Ladowshand Ladowshand

Ladowshand was created by Arcee Gonepike in late 2022. It can be used to write English and other languages written with the Latin script. The idea for Ladowshand came when Arcee was sitting in the shadow of his hometown concert hall, and it was almost named "Zarkdone". Both names are spoonerisms, "Shadow Land" and "Dark Zone", referencing the place where the writing system's concept was created.
