Not sure how to add a description, so I'm doing it here.  This is my take on the (long-stem Danish) Younger Futhark runes as used extensively throughout Scandinavia during the Viking Age, and which further runes were based on.  There are only 16 letters in this alphabet, so many of the English letters ist the closest equivalent.

The normal brackets "(" and ")" serve as ends to cap off an inscription.  If you use a space or a comma, a single dot is inserted.  A period / full stop or a colon will insert a double dot.  Use these to break up words as you see fit.

So strange, I cannot get this one to work. It doesn't show in the fonts list......

Could it be something wrong? It should be at the "V" in the alfabetic list right?

Under Windows 10 (which is what I use), some of the programs type out the font name in the font, so if you look just under Verdana, you should see some Runes pictured there.  That's how it looks for me in MS Word, although in Photoshop, I just see the name of the font in the list.  Does that help?

I realise I am 2 years too late, but it appears that you're missing the letter "Yr" it's like an upside down "maðr".

Well that is embarassing, and also odd that it took 2 years for anyone to spot it! Needless to say, I've added the Yr rune to the "Y" keybinding. Thanks for spotting and reporting it, @odin97!
