Another idea for a script for Ayeri

I've come up with another script for my conlang Ayeri
recently. I couldn't stand the Javanese-like script anymore
because everything looked far too similar and was
unnececerilly complicated in some ways. The latest idea is
a script that can be quite easily carved into stone or
wood, that's why it has some kind of runic character. I was
basically "inspired" by (read "I stole shapes from") Latin,
Cyrillic, Tamil, Tengwar(?). Because I still have no
scanner, I made a TTF font (not online yet) and wrote a PDF
document (with OOO under Linux :-)) ) of the description:
