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.

Please continue. I would love to see the whole thing.
