Nakaryon's Hand is a typeface for fantasy gaming.
Nakaryon's Gifts is the primary focus of the typeface. It consists of 26 glyphs as the uppercase alphabet and 26 glyphs as the lowercase alphabet.
The lowercase glyphs are flowing, lyrical symbols that work great for blocks of magical text, summoning circles, rune inscriptions, enchantments, spells, potions, scrolls, and a host of other uses.
Nakaryon's Prose is a bold brushstroke font that compliments Gifts with a typeface that is legible but fits in among the glyphs.

$500 - Pagan Black Letter Glyphs
If we reach $500, I'll finish and release a structural, geometric, black-letter style font. It will go to all backers who pledged $10 or more.
$1000 - Weights and Densities
I'd like to take Nakaryon's Hand and update it with several weights and densities, ranging from Thin to Black, and from Ultra Condensed to Expanded. If we reach this stretch goal, these bonus fonts will go to backers who pledged $20 or more.
$2000 - Brute Force Magic!
I've got a few other font designs for magical glyphs and constructed languages kicking around. If we hit $2000, I'll polish up one or more of those and release them to everyone who pledged $20 or more. I may even gather feedback about their design and development via our forums over at Voidspiral Entertainment.
Font Usage License
The $40 pledge level gets you a commercial licence for all the fonts delivered to you, including the ones added by stretch goals. If you pledge less than $40, any fonts delivered to you will be personal use only.
Where the Money Goes
Believe it or not, creating fonts is sort of a pain in the butt. There aren't many tools for crafting typefaces, and the good ones cost money. This kickstarter is specifically designed to get me the resources needed for professional-grade font creation software. A smaller portion (much smaller, depending on whether or not we reach the stretch goals) will go towards my time and effort in creating the fonts.
Risks and challenges
There is some risk that the software that I'm aiming to use will prove to be inadequate for more advanced font features, but I've been working with the free version and trials of the professional version and I doubt that this will be the case.
Other than that, the fonts themselves are mostly design-complete. I just time to kern, adjust, and refine them, and a license to distribute them. Since I need the software to make the fonts usable, I need a little time to see the fonts typeset together, so I can assess problems.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
