Wintertree Software
[Jean McGuire]

Programmer and gamer based in Aiken, SC. Designer of the commercial font package Arcane Alphabets and the free font Instahex. These typefaces go back to ca. 1997, but updates have been made until 2019. . Purchase fonts here:

  • Albrecht. An ornate blackletter based on work by the German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer.
  • Babington. The cipher famously used by Mary, Queen of Scots, when she was imprisoned by and plotting to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, which cost her her life.
  • Blaise. A collection of three cipher fonts, Blaise, Blaise Round, and Blaise Block.
  • Celestia.
  • Coelbren. Named after Coelbren y Beirdd, the purported bards' alphabet of Wales.
  • Cowboy. A cipher font based on authentic cattle brands from the Old West.
  • Crowley, a font based on Aleister Crowley's Alphabet of Daggers.
  • DarkCity, a font for making city skylines.
  • EasyHex ad InstaHex (a free font from 1997). Eighty-six hex paper fonts for gamers.
  • Enochian.
  • Etruscan.
  • Gold Bug. Based on the cipher used by Edgar Allan Poe in his classic story "The Gold-Bug."
  • Grimoire. This package consists of three fonts, two of which date to the Renaissance era and the third of which was created in a similar style specifically for gaming use. Theban is sometimes called "the alphabet of the witches" and is still in use today to keep writing safe from prying eyes. Magi is derived from the Writing of the Mages, another Renaissance-era alphabet, this one based on Hebrew, with a unique look. Magehand was designed specifically for gaming use, based on Theban and other real-world secret and magical alphabets. It has the general look and feel of the two real ones without actually being them.
  • Hieroglyphic Borders.
  • Hieroglyphica. Egyptian hieroglyphs.
  • Illuminati. A cipher font based on a secret alphabet supposedly used by the Illuminati.
  • Lycian. The Lycians were ancient residents of Anatolia, and they wrote with an alphabet which had much in common with Greek, but also differed in many ways, as their language had many different sounds.
  • Nug-Soth. A cipher font.
  • Ogham. Ogham is an ancient Irish writing system.
  • Oukoine: Many ancient alphabets are derived from Phoenician by way of ancient Greek. They are not, however, all from the same version of ancient Greek. Just as the language (Koine) had local dialects, the alphabet did too. Different letters were used in Athens, Crete, and other Greek city-states. Eventually the Ionian version became the common alphabet for the Greek world, from which the modern Greek k alphabet developed. Our own, however, came from the Euboean variant, which was used by the Etruscans and then, as with so much Etruscan culture and technology, the Romans. This explains, for example, the reason both the "C" and the "G" of the Roman alphabet look so little like the gamma of the Greek alphabet: it's not derived from that Greek alphabet.
  • Pigpen Pigpen, Pigpen Square, and Royal Arch. Cipher fonts.
  • PolyDice. For polyhedral dice (dFour, dSix, dEight, dTen, dTwelve, dTwenty).
  • Rune Borders.
  • Runes. Runes contains both authentic runes, derived from the Elder Futhark, and rune-style characters for the modern alphabet.
  • Sabaean.
  • Ugaritic. Ugaritic cuneiform.
