Version 1.1: All 144 glyphs accounted for, changed to monospaced.
A style of writing based on Orcish architecture, culture, and mythology. The main design rule was "no diagonals".
The name is inspired by Beogh, god of orcs in the Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup video game.

Tribal doodle thing. Still in its experimental phase. It's named for Abraxas, a Tromp from the PC game "Commander Blood". (As it turns out, the same name has many historical and mythological uses.)
A font which evokes a feeling of roving warbands. It looks a bit Wild West, too! It started as one of those blackletter designs with diamond-shaped terminals, but then I experimented on it and now we have this.
Another attempt at alien Latin. It's made to have an organic, almost writhing look, but also to be easily written with a brush or spray paint.
Runic alphabet of the Ormumi, a race of orange-skinned cyclopean humanoids in the games ESOS, Seven Candles and Trap Farmer Brer Brah among others.
A highly exclusive language used by people on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for private documents and old government records, and its brother language Eudastiphos Hand is used for public court documents.
Calystiphos Hand is much simpler than its brother language, despite looking much more complicated. Each glyph refers to highly specific concepts and so it is most used to record time-tested, factual information rather than stories or fiction. However, these glyphs can still be considered as runes, as each one is host to whole mysteriums of information and idiomatic knowledge which have been associated with it.
Bysoncians use a base-8 system of numeracy. 9 would thus be written as 81, 10 as 82, etc. There is no numeral 9.
Calystiphos is the Ashrian god of siroccos. The simplest way to put it is to say that he represents the "yin" of the pantheon.
A combinatorial conlang whose symbols find many uses.
This is the written language of early Azwelke people from Planet Ashr in my game Endless Sea of Stars. The symbols are called "Moon Runes" (both pejoratively and not), and each represents a cluster of phonemes. The language is similar to Katakana Japanese in that written words are sounded out. Proper nouns cannot be written in Moon Runes, and so such nouns rely on Old Azwelkeland Script to be committed to record.
The Wolves of Euphedora still use these symbols as part of their own hidden language, here called "RZ". Since this cipher invents no new characters, these Moon Runes can be used to write RZ as well.
These symbols are also still used in modern Ashrian astrology. Their designations below reflect this fact.

Font used for header text in "Ecologica", a sim game I developed in 2013.

Wood-engraving script used by Ajurru people of Planet Ashr within my video game series, "Endless Sea of Stars". This script dates from 2010, when I first created the Ajurru within the simulated metaverse, ESOSVM. This is iteration 27 of the script, the one which appears in countless forms within the original ESOS story.
This script was designed for Ajurru scribes to show their skills with stone tools. Thus, it contains an immense number of curves and right angles. Most Ajurru consider this script to be overly-ornate, and so it is mostly used in a traditional context - for government records, memorials, and the like.
The "G" from this script is also the inspiration for another font, "Wall Dye".
A design built on two lines which cross each other. Makes me think of an ornate wood carving script.
Creating glyphs which fit the style at this grid size is a challenge. So, this is a work in progress.
