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.

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.
