Maedol  Super excited to launch our new collaboration keycap sets today. This has been a project long in the works with both matt3o and the good people of Middle-earth and we are finally ready to share this goodness with all of you.   Today we launch the MT3 Lord of the Rings Elvish and Dwarvish keycap sets. These come in both Trainer and Hardcore variety, and have a whole lot of novelties and extras available. The trainer will include front printed English to help us newbies properly assign the keys, while Hardcore is for the well seasoned Tengwar and Cirth scholars out there.   BUT. A lot of effort went into getting the details right on this set for both the looks and the accuracy of the language, so not only do these things look awesome, they’re functional as well. And they’re licensed. The trifecta.  You can read a lot more about it over at matt3o’s blog here(https://matt3o.com/the-lore-behind-the-tolkien-keycaps/), including some of the translations for the novelty keys, as well as a lot of the inspiration and story behind the keycaps.  No gelin idh raid lîn, a no adel len i chwest

Any chances of an Autumn or Evenstar restock? Sold out with a month to go sucks!

So no one is gonna talk about that the whole keyboard is messed up? There's no correct letters on it. Why elvish "l" is "j"? Why "s" is "m"? That's an interesting idea, but very bad realised for only posturing for being "Tolkienist and using sindarin", nothing more.

This has been answered multiple times already, the characters are aligned to the Dan Smith fantasy fonts, so they match up when you type with them. The designer has a whole video explaining how to do this on his blog, also linked here repeatedly.

Huge missed opportunity Color ways that don't go with basically any setup, Dye sub instead of double shot while asking $100 or more... Hard pass on this

unfortunately this set would be close to impossible to manufacture in double-shot. That being said I prefer PBT for its durability, so win-win.

1) No there are not (decently) double shot abs for $10. At best they might be crappy thin laser etched. I'm talking about well-done dye sub. Look at for example the keyboard that drop had with lotus pool keycaps. Intricate dye sub and the whole keyboard was like $100 2) I'm not referring to generic mt3 sets. Gmk (even on drop) is in the same price range for often unique moulds. The fact still stands that $120+ for a dye sub set is a bit ridiculous when you look at average prices of other good quality dye sub sets. I'm sure you can pull up one or 2 examples of other sets going for same or more, but just because an Hermes t-shirt is $2000 doesn't mean a Gucci t-shirt is a good value at $500 😂

It is astounding how DROP managed to miss with this set of all sets. I'm a huge Tolkien nerd, I used to read and write Elvish, Dwarvish, etc. I am the ideal enthusiast for this set and I'm not going to get it. Once again, disappointing there's no R5 bottom row, especially on ortho. I'll be passing on this and the dwarvish set. While I would have liked to see hardcore Ortho, missing R5 makes this an absolute no. DROP. Give us R5 Ortho kits.
