The 22 Foundational Glyphs in "Milhamah" depict the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet. Get ready to enter a study of Hebrew grammar.

The otiyot, also known as the Foundational Glyphs, are 22 letters or “signs” that legend says helped create the world. In the fictional world of “Milhamah,” the letters (seen here in Phoenician or Ketav ‘Ivri “Paleo-Hebrew” style) are not mystical but tangible. The singular of otiyot is ot.

Bavel'slinguists believe that each glyph contains enormous powers, though they disagree on the nature of their powers. As a result, the Holy Tongue Society is trying to find and preserve the otiyot while keeping them away from Bavel’s clutches.
