In this font, every letter corresponds to the same-sounded rune in the Futhark. Uppercase for the Elder, lowercase for the Younger. Extras have been assigned to runes with non-english sounds. Thurisaz is Q, eihwaz is X, inguz is C, and jera is both J and Y.

Just to test out the font contructor, I decided to try my hand at the younger futhark!
Capital letters are the long-stave runes, while the lowercase letters are the short-twig runes. They were generally not used simultaneously, so pick one system and stick to it.
There are many repeated glyphs, and this is because of how the system works; there are several closely-related sounds that share a rune. K/G, F/V, B/P, to name a few. (and don't get me started on the vowels)
I tried to match the latin letters you're typing to whatever rune most closely corresponds to it... from a norse point of view. It won't be 100% accurate all the time, but I tried my best.
Compatible with most extra letters used in Scandinavian languages and Old Norse, and absolutely not meant for writing in English. C is the K rune. Please do not use it when it sounds like S.
