    My own Runic Code!

    February 20, 2014 by SuzukiA23

    Yesterday I made my own Runic Code and I named it Philadelphia Runic Code or Philly Runes for short. But it isn't really a real Runic Code because it doesn't use too much Runic Letters. I call it a runic code because I kind of feel like naming it a rune.



    These are the letters:

    A - ᚤ

    B - β

    C - ゑ

    D - Д

    E - ޏ

    F - Ø

    G - γ

    H - פ

    I - ဣ

    J - ჯ

    K - ϧ

    L - Լ

    M - ά

    N - И

    O - ⲟ

    P - ·−−·

    Q - ʁ
