+1 for a Deep blue/Navy colour, but I'm sold regardless. The 65% + Numpad is exactly what I've been looking for, the fact its a southpaw makes it 100x better!

Wanted to keep it simple, so only two color options I'm going to offer are going to be black and white.

DISCORD -> https://www.discord.gg/tpkYtVG

Hey everyone! Sorry for disappearing off the face of the planet for a while;

The factory has concluded the production of the first prototype. Here are some pictures (they are also in the second post of this IC for organization)


I apologize for this one being upside down. 



Some pictures of the bottom profile, featuring the big, clean brass weight on the bottom.

I will likely be building this one on my own stream once PCBs come in. Keep an eye out on the discord for notifications/exciting news!

And again, thanks to everyone so far who has supported me.

Nope, sorry. Goal was to have a very clean back with basically no branding. The only thing I might put on the back would be a small engraving of my brand's name.

This will release to GB after the second prototype (ewhite) gets built.

Looks good!! That layout is so nice

Prototype has arrived at my house. Here are a couple pics.

https://imgur.com/a/aFnwSYJ

I've got a full writeup in the updates channel of my dicsord, but a tl;dr is that I am very happy with the quality but need to do a couple changes regarding the screws. Also may change the o-ring burger mount to a simple top mount. Please join the discord if you'd like more information.

I am targetting $400 + ship/tax, but this is an early estimate and is subject to change up/down.

Love the layout! +1 for e-white :)

As long as the e-white prototype is up to my standards, e-white is definitely in at this point :)

Looks great! Can't wait for more information about ETA for GP. I really enjoy the spacing for the arrows, along with the southpaw.

Got a rough time line for the reveal, just trying to save up finances for it!

Thanks to everyone!

As to a rough timeline, it's still "once second prototype is complete". I am still waiting for PCBs to finish, shipping right now has been hit hard by coronavirus, so there really isn't an ETA on that either. Expect at least two more months before a GB.

Awesome, any size is fine.. having a split-spacebar and programming one of the keys as a function keyallows for soo many options!

Mystic Works End of August Update

Wyvern Completion:
- I am finalizing case data for a second prototype. Main changes that will need to be made are the mounting for the weight to make it more solid (it flexes a little bit if it , and changes to how the cable is routed inside the case (pending PCB arrival)}
- PCB is complete, QMK/VIA implementations are close to/nearing completion. Maarten tells me that there is one small issue with the PCB but it has already been fixed for production files. I do not think I will be supporting split space bars on either PCB nor plate. I would have to deal with logistically helping people with obtaining new plate files, incorrect plates, and it would add more complexity and room for error on top of the already very complex PCB due to the many numpad options.
- I am ready to build the prototype once PCB arrives.

Timeline Updates:
- Prototypes/PCB are on track for late September GB, but still depends on timing of prototype 2 as well as how early I can send it to someone to build. Expect a GB between September and October.  Delivery at the most optimistic will be 3-4 months later, but expect delays as usual. MOQ of 150, limit of 300 ish, although I'm willing to bend on the limits if they really are surpassed.

Logistical Information:
- I will likely take over shipping/fulfillment for all international shipments as well as those heading to the USA. I have a vendor for Canada, but I still need to finalize some things so it's not official yet.
- If you live in a USA state that is NOT CA you will not have to pay taxes, only shipping. People who live in CA will have to pay state/local taxes.
- If you live in an international country, you will have to pay duties/VAT/customs fees yourself. Only the cost of the board needs to be paid to me.
- The reason for this is to simplify my logistics as well as allowing me to ensure the level of QC that I want.

Also, price has been updated; likely will go for $385 + ship/tax/duties (down from 400) for a black unit with any plate; e-white will be a couple dollars on top. Extra plates/PCBs will be available.

As always I apologize for the large delays recently, which has pushed back a groupbuy by two months. Unfortunately, I can't really do anything about it, and I appreciate everyone's patience in allowing me time to get everything finalized and finished. Hopefully, the board will be worth the wait! :)

Nice! Thanks for the update! I'm assuming you're also in CA which is why taxes will be charged if we're in CA. If you were also in the SF Bay Area, could you offer like some sort of pick up option to save on shipping fees and time?
