    Well, from what you posted, you have the following correct:

    I_ * _O_ * _A_ * R_ _D * _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ * HA_E * _SS_ES * _ _ _ _ * _I_E * ME * HOORAH

    So you know what A D E H I M O R S are

    First word: You got the second character confused with A for some reason.

    Second word: First character is not an M and the third character is not an N. Just because they look like that letter doesn't always mean it is.

    Third word:

    Fourth word: The second character is tricky as it represents 2 letters.

    Fifth word: The first character once again represents 2 letters although different ones as the symbol is different. Since you already know S though, I'm confused why you don't have an S in there yet.

    Sixth word: This word has the same 2 letter symbol as the last word does. You also already know E so why that's missing I don't know.

    Seventh word: Same word as the second word.

    Eighth word: You're close. Just missing the third character.

    Ninth word: Again, the fourth character is not an N.

    Tenth word: You already know S so that should be in there.

    Eleventh word:

    Twelfth word: Yep.

    Thirteenth word: Yep.

    So this is what you should have so far:
    I_ * _O_ * _A_ * R_ _D * _ _ _S * _ _E_ * _O_ * HA_E * _SS_ES * _ _S_ * _I_E * ME * HOORAH

    Also the character that looks like l mean either of 2 different characters so it may be an A or it may be a B (not those 2 but this is just an example although the letters are next to each other on the alphabet).

    Also the same goes for the character you kept thinking was a N.

    hint: I translated only 3 other letters, for the rest I could just fill in the blanks.

    WOW JUMPMAN ITS FUN TO TYPE IN FUTHARC[?]
    OH AND
    LAGMAN LOST THE COOKIE
    HA HA
    BUT YOU CHEATED LINKBOY
    SO MAYBE LAGMAN SHOULD GET THE COOKIE ANYWAYS
    IF YOU DIDNT EATED IT

    EDIT: Ah, it's the runic alphabet. I believe that's the alphabet JRR Tolkien created his from. Which would explain why some of your symbols are different.

    I didn't cheat, just used unconventional methods.
