This is not your average alphabet exchange code. Instead, each symbol represents a sound and words are written phonetically; such as the name "kartografrs sifr" to read "cartographer's cypher". This means that your players will not be able to decipher the code without the key. I also made a lexicon of the most commonly used words in cartography and assign them all symbols akin to the font. They are great for adding a simple one word icon to a map to indicate something is there.
You'll find 2 fonts you can install as well as a PDF on how to use them. To install the fonts just click the file to open them and choose "install" in the upper left-hand corner. Or right-click on the file and choose install.
The cipher and lexicon are for personal non-commercial use only.
I make my text using Photoshop and Fontself.
