Lord of the Rings mania again. And I've got a certain interest in code-breaking, so Tolkien's Dwarfish Runes and Elvish Script fascinate me.
As far as the tengwar was concerned, it was much more difficult to figure out, because the values of the letters varied in use between the main languages of Elves (Quenya and Sindarin) and Men.
The credit for sources that helped me make this font go to Tolkien and his appendices, first of all. I had further help from the Wikipedia and 'the Complete Tolkien Companion' - a book by J. E. A. Tyler that I had the good providence to find in a bookshop during a holiday in Scotland.

Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's writings for Lord of the Rings.Note, this is a new version!!
After all the stuff I've recently been learning about writing Elvish, I finally decided to give my old Elvish font a major overhaul.
This MkII version of my Tengwar font sees:
The character-shapes tidied up a bit.
The tehtar (vowel accentuations) can now be placed under preceding
characters, as well as over the next
The additional characters for common words such as "the" have now been added, as have the plural-s loops.
The wavy-line characters have now been included for double-letters and nasal-blends.
This version includes Elvish puctuation and numbers.
The preview pic has been completely redone to act as a (hopefully comprehensive) user's guide for the use of this font. Examples are also included.To install this font, click Download and save the ZIP file. This file contains Tengwar.TTF and Tengwar-MrII.JPG - extract thes files. (The image-file is the user-guide)
Find your Fonts folder - it will probably be under Windows/Fonts - and click-drag Tengwar.TTF into this folder to install it.
