Erathia Font Version 1.0:

By tomchen1989


I believe HoMM III and MM7 Players can hardly forget the memorable time in Erathia. But, do you really know the language of Erathia? You can't survive if you don't even speak the language there! :S

When we are talking to the local people or watching the guideboard in the game MM7, in surprise, we can find that people in Erathia use English 8| .Same pronunciation but the different characters. So, here is the Erathia language font made by me. Hope you enjoy it and write in Erathia language without any trouble. :hoo:

Look at the eng_era_mapping.png to know how it works. The other characters like the numerals and the punctuation marks use times new roman font.


Copy the Erathia.ttf to your system font folder C:\WINDOWS\Fonts, then you can use it.

Distribute the Erathia.ttf with the readme file.


THE FONT FILE DOWNLOAD:
erathia_font_en.7z - 0.19MB



My friend and I made a Converting Tool, to convert English to UBB and HTML code for Erathian language, here it is:
http://www2.heroworld.net/universe/lanconvert.html

Now it is only in chinese, but you don't need to understand. Type your English words (allowed only in English without accent marks) in the first text area. Then you click the first button to convert.

Then copy the UBB on the forum like this:

If you speak Chinese, you can discuss all these things here:

Wow, this is excellent! Thanks :hoo:

I once wrote an article on the Erathian Alphabet here, would you mind if I post a download link to this font there? With credits to you, of course :)
