|In the Kingdoms
of Kalamar campaign setting, human languages were first
spoken by the six races: Brandobians, Dejy, Fhokki, Kalamarans,
Reanaarians and Svimohz. Each of these races developed their language
independently of one another. Likewise, the dwarven, elven and
hobgoblin races also developed their own languages and alphabets, and
we are proud to present all 10 of them here for your use!
Each font includes the special Merchant's Tongue (common tongue)
numerals. Brandobian, Dwarven, Fhokki, Hobgoblin, Kalamaran, Reanaarese
and Svimohzish alphabets also have additional letters as appropriate to
their language. Simply hold down the SHIFT key while striking the
appropriate number key, just as you would normally (SHIFT + 1 = ! in
English fonts, but SHIFT + 1 = the letter for the "AA" sound in
Reanaarese). Each download includes a "read me" text file explaining
which keys to use for each new letter.
Although these professionally-created fonts are designed for use on
the world of Tellene, they work easily in any fantasy campaign setting!
(September 25, 2011)
When originally published, there were separate versions for Macintosh
and Windows. The "Macintosh" version was Type 1 Postscript and
reflected our background and experience on the legacy version of
software for that platform (i.e. MacOS 9 or "classic"). Since that
time, "OS X" has supplanted this now legacy OS.
Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening
years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become
the preferred professional font format. To address these changes,
OpenType versions of the fonts have been created and the multi-platform
versions have been consolidated.
These files now contain OpenType, TrueType and Type 1 Postscript
versions encapsulated within a single .zip file (the Mac version
previously used a StuffIt file that today is no longer universally
We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
