It looks like all the buying options just have parts of the set such as the numpad. If I were to select an option would it include those specialty keys and the regular set or just those specialty keys? Also how can I select the set with just Russian writing over the set with Russian writing and English characters underneath? I would very much like to buy this set but not before I get an answer.

Any updates on whether or not these are going to ever be restocked? (specifically the elven kits)

I love these pure Cyrillic keycaps, but I honestly wish the "А" and "О" keys had little nubs to know where my pointer fingers go ("F" and "J" on QWERTY). Every other keyboard I've used has had that. Is there a way to buy those or recommend that to the creator??

Hi I think I'm a dumbass because I can't see the option to buy the full cyrillic set, I'm only getting "extras" and "numpad". How?????????????????????

Am I really going to have to be the one to point this out? Well, okay, here goes then. The nerdiest comment I've ever left on a product review. The Elvish is wrong. Or, at least, misleading. What they've done here is map each tengwa (glyph) to the key you have to press to get that tengwa when using one of Daniel Smith's Elvish fonts. So if you have one of those fonts installed, and you press, say, the "1" key, you will get the tengwa that's on that keycap. So far so good. But that character is not the tengwa for the numeral "1". It's actually the tengwa which (in most of Tolkien's languages that use the tengwar) maps to the sound "t". That's because the designers of those fonts back in the day decided to just map the keyboard's physical layout (on US keyboards anyway) to this table, which presents the tengwar in an order that makes sense to a linguist. This is important because if you buy this keyboard and then start typing on it while using one of the Elvish fonts, what you will get out won't be the tengwar transcription of what you're typing, it will just be complete gibberish. It also won't help you learn or memorize what tengwar correspond to which Latin letters or sounds. It will only help you if you already know the tengwar and just want help remembering which tengwa is on which key for those particular Elvish fonts. In fairness, I kind of understand why they did it this way, because there is no single correct mapping of tengwar to phonemes; it depends on whether you're writing Sindarin, or Quenya, or Nandorin, or something else completely. If you buy the version that doesn't have the Latin characters on each key, you could presumably just install the key caps in whatever positions make sense. But if you buy the version that has both, make sure you understand what you're actually getting. Incidentally, I have no idea what the text on the modifier keys says. It's at least vaguely intelligible, but it's neither English nor any Elvish language I'm familiar with. The shift key reads "ortho", caps lock reads "pedi kaun", and tab reads "sarv". It looks like it's using a mode intended for writing English. Maybe I'm transliterating it using the wrong mode; if anyone happens to see this who knows what the intent was here, I'd love to know!

I hadn't until after I posted that. Seems to corroborate my guesses as to motivation, though I'm perplexed by the claim that it's using the mode of Beleriand, since it very clearly isn't. (The mode of Beleriand uses tengwar for vowel sounds, but the mode used on the key caps uses tehtar like every other mode.) I can sympathize with the designer's dilemma here. I guess it comes down to intent. If your intent is to type in the tengwar using one of those specific fonts (as opposed, say, to one of the fonts that maps the tengwar to a Unicode private use area), then this is great. If your intent is to learn the tengwar by typing on a keyboard that has tengwar printed on the keys, it's not.
