>>> FAQ <<<

QUESTION:  Did you make this font by yourself?
ANSWER: The letters A D G I L R S U and W are from the Guild Wars logo, the other letters are ones I based of characteristics of those.

QUESTION: Can I use this for for (insert project name here)?
ANSWER: I made my work available for the community to use, but technically it is a derivative work which Anet would be able to claim the rights to. It would be use at your own risk, they can tell you to stop.

QUESTION:  I am using it in (insert project name here), can/should I pay you a royalty or something?
ANSWER: Nope.
--------------------------------


UPDATED SEPT 7th 2009:  Version 1.1.  Changes include: using the first choice for E F replacement and the third M choice. Assorted tweaks to several other letters to smooth out bumps.

Download Version 1.1

Please note the file name is different than the first version, so if replacing v1.0 you will need to go delete the old one. I'm partial to the old E so have both loaded. :P Once again: This will not overwrite the old font file. Also, I noticed in Photoshop the font seems to look best when set to Strong instead of Normal.

I only did the letters so you will have to use a different font for numbers and special characters but its a start!

I'm sure I'll be using it when GW2 is released and start up a new comic series.
Thanks! =)

I was iffy about using that as the M, I might change that in the future if I add numbers too. (Not happening this month though, too many things lined up right now.)

@ Winnies Bro. You download the .ttf file and place it in your C:/Windows/Fonts folder.  Then it appears as a choice in whatever Word/Paint/etc programs you use.




Also, the Photoshop styles I used for the gold and blue text are somewhere in here.  Lots of neat freebies.

Some points of constructive criticism:

I think you were right about the "M", it looks a bit out of place just being an overturned "W".  The "E" and the "F" look strange to me as well, because they have a curved middle line.  Instead, you may want to think about having a detached smaller line much like your "A" and "H".

I agree. Overall the font looks great, but I'm not crazy about the E, F, and M.

Kiya, thanks for posting these fonts, they look really good!  Btw, I like the bottom E&F and the top M.
When GW2 gets closer to release I'd like to use these in the graphics for redesigning my guild's webpage. Nice work,  :)
