Does anyone know where i can find the latest and greatest in regards to the D'ni fonts (specifically i'm looking for the numerals, but ultimately I'll need the letters too).

Following links (and google hunts), most of the places seem to be 404 error pages these days. The one dniscript22.zip i found has a couple of problems - of the 3 fonts in the Zip, XP complains that the Angular font is damaged (the other two, standard and Linguistic Mapping(LM) seem ok), and neither of the working ones have the Cyclical Zero/25 (which i need).

Currently, it looks like my best bet is to just create the numerals myself (they are to go onto an image i'm working on, so being a OpenType/TrueType font isn't essential, just more useful).

Yours in hope,

Elkestra

Much as I'd like to take full credit for this, Chucker has Cyan's official D'ni font on MYSTlore here.

There's also a mapping guide (for which I'd also love to take full credit ;)) available here.

Both resources linked to from this entry on DPWR (which I will more than happily take credit for ;)).

I've got a zip with several different fonts linked to from here:

Come to think of it, I should add Blade's D'niDings to the zip.

With the exception of the D'ni fonts, you can actually get every font in ces's post from mystfonts.com, no email required :).

One of the D'ni fonts does strraaannnngeeee things to PDF files. You'll be looking at a PDF, and all of a sudden, it's in D'ni!

If you turn off 'use local fonts' in Acrobat, it fixes it. You should toss a PM to BladeLakem, too since he's trying to track down the cause of the problem.

Alahmnat,

Thanks for the info about the fonts! :D

I've been collecting them over the years from various places, and I was sure that someone somewhere had probably gathered them all together, but just in case I wanted to let everyone know what I had.
