The Torrnuq syllabary was created by René M P for the fictional conworld of Wah'gai. It is the primary writing system of the various “beastblood” tribes of the Great Central Plain and the Fang Mountain Range. The script has undergone almost five and a half millennia's worth of evolution, and has incorporated several different writing systems, from classical Engarun, to descendants of the Tami Pictographs.
One can get an accurate picture of the script's history and evolution just by studying the ornate carvings on the tombs of the Turunakuma tribes, from where the script's popular name comes. These tribes were great conquerors, and were responsible for the Kamatiwa language and the script that assumed their name. This language, which is still in use, is one of the most confusing ever spoken on the two worlds, it being a bastardization of the 17 different tongues spoken by the tribes assimilated by the Turunakuma.
Note: Several syllables may be represented in more than one way
