Does Scribus say they are broken on the console, either on startup or 
first time you use the font?
In fact Scribus 1.3 should recognize more font formats than 1.2. It 
just may be more picky about broken fonts, but you don't want to find 
out about broken fonts when the printer tells you and hands you the 
bill, do you?

Scribus should have no problem with TTF, TTFC and OTF fonts. If it 
does, please report!
