Symbols

So what's with the symbols in today's (3/2) strip? I admit it, I'm rather thick, but I don't get it. Speaking in runes? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

Yup. Call it "Katherine hates chants so she drew something that looked cool and hoped everyone would pick up on it as being a magic spell."

Actually, there's more to it than that. I am using the same symbols for the same spells. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>Compare the spells in today's strip to the one Gill says in <A HREF="http://ancientmessages.keenspace.com/d/20001128.html" TARGET=_blank>November 28th's page.</A> One of them is the same symbol.

I figured it was a spell. Either that or he was cussing in a ancient language! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Don't get me wrong, though. I think using symbols for spellcasting is a great idea! It works well.<p>[This message has been edited by gordon (edited 03-02-2001).]

I think there are rune fonts out there, there was a phonetic one used in the old Ultima series games, that I have seen used elsewhere where runes are called for. It is even functional. I could read and write in it during High School (Needed a life to say the least).
