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.
