Windlass is an existing font licensed by Rare to use in their upcoming Sea of Thieves game. They asked me to help them extend and update the typeface for their needs.
As part of my work, I extended the character set to meet their requirements, completely respaced the typeface to achieve an even color, added OpenType substitutions to reduce bad collisions, and updated the design of particular problematic characters.
One of the interesting challenges in extending the character set, was to ensure that the new diacritics and other elements fit into the design of the existing letters.
