Dorai Minath    Dorai Minath

Dorai Minath was created by Alex Mason in July of 2005 as an alphabet for use by the Draconic people of Ardor (a fantasy world he created) to write Dorai Ssatha, their language. It was originally quite different from the one pictured here but was revised again and again until this version was created.

Internal History

The Draconic People, or the Dragons, as they are more commonly known, started as a fairly primitive race and, as such, did not begin to create their own paper or writing utensils for quite some time. Dorai Minath was originally meant to be carved into stone or wooden surfaces and as such, there are no curves in the alphabet. All the letters are drawn with straight lines. The straight line form of the alphabet is still used, even though the Dragons have long since become one of the most civilized races on Ardor.
