Core Kits

Base

Covers everything from TKL down to 60%, including UK ISO, Alice support, F13, and Mac bottom row swaps

Dalecarlian Runes

These are a late version of the runic script, having evolved from Elder Futhark to Younger Futhark to Medieval Runes to finally, these. They were in use in the Swedish province of Dalarna until the early 20th century and were mainly used to transcribe the Elfdalian language and to inscribe names and ownership marks on various objects. As such, it has been designed for full use with the Swedish ISO layout.

Love the colorway, the novelties, the deskmat and the artisan! I'm in! Now just to decide whether also to grab the Nomad 40s kit as I dont actually have a board planned for this...

Post by: Fredington on Tue, 22 June 2021, 10:38:36
Week 1 Update:

We are slightly over 50% to MOQ on the keycaps and about 34% to MOQ on the artisan. Some vendors have not reported. Overall, a pretty good start!

Nice thing with ePBT is : MOQ is only on base kit, no MOQ on child kits. So everything is produced or nothing is produced.

This isn't an official vendor statement but I'm not too worried about MOQ as we are over 80% funded. Dvorcol will be posting an update shortly.

Is it good ? I mean do you think it will achieve MOQ ?
This is the first group buy I join so I don't really know how to interpret the numbers. 🤣
(I know that only base kit (+ artisan and deskmat) has to achieve MOQ)

I have a question, why ePBT sets that went to GB after this are gonna be produced before? It's because they "signed the deal" and went to que before this set even that your GB was earlier than them?

Yeah lot of variables are in place to build the timeline (but

we must protect the sacred timeline
) like ePBT Be The One set has now ~1 month delay from kbdfans website. Let's hope supplies and Covid situation in China will be in a better and smoother path for this set ...
