Default Cool fonts?

Anyone have any examples or favorites?

I like monotype corsiva but I'd like to know of any better-looking ones since they are going to be engraved on my paintball gun.

I like both, but I am looking mainly for a cursive-like font that is legible at about 14 font size or 1/2 inches tall.

The Nine Inch Nails "Sin" Font or the (Band Name) ORGE Font.
I use them a lot for character sheets when i am playing either CyberPunk 2020 or ShadowRun 3rd Ed or Trinity (WW).

I typically use Verdana...I find that more "pleasant" then Arial...

For more "cool" fonts, if you can find it, Lucida Blackletter is the best Gothic font I've seen...
