Someday I should really clean up and release my Unicode nethack with the alembic ⚗ potions and the fisheye ◉ floating eyes. (I'm not any nethack guru -- I was just piggybacking on other patches that did the heavy lifting.)

I also learned recently that ,while most of the Latin alphabet is unavailable as subscripted characters in Unicode, schwa is. Interesting choice...

Bubbletext is Enclosed Alphanumerics. Anyone know why these are codepoints in Unicode? They've been there a long time, but I'm curious why they weren't considered typographic variants. Particularly odd to see things like ⓫ (but no black 0-10) and ⓻ vs ⑦.

It's from the Fraktur Mathematical Symbols range, part of the Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols block. You can just copy/paste from that page. Actually, sounds pretty easy to script:
$ echo "Some text here" | perl -CS -pe 'tr/A-Za-z/\x{1d504}-\x{1d51d}\x{1d51e}-\x{1d537}/'

Hey, it looks like unnethack, one of the major nethack forks is gearing up to support Unicode and contemplating doing cool things with accents to distinguish different monsters in the same class.

A friend of mine used to own umop-episdn.com, for which I provided DNS hosting. As a result, I can now read and spell "umop episdn" with the greatest of ease, although the skill has not transferred to reading or writing anything else upside down.

Anyone know why these are codepoints in Unicode? They've been there a long time, but I'm curious why they weren't considered typographic variants.
They're used in Japanese and Korean (and possibly other languages) to label items in ordered lists. As such, there can be an important distinction between "Item (1)" and "Item  ① ", and it can be necessary to preserve that distinction in plain text.

However, I believe the primary reason that these were included (particularly the parenthesized and full-stop forms) was for compatibility with preexisting East Asian character sets.
Particularly odd to see things like ⓫ (but no black 0-10) and ⓻ vs ⑦.
❶  through  ❿  are in the "Dingbats" block.
