    Very good, Gidde! I don't know the standards and do's and don'ts for a font, but that's looking fantastic. It is also good to see some people not just drawing maps, but provide stuff, here "mapping elements", to use for them.

    Thanks, Katto! And, well, I don't really know the standards either lol, but I'm trying to learn, and I'd like to think I have a pretty good eye for type. So hopefully I can learn to do this well

    EDIT: How naive I was. Yes, there will still be kerning pairs >.<
    Lol...it's never that easy, is it?

    That's fantastic! Congratulations. And I'm also massively impressed at those embarking on this dark art.

    Heh heh, dark arts. I like that. I can picture a dark-robed wizard with all his gadgets and spell components trying to conjure up the perfect font over his cauldron.

    Good job. They look nice. Now, the bad news: when(if), you add your bold version, you will have to update the original since there is already some very close overlap in the letter spacing. Anyway, congrats! I will pick it up "eventually"(yea, I have way to many of those lying around in my brain....)

    I realised too late that 'kerning' is a mystical process that requires the blood of an innocent, the sweat of thousands and the tears of a fair maiden. At that point I realised that I had started down a dark path - but that the ends would be worth the sacrifices the rite required of me. Now when I see Papyrus something dark stirs and the voices tell me what I must do to those who perpetrate such sins....
