Low Elven is a language
of trade and commerce that elves taught other races in order to conduct
business. Non-elf player characters and NPCs that speak Elven will only
know some variety of Low Elven (this font).
Elven grammar centers on
the subject. The gender of the subject and its plurality are reflected
in almost every word of a sentence. Elven uses many vowels, in fact,
most elven words contain at least three vowels. Elven words frequently
contain double and even triple vowel combinations. The average elven
word is three syllables long, and that is before any gender or
plurality is added!
Low Elven uses runes that
were first drawn long ago, before the appearance of humans on Tellene.
(High Elven is so intricate that it takes the average elf 50 years of
studying to master it.)

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 almost completed replaced that user base.
Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening
years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become
the preferred font format. To address these changes, an
OpenType version of the font has been created and the multi-platform
version has been consolidated.
This file now contains 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.
