This is a clone of Elephant and castle with added punctuation and adjusted spacing. It should be fairly usable, though I'm not happy with some of the symbols ($, /, \, @). I hope it can be useful!This is a clone of Elephant and castle
This one is being published as a curiosity. I plan to revisit it in a larger scale, so I can pack more detail (maybe even entire towns!) into each glyph. A few people wanted to see this version so here it is.
This font is made to have the features of castles. (Proper balance and support not included!)
Arrow Slits - Also called "murder holes", they allowed defenders to safely repel invaders with arrows or spears.
Batters - Angled sections at the bottom of the walls. Onto these, the defenders would throw stones and other objects so that they would bounce toward invaders.
Crenellations - Cutout segments at the top which provided cover for archers.
Moat - A large ditch which helped to restrict access to the castle.
Portcullis - A mechanically-raised, reinforced gate.
