From Mordor to Your Keyboard

In Middle-earth, even the forces of evil get their own language. In our latest collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, that language gets its own keycap set. Brand your board with Drop + The Lord of the Rings MT3 Black Speech: a menacing set of keycaps reserved for the most unruly residents of Mordor. Crafted by Sauron himself, “black speech” is a language without script, spoken only by Orcs, Wraiths, and others loyal to the Dark Lord—and written (seldomly) in the Elvish script Tengwar. That’s how it appears most infamously on The One Ring: in a scrawl that can only be described as sinister. It’s in this style that Matt3o created the legends for MT3 Black Speech, retaining the wording from MT3 Elvish, but rendering it in a twisted font befitting of Middle-earth’s most evil tongue. Also changed is the spacebar, which now features The One Ring’s inscription in full. Made from durable, dye-sublimated PBT and finished in an ashen black-and-gray colorway, MT3 Black Speech is available in a wide range of novelty-filled kits—including both Training and Hardcore variants—to bring any setup into shadow.

Question
Will this keycap set have shine-through? Having the lettering be translucent would be SICK. You could configure your backlighting to activate on touch and cause the rune to light up the color of fire for ultimate nerd immersion

This would be awesome, but like @filefish said we would need to manufacture entirely new doubleshot tooling that would only be used for this set - hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately it...Read More
