Before the invention of letters and a real scripts the Quendi had used simple symbols and signs, often as wards.These had quite a bit of an impact on the developement of the Tengwar and Sarati.The Avari continued to use such symbols, known as "Tekmâi" or "Kirtêi".

Two scripts of the easterlings, southeastern "Shayan glyphs" ( used by the Sháy and their neighbours) and northeastern "Fustir runes" (used in the Far north by the people of Barl Syrnac and Mur Fostisyr) were obviously derived from early avar-glyphs as well.


In Rolemaster the Shayan and Mur-fostisyr scripts are represented by Aurabesh (originally from Star Wars) and Thorass (originally from forgotten realms).
