Useful Unicode characters for Roguelikes

Right now these are just hand-picked examples that I thought others may find useful.

Note that some characters look very different in different fonts, so you should ideally choose a font and display this file in it, or test the characters you wish to use in your target font before committing to selections.

If you are viewing this on Github, check out the raw version for a copy/pasteable format. Contributions and pull requests welcome.

For a complete list of characters, see the Unicode character charts.

Note that you will need a font that covers the right characters; some options are noto-fonts (especially unhinted NotoSansSymbols-*.ttf), and the list of unicode fonts at unicode resources.
