This archive contains tex, tfm and pk files which  were  used  for  the  rune
alphabet in ALIVE 4. Also included is the F77 source for a program to prepare
text files for use with this font.

THIS IS A HACK! I don't know enough MetaFont to create my  own  fonts,  so  I
used BitMapToFont to make fonts usable by TeX. The result is, these fonts can
only be used with 300dpi devices  (DeskJet,  LaserJet,  Previewer).  Well,  I
_did_  also  print  on a FujitsuDL (360dpi) but the output is not really what
you want.

Usage:
------
Copy the pk files in the appropriate directory.  For  my  EMTeX  installation
this would be:
C:\EMTEX\TEXFONTS\PIXEL.DJ\300DPI\
For PasTeX this would be:
TeX:fonts/pk/deskjet/300/

Copy the tfm files in the appropriate directory. For  my  EMTeX  installation
this would be:
C:\EMTEX\TFM\
For PasTeX this would be:
TeX:fonts/tfm/

Create a TeX file and include old_rune/new_rune. Here the commands for  using
these  fonts  are  (re)defined.  You  can  then use \{Letter} to print a rune
symbol. Look into the included files to see which  chars  are  available.  Be
careful not to use more than 14 chars per line, the chars are ½inch high. TeX
does no correct line- or wordbreak, since the chars are no letters. You  have
to do it by hand (I said it was a hack...).

For easier usage, I wrote a (very simple) Fortran77 program to convert  ascii
text  files  to  files  which can be included by main.tex The EXE file is for
DOS, I am working on a C version. See main.tex for the main file and code.tex
for an example to print all available characters.

All output will be acording to the rune alphabet used in:
    ALIVE 4 - Das Konzil der Magier
To make your own table have a look at old_rune/new_rune.

Disclaimer:
Use at your own risk. I am not responsible for anything that happens when you
use (parts of) this package. Do not use Windows.
You are free to use the pk, tfm, tex and fortran files.
The rune bitmaps (oldrune.pcx, newrune.pcx) which were  used  to  create  the
bitmaps  are  not free, use grid.iff to create your own fonts. If you want to
use them anyway, ask me, I might give them away for a little reward :-)

You want to know what ALIVE is? Well, it's _a_ LIVE ROLE PLAYING GAME.
