    I like all the being loved forever I'm getting for this. Most pleasant. This is why I love the Playground so much.

    Now, there is no C, in Futhark. There are two alternatives, depending on pronunciation, as it is phonetic, Kenaz (K) and Sowilo (S). So, tell me which way it's pronounced, and I'll use the more accurate one. (If it's Ch, then it's best approximated by K-J, so I'm not sure what to do in that case. I guess I'd use a subtle Kenaz and Jera, seeing as Kenaz is already part of Jera that's easy enough.)

    These are in fact my initials (different order, which isn't important for bindrunes), JRG. So I could use this too. But, my other names are more deserving of magic.

    Same as I noted a few above, there isn't a C in Futhark, but pick K or S from phonetics and I can do it no problem!

    SEJK...This one is interesting. S, J, and K have a lot of redundancy (Jera and Sowilo are actually both made of up one Kenaz and one flipped Kenaz). So I'm going to make a couple, with varying degrees of prominence of different characters, see what you think comes out best!

    ...Ok, with so much overlap, there is an incredible range of options to combine these. They work really well around Ehwaz as a base, too. I made four, and honestly I could keep going for quite a while...

    Worked out pretty well, I think. I like nesting runes like Ansuz or Fehu inside of bigger ones with triangles, like in the first one here and in my DF.

    Bonus points if you can make the runes look like an animal
    Fun challenge. I made a standard rune (and a variant on it) to start. Came out with quite an unusual look, I like it though. I couldn't manage to make one which looks like an animal, but I did manage to make an simple-form running (or leaping?) man, which I think works quite well.
