"Delith" Ring Logographic by WurdBendur "Delith" Ring Logographic by WurdBendur
This is the same as my other Delith Ring [link] with the same text, but written with logographs rather than spelled with an alphabet. The language is the one I constructed for the fantasy world called Grun. This writing style is typical of Lower Geldor, where the language originated.

If you're worried that this looks a whole lot like Chinese, worry no more: The appearance and the usage of the characters is intentionally similar to Chinese, but there are significant differences in radicals (parts that make up characters) and phonology.

I made this because I wanted to make myself a ring, and I'm trying to decide what to put on it. Of course, I still have no idea, I don't have the materials or the experience to make a ring, and I have no idea where I could go to get an engraving like that done.

Edit: These symbols read, in Lower Geldorian, as "Delith nerektos keto doth mül so mili", which is my translation of "Reflections of fear cast shadows of nothing." This is a line from the Naruto ending song "Wind".

Beautiful piece. Well done with Photoshop, at first I did think it was a finished work of silver. Good luck getting a final actual ring made sometime, should look great when you do. :)

It's not actually an alphabet. The writing there is logographic, so there are a huge number of characters that I don't have online anywhere.
The other version of the ring, however, is alphabetic.

The alphabet is the one in this font, and I have a chart here (note that some letters have alternate forms).
