Discovered in 1923 by Stapleton McTavish the famous explorer and collector of ancient occult artifacts, while searching for one of the lost cities of Nubia. Found in a temple buried under the sand 250 miles North of Khartoum. It has, so far defied translation.

The strange text appears on a number of recently discovered papyrus, thought to be the missing pages from the dreaded Necronomicon.

Create your own blasphemous RPG handouts with this custom made TTF font file. Use in Word, Excel, Photoshop, GIMP etc.... or check out the ready made ones in The Vaults of McTavish.

Something close to my handwriting!
Well, not really.
The Loremasters of Leng still hate my scrawlings.

Looking at this hurts my sanity. Still not as evil as comic sans.

Very interesting and creatively done! I wonder, though: When writing with said language, are you using each glyph as a singular letter when you write out a word? I've seen something like that in the Artemis Fowl Books, and 'Atlantis The Lost Empire'. However, I wondered if when writing something out in this, would certain glyphs be combined to create a certain sound or term when writing? Much like Japanese, how certain characters are there as singular sounds but when saying or writing one word or name, sometimes several sounds are written and portrayed, though the actual character of what's being written or said will rarely show each section that corresponds to each singular sound...

Sorry for the questions! :forgiveme: I tend to get really curious about languages in general so I end up asking  one too many questions more often than not...

I haven't assigned any sounds or alphabet to the symbols. They're just linked the the keyboard keys so they can be typed out randomly. Sorry no secret messages........ or is there!!!!! (lol there's not) ........ or is there!!!!! ;)

Oi, oi, now you've REALLY got me curious! You know now I'm not even going to stop wondering or trying to figure it out at this point, right?

Firstly: very cool work!

Secondly: Make up your mind - you can't both sell it and demand that is it for personal use only. I would love to have the font at make something with under creative commons license. But if I pay money for it, it is mine to use as I see fit

It is not being sold to you as "your property" that you "own"; you are buying a license to use the font -- for personal purposes, as stated, in keeping with the very low price of $3.74 (as I write).

If you have "professional purposes" then you expect reimbursement, out of which which you can pay more toward a professional license. If you have some idea how much (or little) you expect to profit from your use of the font, use that figure when negotiating a fee with Stacey.

Firstly: Thanks.

Secondly: I'm afraid it doesn't work like that, sorry.

If that is the case, I need to reeducate myself on this matter. Can you provide me with source material that backs your claim that you own a product after you sell it

If you search for Intellectual Property and Copyright online there's plenty of sites that can explain it a lot better than me, but here is a good start.…

This is a font file which you install onto your computer. The symbols are mapped to the keyboard. Hit the 2 key and the yellow sign appears.
