[CLOSED] GMK Nightshade - Waiting for final numbers
« on: Thu, 11 February 2021, 17:56:50 »

It is night, the wind blows through the leaves and howls in the distance, the air carries an unnatural chill. A small house sits among the trees, weathered by the centuries, unkempt as if nothing had lived there in years. Shattered windows draped in tattered cloth blowing in the wind. Inside, a black cauldron sits filled with a purple potion, papers strewn about on the floor. The room is dark, lit only by the moon light which enters through the windows and the glow of the potion colors the room a faint purple. The house is quiet, and tension fills the air.

The floor creaks and sways as the house closes in, darkness takes over. A faint murmur can be heard in the distance, growing ever closer. Soon they surround you, voices coming from all directions. Paralyzed, you watch as mist fills the air. In front of you a pair of eyes open up as the voices stop. Silence. It slowly smiles at you, a malicious grin made of purple flames dancing in the darkness. She has awakened. Slow footsteps can be heard from behind, something is coming but you canít move, you canít escape. You feel weak, your vision blurring as she gets closer, her presence draining you of energy. As you lose consciousness, all you hear is the faint crackling of the flames. No longer able to breath you fall to the ground, she is standing over you. Your heart stops, and darkness takes over.

Btw EU vendor added, and talking about the accent ISO but nothing set in stone atm. As for the extra B, that is there because you can actually do alice with the basekit if you use shifts as spacebars.

didn't see any color codes listed here or the IC. are custom colors being used?
that being said, i'll likely still be in regardless.

Yes all custom colors but decided to not share just to make the clone manus work a smidge harder when they inevitably clone this like they did night runner...

Nice.

The *only* gripe (for me) is 1.5 code key wanted with second a 1u alt key.

Probably due to render lighting, a lot of these dark sets that aren't pure black will look a lot brighter in fluorescent or white LED lighting that people have in their offices.

This is what I imagine it will look like in my office, taken from Space Cables' IG



Amazing looking set, pretty much this one and Dracula will be my two main ones I rotate on a black TKL.

Hi! Love this set and have been anxiously awaiting the group buy. However, it seems that the european store (candykeys) does not have the cable available. Will this be added at a later date or am I out of luck there?

GMK no longer allows color matching prior to the order being placed (changed over a year ago).

I updated the main post with more neutral lighting renders (was waiting on them) so hopefully that helps!

I am not sure, they might not be selling it? I would ask them directly because I am not 100% sure.

On candykeys they mention an ISO-Enter key in accent color. Can you confirm this?

Asked them, for anyone else looking for the cable; The reply said they would check it out and add it if possible. It has been a couple of days now and no further word so I am assuming the cable will not be added for sale in the EU. A pity but at least we do get the deskmats :)

I also asked the UK vendor on their Discord. They said they'd try to arrange with Spacecables, but haven't heard anything back yet...
I guess I'll just have to suck up the shipping and import fees  D:

EDIT: Jae from the UK Vendor said he doesn't think he'll offer the cable.
