without using old or multiple fonts. The arrangement of characters is based on their position in their original font. Very few had their positions changed, this was to reduce confusion when switching from the older fonts. Don’t try to look for any logical pattern in their arrangement, there isn’t one. If you are wondering why some characters are included and others aren’t, it was based on need and simplicity.

David Scott.
