    Default Runic Alphabet

    I am currently working on a geocache puzzle.
    http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d7d05288-af0b-4869-b869-5d5f5fc3cec4

    I believe this is the one that used to be called (You Probably can't view the cache if you don't have an account, it doesn't matter too much because the important part is the image linked later in the post which I believe you can view)
    "The Messenger's Demise"

    I know that this cache is archived, and I don't actually live anywhere near the location anyway. I'm just trying to solve it for the fun of it.

    Here is my problem, many of the hints given on the page are encoded in the Runic Alphabet and the characters are flipped upside down.

    I've decrypted most of them but there is a runic character that eludes my ability to decrypt. None of the Runic alphabets that I have viewed so far include this character

    If you look at this image

    http://img.geocaching.com/cache/log/...bcc5530330.jpg

    It is the third character.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Oh also the second to last letter on the first line I'm not sure about, but I'm almost positive it is a P.

    EDIT: Nevermind I think I might be able to find the letter through context clues, I recall seeing it in another puzzle and having the same problem.

    I have this font. The third character is "Y".

    Thank you Sslug, I knew I recognized it. I ended up going back and deciphering the rune page on the torment puzzle again, and finding the letter that made sense. I scoured the first two google search results and couldn't find a font that included that symbol.
