Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Update text:
In version 1.2 I've created ENC files and virtual fonts, so that now the 
original TTF font files can be used, at least with pdflatex, and characters 
from "alt" fonts are available. There are also some changes in the s-hooks, 
and roman punctation as well as some alternate tengwar shapes.

Description text:
  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, which should place the sign nicely with relation to 
the preceding signs. So, to write the word "quetta" in Quenya mode one 
would write: \Tquesse\TTacute\Ttinco\TTdoubler\TTthreedots

  TengwarScript supports several free tengwar fonts, 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"
