Equestrian alphabet by JackJacko-Eponymous Equestrian alphabet by JackJacko-Eponymous
Pretty much everything is explained in the image, but I'm adding a note: I already had in mind the overall shape of the letters while working on Avenue of Lost Tales, but it wasn't until later that I decided to come up with an actual alphabet. So while the scribblings in Avenue of Lost Tales resemble these letters, they don't actually have any sense at all.

Font pack link:

As I explain better in the guide included in the pack, I looked into OpenType but didn't find a simple solution to line implementation. Maybe a combination of features would have done the trick, but I'm no coder or font maker so I opted for 7 (yep, seven, sorry guys) fonts that must be combined inside the text block to implement lines. This is very tricky and tiresome I know... Remember though that I never meant this to be a common use font, but just a little decyphering game inside my future works instead.

You're welcome to use these symbols in your works if you want, and you can modify and improve them too. In both cases, just please reference me, thank you ^^

I can't figure out how exactly to make the font work. Halp?

Hello there, sorry for the late reply!

I'll check the font and try to get it in working order again. It always needed a proper makeover anyway!

I'm afraid it'll take some time though, because to make it as I intend to I'll basically have to dig up a tutorial on how to make an arabic font and adapt it to my case. Just as arabic letters have four different shapes each, my letters have up to three, and in both cases they must adapt to the letters that come before or after them. Needless to say, I'm no professional font maker, so I'll have to learn some basics first.

No rush, I just wanted to see what it would look like in large quantities and I was hoping to learn how to actually write with it.

what you think of the writing seen here lh3.googleusercontent.com/--TW…  I forget what episode this image is from but of all the examples we see in the show of writing. there is like 4 different kinds; I think this one is the most believable. 
What are your thoughts on it?

Well, I guess it's something. Why do you think this is the most believable out of all four of them, if I may ask?

well when I say ALL if them I mean the ones displayed in the show. I don't include yours in it. Yours is 100% believable because it works.
But I think that it's the most believable because it has enough characters to work and many of them are basically ripoffs from greek letters which makes sense given how much they draw from greek mythology in the show.
