Hi, David. I have looked, and I am happy with what I saw. So I wonder if you might be bothered to create a Urianian rune font for me. They should have an incised look, and not a pen-written look, preferably. But recently I did some home archaeology and uncovered an important find: a cursive version of the runes and some data about their derivation from the incised ones. (Hi, Brittanie, are you reading this?) I am considering having those made, too. I used to think the Urianian runes were based on Greek characters, and there are quite a few similarities to support this. But later I have come to realise that there are no chances for any contact with Greeks. But Phoenician is a possibility, so that is where I must look for an origin, I reckon. They are too unlike Germanic runes for those to be a source in my opinion. Greetings, LEF
