Hexagonal script by juhhmi Hexagonal script by juhhmi
For my fantasy world Grundet: juhhmi.deviantart.com/gallery/…

The quick guide and terrible diphthong table.

edit1: Developed by the monks of ? for their sacred texts

edit2: The hexagonal script was constructed to be used with Rinapri during the Age of Coast Temples, and it survives only as the most sacred script with decorationally complex orthography, various writing direction combinations and secret messages opening for those with the Eye. Hexagonal texts cover walls of coast temples and spells are carved onto amulets.

Same here... The monks who invented this had to be masters in writing!

I'm not sure how to read the table. Can you explain? I know it's something like Pigpen, but it's just not quite clear...

Ah yes, I should've used same hexagonal form for the corresponding Latin table. They all are supposed to be at the same location on rows and diagonals. I hope this clarifies:

'Double'-indicator is a circle inside a hexagon, and the double-vowels (with circles as well) continue to the down-right-diagonal from it. The double-circle also divides left for consonants and right for the six main vowels (in hexagons' corners on the top row) and diphthongs. Down-right consonant-diagonals are supposed to include derived forms, and diphthongs are combined of two vowel lines.

Oh, now I get it! I had assumed that the key was actually a sample text.

Ah, this reminds me of a script I wrote with pentagons...

Hexagons are indeed nice and quite versatile. And thank you for the favourite too! :)
