Dragon Runes Unicode

I recently joined this website, and I noticed that the Dovah Runes ([These letters]) are just a typeface and, if pasted anywhere else, just return as capital Latin characters. Now, what I've been trying to do for the past four hours or so is recreate the runic font made by ASV and Matthew Luckow as Private Use Area unicode glyphs, so that you can copy and paste them into just about any computer application and see them as runes. I was succesfully able to make the runes paste-able into local-only applications like notepad and Word, but things like Discord and Google Chrome still display the missing character symbol. Right now, my goal is to get Chrome to display the symbols as runes, then other apps can come later. If anyone is interested in helping, don't hesitate to contribute to the thread. (Also, until there's at least a semi-working version  of the unicode runes and permission from Paarthurnax, I have no intention of neither officially nor unofficially affiliating the project with Thuum.org)

I'm not nearly technically inclined enough to help, but I just wanted to say good luck, this sounds like a cool project!

Unfortunately, he's rarely active now-days. He's the only one with the technical capability.
