This font was inspired by the works of Christophe Szpajdel (Lord of the Logos, 2010, Die Gestalten Verlag), as well as by the film trilogy and the following game titles (e.g. Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, 2014) based on Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Given the game theme, and the 48 bricks vertical limit, I thought more or less around pixel art, or pixel fonts. This is my endeavour to make a spiky blackletter in Szpajdel's black metal style that evokes the terror of Mordor at pixel level. This font has been extensively tested for best kerning, yet some issues might have remained unresolved.

My first (successful) blackletter font. This was originally inspired by demonics' Spirit, but didn't turn out much like it. There are alternates for Q, S, a, g, and s, and suggestions are welcome. Requires extra kerning...

Another favorite computer RPG: Old English font from Betrayal In Antara, (C) 1997 Sierra On-Line. Sierra Resource File Tags: "8.fon" ; "501.fon" ; "4210.fon". Kerning is from "501.fon", which appears to be only found in Betrayal In Antara. Numerals (except 3 & 8) are from "4210.fon", found in Torin's Passage, (C) 1995 Sierra On-Line. Numerals 3 & 8 are designed by Goatmeal.
