The Falthari alphabet was invented in 2005 by Jonathan Diamond for use in a
fantasy he was writing. Originally in the novel, the Falthari language was
used for magic spells and incantations and considered a dead language.
He became intrigued by the language, however, and soon began to develop it,
along with its writing system. As he worked on the language, he also created
a [fictional] people who would speak it, the Falthari Nation.
The script was highly influenced by Mongolian and Manchu, with adaptations
from the Falthari "block script". To the Falthari people, everything is art,
and when using the Falthari script, one must take care to make it beautiful.
Sample text in the Falthari
Peirem-Faltharina agma sar rudhma del apothenia del searmia avarma.
Gaifem-yedhma getanni del mothenni delu riald-leta yedhma palagmo detharme
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
