Can anybody tell me what alphabet this is?
« on: 22 November 2020, 01:36:39 »
The recent "BattleTech meets Call of Cthulhu???" thread inspired me to do some random web surfing looking for any other examples of people trying to blend the Cthulhu Mythos with other genres. I eventually came across a truly hilarious webcomic called Hello Cthulhu, which shows what happens when Cthulhu tries to invader the dimension of Hello Kitty. And in a couple of episodes we see some writing in weird letters or hieroglyphs or runes or whatever. They're like nothing else I can ever remember seeing before, and I was wondering if by any chance there's anybody here who can tell me where they're from?

Here are a couple of links to the relevant pages of the webcomic.

Ever felt that The Powers That Were at FASA, WizKids and FanPro never gave Victor Steiner-Davion and the Federated Commonwealth a fair shake in the canon timeline? Then you might be interested in my Victor Victorious AU at

"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Wow, haven't thought about that comic in a long time.
