View Full Version : That funky alphabet in the first Blood Omen

I found the bloodscript that is supposed to contain the alphabet so you can decipher just what the tombstones say but I don't understand the aphabet. Can someone help me? :cool: :confused:

I've translated the Blood Script as far as I think is possible. Ten of the gravestones have the names of people that worked on the game, the other four appeared to be meaningless.

A full translation of the Blood Script is available on this page of my website:

near dark eden theres a gate to the east that only opens at the full moon and you only find this out if you use the bloodscript to work out the BO alphabet. its worth it because inside the gate is the lightening spell. very powerful
dont know if everyone knew or not but just incase

If you want the font you are free to go nuts making it. All you need is a font creation program. You can find one at the link below:

Be sure to post it if you do.

I dont know if you've noticed but the font creator dosent work, it says you can use sharewear, but it will only give you the options of exiting or regestering for it.

Hmm. You DO know that this "funky alphabet" is almost the same as the futhark? And even more almost the same as Tolkien's runes (not those in the LotR appendices, but those in the "Hobbit" maps?)... perhaps you might try some Tolkien fan sites?

how about re-writing an existing font. example: Arial. replace all the letters and stuff with runes.

can that be done? won`t that be easier?

I second Binky. I used a font I downloaded to create most of that page. I only modified the .jpgs afterwards to make the I's, S's and U's correct for Blood Script.

Have a search for 'futhark font' on Google or another search engine. I'm not sure exactly which font I used, but hopefully you'll find something suitable.
