Immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings in Middle-earth, the Elves are a race unlike any other in Tolkien’s work. On the officially licensed Drop + The Lord of the Rings MT3 Elvish Keycap Set, we’re bringing their elegance and mesmerizing script to your keyboard. Instantly recognizable from writings on legendary items such as the One Ring, the script of Tengwar was created by the ancient Elf Fëanor and eventually replaced the runelike Cirth to become the text of choice for Elvish languages such as Sindarin: the language featured on this set. Designed by Matt3o in a subdued-green-and-off-white colorway, its ornate legends are faithful translations of corresponding Sindarin terms and Tengwar characters—and its durable, dye-sublimated PBT build ensures lasting brilliance with an exceptional feel. For those who need a guide, the Training Elvish and Elvish Ortholinear kits feature both Tengwar and traditional legends. For pure Tengwar, check out the Hardcore Elvish, Elvish Extras, Autumn in Rivendell, and Evenstar Kits.
On this kit, all legends are Tengwar. It covers standard 60% through TKL layouts and will work as a base for full-size layouts. There are also alternative modifiers for enthusiast layouts like HHKB, Winkeyless, 65%, 75% layouts. Finally, the set also contains an ISO enter key and other keys for ISO layouts.
Translations for the Tengwar modifiers are as follows:
This kit contains the exact same key makeup as the Hardcore Elvish Base Kit—except all keys have have Latin sublegends for the alphas and side-print legends for modifiers.
This kit fits both Preonic and Planck keyboards, as well as many other ortholinear layouts. The alpha legends have Latin sublegends and modifiers have side-print Latin legends.
This is a standard numpad kit with legends in Tengwar only. It also includes an Eye of Sauron novelty keycap.

Each of the images is rendered in the same style as Tolkien’s hand-drawn artwork in his original works.

This kit includes a host of extra spacebars in the standard Elvish color.
In Middle Earth, there is no bigger hoarder of treasure than the dragon Smaug. For our first release with The Lord of the Rings—a pair of handcrafted wrist rests—we could think of no better inspiration. Equal parts typing tool and eye-catching jewel, each one is meticulously crafted and vividly colored with handmade attention to detail. Both are worthy of Smaug’s hoard, and both feature the dragon himself. Plus, each one is shaped with a typing angle between 7 and 9 degrees for optimal comfort. Choose the menacing Eye of Smaug or the ornate Smaug’s Lair to complement your style—and select a 65% or TKL to fit your setup.
Throughout its nearly 5,000-year lifetime, the One Ring traveled to many corners of Middle-earth. In this official collaboration with The Lord of the Rings, we’re commemorating a select few of them in a set of artisan keycaps masterfully handcrafted by our friends at Dwarf Factory. Perhaps the most renowned is Mount Doom: the Ring’s first and final resting place. There, sitting atop a bed of lava, the Ring shows its true nature by revealing the language of Mordor engraved on its surface. Next is Anduin: the longest river of the Third Age, on whose bed the Ring lay in wait for several millennia after the first defeat of Sauron and the death of his foe, Isildur. Eventually, the Ring was discovered by Smeagol, taken by Bilbo, and passed to Frodo, who journeyed with it to the enchanted land of Lothlórien, where it famously tested the elven queen, Galadriel. Choose from these three legendary locations, and bring the One Ring to a keyboard in your collection.
