DnD, Art: Forgegrinder's Runes

It can be fun when hobbies and disciplines mix - in this case: graphic design, typography and arcane dwarven metalworking.

This is result of working on some expanded content for Nevermet Press, here are some of the runes Rendersson Forgegrinder used to create his sentinels. It's a mash-up of several real world sources, with some personal touches thrown in.

Maybe, at some point in the future, I'll produce a font based on this. Are there any good freeware font editor/creators available?


  1. Looks great sir.

    I really like the binary feel of the stuff you added. Strong work.

    Fontifier ( used to be free, but it looks like they're charging now. :(


  2. Thanks! It was a bit of a challenge to visually blend old world magic with a sense of algorithm-driven technology, but I'm pretty happy with the results.

  3. @anonymous: Cool link! I'll give it a shot.

    @jonathan: Okay, you convinced me to do it (I'm such a pushover) :-P I just need some time. I've got a hundred other things that need finishing, too.

    Thanks for the comments!
