Gothica Medieval was inspired by a font called Horde.  That said, although the style is from Horde, this font is designed differently.

... and the Q, also S and s aren't bad either! An instant fav :)

I keep looking at it and wondering whether the V & U and the v & u bottom lobe angle profiles should be flipped.  (?)  Of course, the little u would retain it's terminal (or is that a spur, or a tail?).

Basic Latin DONE (except for curly brackets). Added a few Currency Symbols, the TEL, SM & TM marks.  I added a Copyright symbol and added the Registered Trademark, too.  It has been kerned.  I think flipping the Vees and yoUs is a good idea.  Tell me if I'm wrong. 

It turns out that there is already a few Gothicas, so I will have to rename it to something like Gothica Medieval, Gothica Old Style, or Gothica DP, unless I get a better suggestion.

Changing this to a Public Domain Dedication Freeware font.  Happy Easter!

Btw, Q, S & s aren't really mine.  They are carbon copies.  But there were lots of characters I liked in Horde (by Typeting) and lots I didn't like and wanted to change, so I did.  Mostly the letters that had tails below the baseline, the tails weren't in the style of the rest of the font.  Certain diagonals were different widths.  The a had no cap on its upper terminal.  The #, $, (, ) & 0 (and others) were designed outside the style of the rest of the font.  So that's why I made this different version, keeping the good parts, updating it, and revamping the flaws.
