I finally found a good Rihannsu TTF and can now start tinkering with my signature pic faster. I'll need to do a bit of a work around to get the text aligned from top-bottom, left-right to better simulate Romulan writing.

Current placeholder text in the sig is the character name and I intend for my Romulan char and a Romulan Republic fleet name.

Rihanha is not canon

Yeah. Most of the Romulan words and phrases I can find would be from Diane Duane and they are not considered canon.

As it turns out I misread the information on text direction. Romulan is written and read from left-right, top-bottom.

Sig format is:

Quote:
<Rank> <First (Given) name> <Second (Place) name> <Third (Family) name>
<Fleet name> Romulan Republic.
Finally got to use the font I mentioned. It has both upper case and lower case letters unlike most of the fonts I have found.

It looks good, and the font looks cool.

But, and here is my personal opinion/feedback on your sig.
(Not that you asked for it, but anyway.)

Try make it wider and lower, use the full 500 pixels width and try stay under 110 for height and see how it looks. Then I'd add just some words in Romulan, and write some info that actually can be read by others..
