I apologize for the delay; thank you for prompting me.

Thanks again,

The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

Name of contribution: TengwarScript
Author's name: Ignacio Fernández Galván
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/tengwarscript
Summary description: A package for writing tengwar with LaTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
The TengwarScript package provides a mid-level access to tengwar fonts 
while still generating good output by default. Each tengwar sign has an 
individual command, wich should place the sign nicely with relation to 
the preceding signs. So, to write the word "quetta" in Quenya mode one 
would write: \Tquesse\Tacute\Ttinco\TTdoubler\TTthreedots

TengwarScribe supports several tengwar fonts which can be found in 
Type 1 format or easily converted, including Dan Smith's fonts, 
Tengwar Parmaite, Tengwar Annatar and others. The full set of supported 
fonts can be found in the manual and in the sample "tengfonts.pdf" file.
