There are a number of freely available fonts for writing with the
scripts invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. This package makes it vastly
easier to use those fonts with pdfTeX and pdfLaTeX. The fonts
themselves are (mostly) not part of the package.

Specifically, this package provides support for writing English,
Quenya, and Sindarin with tengwar and cirth/angerthas. It also
provides support for writing Dwarvish with cirth, Quenya with sarati
and valmaric letters, and English with Anglo-Saxon runes, as used in
The Hobbit.

It supports the use of the fonts Tengwar Annatar, Cirth Erebor, Sunrunes
(my own font; part of the package), Sarati Eldamar, Valmaric Eldamar,
and can be easily edited to support Tengwar Eldamar, Tengwar Parmaite,
Tengwar Noldor, Tengwar Quenya, and Tengwar Sindarin. You can get them

tolkien­fonts – Use TTF "Tolkien" fonts from the WWW with pdfTeX

The vir­tual fonts in this pack­age al­low the user to eas­ily write English, Quenya and Sin­darin in sev­eral modes with J.R.R. Tolkien's teng­war, cirth, sarati and val­maric scripts, us­ing freely avail­able TrueType fonts found on the in­ter­net.

Sup­port is at very nearly the high­est pos­si­ble level; the point of this pack­age was to avoid bizarre spellings or lots of spe­cial com­mands.

Fonts sup­ported are Teng­war An­natar, Cirth Ere­bor, Sarati and Val­maric El­damar, and (with a lit­tle more work) Teng­war Par­maite, El­damar, Noldor, Quenya and Sin­darin.
