Tech accessory company Drop has released its newest collaboration, this time creating keyboards featuring two famed Lord of the Rings languages, Dwarvish and Elvish. If you’re looking to type in Quenya or in Khuzdul you’ll still have to download a font or two, but if you’re interested in the aesthetics, Drop has you covered.

The full keyboard will set you back nearly $200, but if you pre-order you’ll be able to take $30 off. There’s also options to just get the keycaps in either Dwarvish or Elvish, which are more reasonable. There’s also some accessories—Smaug-themed wrist rests and a the special resin keycaps shown above. Click through to see some highlights!

These are the really artisan keycaps, cast in resin and featuring the One Ring. They depict Lothlórien, Mount Doom, and the river Anduin—three places were the Ring journeyed over the course of the trilogy. I think what really gets me is the fact that the One Ring has its elvish clearly visible only in the Mount Doom keycap—a detail that many Lord of the Rings fans are sure to love.
