Stormwarden script

Jump to: navigation, search

The Stormwarden script is a writing system on Roshar used by Stormwardens (the scholars who predict highstorms).[1]

This script allows Stormwardens (who are male) to avoid the cultural prohibition against writing by men. It is much less complex than the women's script; it adapts glyphs for use as a written language, stringing groups together to form sentences. Occasionally it will use glyphs phonetically to create words that do not have assigned glyphs. For example, Meridas Amaram used the glyphs parap, shenesh and idi to represent Parshendi. He underlined the grouping to indicate that it was being used phonetically.[1]
