Decided to start up my papercraft gaming section today with a collection of old (practically antique) Paperformers designs. These figures are well below my current art and design standards, but haven’t yet been replaced with new figures. As new models get put up, these will start coming down.
Update: 1 October: I added a whole bunch of second-series Paperformers today, also on the Papercraft Gaming page. These are of superior quality than the first batch, but still not up to my current standards. Still, enjoy them, and feel free to make suggestions on how to proceed from here on out with the Papercraft section!
Like Tuesday, today is a Star Trek-themed update, really to help clean up the Science-Fiction fonts page of the site. I should take this opportunity to thank a lot of amazing people (Mike Okuda, Rick Sternbach, Doug Drexler, and many others) who have worked on Star Trek over the years and offered me great assistance.
Okuda is a tall and thin typeface based on the computer lettering (the LCARS system) created by Mike Okuda for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, Euro. Includes bold, italic, and bold-italic faces.
Schnaubelt is heavily based on the typeface of the drawing stencil used on the Star Trek: Techncial Manual. It is a simple, clean “small-caps” engineering face commonly found on blueprints. This font includes full alphanumerics, extended punctuation, euro. Available in regular, bold italic, and bold-italic weights.
Trek Arrowheads is a symbol font based on the numerous Federation Arrowheads that show up in the various incarnations of the Star Trek franchise. Includes designs ranging from the original series through Star Trek: Nemesis.
Anyone who knows me knows that Star Trek, over the years, has played a profound role and influence in my tastes and entertainment. Today sees a couple of long overdue updates to my Trek-related fonts, as well as a new font based on the computers within the newest JJ Abrams version of the franchise.
PCap Terminal is Pixel Saga’s version of some of the computer text seen in the JJ Abrams Star Trek motion picture series. This is an LCD-style face with exaggerated lower-case letters (not shown in the movies). This font includes full alphanumerics, extended punctuation, euro. Available in regular, bold italic, and bold-italic weights.
Montalban is a bold display face based heavily on the title and end-credits from the legendary Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan movie. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes bold, italic, and bold-italic, and condensed versions of all of the above.
Tellarite is an unusual dot-based (quasi-braille looking) face based on the Tellarite language glyphs found in the Star Trek: Enterprise television series from Paramount/CBS Pictures. Includes all canon characters mapped to their appropriate English equivalents.
Note: Starting next week, on the 23rd, site updates (for fonts, at least) will start taking place on Tuesdays and Thursdays as I start to focus on getting the rest of my backlog finished.
Old Dethek is based on the fantasy dwarven runes found in TSR’s Forgotten Realms (Second Edition). It is a bold, simple set of runes designed to invoke an old Northern feel. Includes all official glyphs.
Note, this script is now de-canonized and replaced with Dethek.
Tuigan is based on the common “human” language presented in Wizards of the Coast’s Forgotten Realms Hordelands (second edition) designed to be reminiscent of early Monogolian languages. Includes all canon glyphs. Includes regular, bold, italic, and bold-italic weights.
Mage Script is a thin, almost-spidery fantasy face based heavily off of the ‘mage’s language’ from Bethesda Softwork’s Elder Scrolls series of games. Includes all canon characters. Includes bold, italic, and bold-italic weights.
Today’s updates are, of course, gaming-related, this time returning to the Dungeons and Dragons world with a new font based on the 4th edition text material, and updates to a couple of English-Readable fonts based on Dwarven runes.
Vecna is based heavily on the title logos for WotC’s fourth edition Dungeon and Dragons role-playing game line. This face is meant to evoke a medieval/renaissance look, with some old English flare. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes regular bold, italic, and bold-italic faces.
AngloDavek is an English-readable version of the fantasy ‘Davek runes’ script. The font is heavily based on classic “Futhark” style runes and meant to envoke a dwarvish feel. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes regular bold, italic, and bold-italic faces.
Anglorunic is an English-readable version of the classic Olde Dethek’ runes set. The font is a thick, primitive, and blocky face designed to resemble primitive Northern or Dwarven runes. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro.
Today’s update is hammering out more ‘complete’ version of my two Gundam fonts based on the Dynasty Warriors franchise. This basically makes sure that there’s a bold version of each font and everything’s updated to the newest standards, etc…
Amuro is an angular, beveled face based heavily on the heading logos from Bandai’s Dynasty Warriors: Gundam video game. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes bold, italic, bold-italic, and condensed versions of the above.
Bidan is an angular, down-sloped face heavily based on the heading logos from Bandai’s “Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2” video game. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes bold, italic, and bold-italic versions.
Lastly, I also removed Destronic Graffiti from the fonts page since I had taken over and updated Jim Sorenson’s version (on the Alien Writing page) it was too much of a duplication of effort. Anyone that had used the old version can simply upgrade to the new one without much hassle.
Starburst Pips is a classic science-fiction themed dice font based on the dice distributed for Space Hack, or classic Traveller. The font includes pipped-dice with Starbursts, computer-tech numerical dice for d6s and d10s, Fate Dice, and a number of special symbols to round out the collection.
Elminster is a English-readable ‘ancient rune’ script based on the title logo of TSR’s classic Forgotten Realms setting for their second-edition Dungeons and Dragons game. This face Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, and euro.
Sharp Avienne is a thick, quasi-stencil typeface with ‘claw-like’ flourishes on many of the capital letters. This face is based on the title logo of the “Birds of Prey” comic series from DC comics. It includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, Euro. Includes regular, italic, condensed, and condensed italic versions.
Today’s updates are going to be minor, concerned primarily with getting a few fonts off that ugly ‘bulk’ list and into their proper categories.
Erte is a thick, smooth, and rounded art-deco typeface based on classic marquees and advertising lettering from the ‘age of pulp’. Includes upper and lowercase letters, extended characters, Euro. Includes bold, italic, and bold-italic weights.
Clark is a smooth, bold, non-angular, largely uniform art-deco typeface designed to invoke a bit of a science-fiction feel. Includes full alphabet, extended character set, euro. Includes bold, italic, bold-italic, and hollow weights in all of the above.
Videopac is a stylized stencil-based typeface given upper-caps and a slight 1970s-era flare. The face is based on the Odyssey 2’s “videopac” cartridge titles, such as KC Munchkin. Includes full alphanumerics, extended punctuation, Euro. Includes regular, bold, italic and bold-italic weights.
