Is there a way to make a new alphabet on Wordpad?

So I'm working on a cipher similar to that in Artemis Fowl. It's going to be a 1:1 translation, if not similar to runes (phone spelled FON). I can get the ball rolling while having my own symbols, but I'm wondering if there were a way to put these symbols into a typable font.

Honestly this is for a personal journal. It's an interesting art project I'm working on called an alphabet of desire. My plan will be to save it on a flash drive and pretty much only use it for the 1 computer I have. Will that still work?

The problem you're going to run into there is when you try to distribute it. Generally speaking, most readers/word processors rely on a common pool of typefaces, and don't embed them into the files be default.

Thank you! These are all excellent directions I'll be looking into.

Thank you! I knew there had to be some word for it.

Yes, you can do that, but the word you want is "typeface."
