A vertical alphabet script for retafon Smile

It reads the following:
ŋō lōpekas dak. sēnataref qet ŋō mēses ganas leg.
I love you. This is why I say to go now.

I like this conscript. ^_^ Do you have a table for the letter and its isolated, initial, medial and final symbol?

Also, I find that with most vertical scripts, the strokes coming off the main "stem" go downwards, perhaps if you write it quickly, it would do the same thing? It's like right handed people, often have handwriting which slopes to the right, whereas left handed people slope to the left.

That's interesting, because I found it easier to write this way. I guess it could be written either way really.

I will write up a table for you.

I've never made a vertical script. I think I'll give it a try. The necessity of having different variants of each letter sounds like fun!

It is clearly inspired by Phags-Pa right? Good. Smile

Nope, was inspired more by Tibetan and Arabic scripts, as well as some of the fantastic ones I've seen here! I'm sure the Tibetan inspired bits might look quite similar to Phags-Pa though.

I'm glad you like it. it's top to bottom and then left to right. The tally marks are exactly that, a way of representing numbers!

I don't know why, but I really like the A character. It's really aesthetically pleasing.

haha, I can see why you'd think so, but beleive me, it's unintentional.

The double page is basically a diary. I'll translate for you, but give me a bit of time, lol.
