Here's Tasratal, which I stupidly didn't write vertically, but is more natural written vertically: Unfortunately, many of my files on Naracze (formerly Czevraqis) are nixed, but the Rokugani Reformed Alphabet is written in much the same fashion. (It's for a Legend of the Five Rings campaign...y'all probably don't want to know...) Naracze proper has letter-shapes derived from Korean and a more phonologically based vowel design. :-) OTOH, the RRA (based on a future "Japanese," or Rokugani) is a kludge from hiragana. Fun to devise, though, and it looks funky from a distance, though once you get close-in the hiragana derivatives are easy to spot. Yoon Ha Lee [] It's bad luck to be superstitious.
