Kjaalekul Kjaalekul

The Kjaalekul (Old Hand) script was invented by Matt Ward as a ceremonial script for his conlang, Ulmaak. It is an Abugida and is written vertically. He started working on it in late 2016 and finished in late 2017. Vulcan inspired some of the original consonants, but the actual way to write it is not set - this causes up to five different ways to write one consonant-vowel pair. The connection of the glyphs is not mandatory in larger texts but helps with aesthetic effect when done correctly.
