[IC] ePBT Maras - GB Live
« on: Mon, 20 September 2021, 14:13:46 »

The GB thread is now live.

GB has been cancelled. I am determined to make this set a reality as I trully love it, and I will revisit it in Q2-Q3 2022.

I've always been fascinated by Peru, it's landscape and its mysteries.

After taking you to the desert with Oasis and into space with my own spin of Hyperfuse, I am taking you with my fiance and I to Peru.

Fasten your seatbelt,  we are leaving soon! Welcome to the IC for







Let's get right into it, shall we?



I went for pretty standard kitting for those but feel free to let me know if I missed anything :)













The deskmat is really simple and represents the Nazca lines visible in the country, some are also present in the novelty kit, others are just for the deskmat. One of those has been made especially for the set, as an homage to the original Nazca lines, as it actually does not exist.




I am happy to say I am doing a collab with Asero Foundry and we will offer both a return and an escape key in the same color as the modifiers:

These Asero Foundry keys will be available from all local vendors, except for KBDFans who will unfortunately not run them.




GB Date: November 17th!






















For those that are interested, here are the colors I picked for the set. Samples have been asked and I'll make sure to get the before the GB.
As the name indicates, the main inspiration for the set comes from the Maras salt ponds which I've always been fascinated by; the accent kits are inspired by the reflects in those salt ponds. I hope you'll like them!

I might want to add Latin American Spanish support, either separately or as part of your international kit. The theme seems a bit incomplete without it.

Thank you guys for the messages :)

I didn't want to add unnecessary keys to the existing kits and wanted to stay fairly standard with kitting, but I will keep that in mind and have a look into making a separate kit for that :)

The 1800 support (or lack there-of) is an oversight and is being corrected as we speak. As far as the 40s kit go, I am open to feedback :)

I am looking into it right now, although it will most likely be a ES/LA only kit to go with the theme of the keyset.

In the meantime, here is the updated numpad kit with the two keys that were missing, sorry for that!

Good evening/morning/afternoon everyone,

As requested above and in PMs on reddit/Discord, I have created a Spanish/LA kit to complement the theme of the keyset - here is the Tilde kit:



If you see anything that is missing from that kit, please let me know!

I have also created a google form for you to share your thoughts on the set:

Cool set, has some nice shades of color.

Personally I would have liked to see basic alice support in base kit, since it's generally not that expensive to add like ePBT Origami did and you already have the extra B in the base kit.

Great looking set and I really like the colours! The novelty avocado is a nice touch!

I also think that it should be considered to support Alice layouts in the base kit. GLWIC!

Thanks for your messages, this is in the ToDo list as well. I'm going to add those spacebars to the Base kit and remove them from the spacebar kit (which will basically become a small "compatibility" kit for the layouts that need special or want to do split spacebars) :) Alice will be fully supported in the main one :)

I've checked the layout with my (ES) keyboard, and all of the needed keys seem to be there :)

Howdy everyone!

I'm back with some more renders and new kits - as mentioned earlier today, the base kit is now fully "Alice compatible" and I removed those keys from the spacebars kit :)

[IC] ePBT Maras - Azero Foundry collab & GB on November 17th!
« Reply #22 on: Mon, 15 November 2021, 04:21:37 »
Hello everyone!

Long time no talk - sorry for the radio silence :) I am happy to report this project is moving forward and the GB will open in just 2 days :D

I've been hard at work behind the scenes and I really wanted to do something special on top of the keysets so I am happy to say I am doing a collab with Asero Foundry and we will offer both a return and an escape key in the same color as the modifiers:

These Asero Foundry keys will be available from all local vendors, except for KBDFans who will unfortunately not run them.

Vendors are working on the prices and on setting up the GB pages for the keysets, here is the dream team:


Pricing will be announced here shortly; some vendors wanted to wait as much as possible to get the more accurate price because of exchange rates.

Mark your calendars cause this is coming soon!

Hello everyone,

I am sad to report that the GB for ePBT Maras is now cancelled. Orders were really low with one vendor selling no kit at all. I am grateful for all those who ordered and for the vendors that helped with this. I am 100% determined to make this happen at one point, maybe in Q2/Q3 2022, but now does not look like the time for it.

Ill reopen the IC Thread and lock this thread, feel free to comment there and let me know what you would like to see or what would make you order the set 😊
Have a good one and take care everybody!
