Looking for a good alternative to Messenger with a broader character set

I just wonder if anybody know about an alternative to this delightful gem, but with a multilingual glyph-set. I really dig the rounded serifs, the quirky leg on the R and the overall beefiness of the typeface. The S has a delightful flow, in my honest opinon. Patricularly interested in ÆØÅ, as a Norwegian.

Time to get into type design and add those letters. 😉

Oh, I’ve considered that for sure. I did it with Crafter (Crafter Nordic). I tried to be as respectful as possible about it, removing some glyphs to encourage people to get the original as well. https//torbo.no/crafter-nordic/

Did the same thing with Norwester, Franchise and Homestead as well, but they are not published anywhere (because I didn't bother to cripple them with removing special characters like I did with Crafter).

Let’s see how this goes first. 😉👍

Captain Nelson is actually pretty cool, but it doesn’t have the charming swoosh on the leg of the R though.
