Iokharic Script Font

Well, I recently got the Draconimicon, and decided I'd have a go at making the Iokharic script. Any changes I should make to it?

For the emphatic asterisks, simply use the normal asterisk key.

EDIT: I've updated the font - noticed a problem with quotation marks.

Ooh! Something I just noticed...

In the picture of the dragonborn in the PHB - page 34 - the male's axe says "ice"; his shield reads "always str" - a curvy thing next to it looks like a partially completed "o", so it would probably have been "always strong"

On the cover, the sword has a "w", and near the end is an "a"; Does anyone have a larger resolution version of this?

The paladin says, in elven, "god protect the righteous", though the wizard has gibberish; in the equipment chapter opener, the shoulder pad of the dborn says "auntless", with a "d" presumably just out of view.

I narrowed down the problem to the glyphs I was using as punctuation. This is the raw data from the PHB without the homebrew punctuation marks. I'll have an update for it as soon as I find out which ones and why they don't work correctly.

No - I use OO, and I have no problems.

1) Take the font out of the .zip file and place it on the desktop.
2) Right-click and choose "install"

After that, you should be able to delete the font file, though you should probably check if it works first.

Siberys, the only thing I can say is...

Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Iokharic font works great for me, as do the Elvish and Dwarven fonts. I've been spending a lot of time searching the web for how to create fonts, just to make the Iokharic script into one! You've saved me a tremendous amount of time, energy, frustration, and not to mention money (font creation programs are pricey!)

You get yourself a :cookie: :D:D:D

DMINGW00TISAWSOME, that really depends on what operating system you're using.

Vista: Extract the font files (.ttf) and right click on them, select "Install" and hit OK on the confirmation prompt.
Pre-Vista: Extract the font files (.ttf) and drag them into your Windows\Fonts folder
Mac OS: http://www.myfonts.com/support/help_install_mac.html - instructions for all the Mac OS's.
Linux: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/installing-fonts-linux - instructions for Linux OS (using KDE in example shown)

Hope that helps.

Actually, it was easy. I use an evaluation version of fontcreator and an enlarged picture of the font. Then just copy, paste, and space each character.
