I like to make tings difficult for myself, so I invented an alphabet that doesn’t fit very nicely into existing Unicode. Sorry.
Awakeman is lying flat on their back, on what might be some kind of stone slab, and squints and looks around without moving.
A robed figure is standing a few metres away.
ROBED FIGURE: ᒬ<|◹
Awakeman sits up.
ROBED FIGURE: ┌┘⟋ ᔀ>╚Ґ <Ґᔀ ⟔⟋|⟍ ◹┌⟋<|⟋⚬
There is a statue of another robed figure on a hexagonal base, holding a vase that is pouring water into a fountain. In the background is a dark patterned wall with a hexagonal window. The robed figure continues expositing on something.
ROBED FIGURE: ⟔⟋┌<ᐴ• ᒲ>∟•⟔⟋ |<⊤⟋ ┼⟋⟔⟋⚬ ⟔⟋|⟍⚬
AWAKEMAN: Who are you and how did I get here?
ROBED FIGURE: ┘ ┼<דּ⟋ Ґ> ┘ᔀ⟋< ╚┼<⟍ ┌<Ґᒬ∟<ᒬ⟋ ᒲ>∟ |◹⟍<┐⚬
AWAKEMAN: I have no idea what language that is. Hrrnngh… Think!
