Shut up and take my money!

In all seriousness, so glad to see this come to fruition after seeing all the hard work go into it. This is gonna be the best IC of the week no doubt. GLWIC!

This is looking pretty good! The icon mods seem misaligned and a lot of the novelties leave a bit to be desired, but it seems like it's heading in the right direction. I like the colour palette and sublegends, too

I am very proud of the work Afresh and I put in on this set. The Cthulhu Mythos has always been a source of creative story telling for me. It was very fun reinterpreting this as a keyset. I cannot wait to see this on my own keyboard and I hope there are many others who will be excited to see it on theirs.
Title: Please rewrite it to Title text instead all capital letters, thanks.

I'd somehow missed the deskmat. Fun!

Easily my most anticipated GMK set so far this year, and an instant purchase for me.

I think both the sublegends and novs are a must, so I'm on the page of keeping the subs in the base kit, personally.

Post by: nvh2092 on Tue, 01 June 2021, 09:08:04
Please consider adding a R3 pipe key to base kit so it can also support US-ISO. Also, having accent space bars in the space bars kit will give people more reason to buy it.

Looks great. Can you add a section explaining what the sublegends are? GLWIC!

The University of Arkham, Massachusetts has studied the scant relics and writings that reference this lost city and its race of elder beings. Among those are the Unaussprechlichen Kulten by Von Junst and the unspeakable work by Abdul Alhazred both kept in the forbidden vaults at Arkham University. This collection of hieroglyphs represents the sum total of our understanding of the R'hylian language. It is our hope that by providing these symbols to the general public we may one day unlock the knowledge hidden deep within the vaults of the lost city of R'lyeh.


"The nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh…was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults."  - HP Lovecraft.

Post by: actress on Tue, 01 June 2021, 16:17:32
Nice colours!
I'm usually not very into novelties but these are great!
Thank you for ISO novelty.

Here's what I'd personally like to change:
text + icon mods.
cutting numpad from base to make it cheaper.
norde kit
more/different deskmats. The one you currently suggest is too similar to many already out there.
Ignore me if I'm speaking nonsense.  ^-^

Nautilus Nightmares wasn't a color matching error, but a conscience decision Zambu made to change the colors AFAIK. Although either way I do agree, please be extra vigilant with the color matching. Love this colorway & would love to see it finally come to life!

Insane set, will have to put off buying others to make sure I can cop this one. :) I love the image of the lighthouse shining on C'thulu on your header but am a little bit confused why it was changed for the novelties. To me it looks a bit like a unicorn horn instead of a lighthouse shine. Keep up the good work!  :thumb:

Post by: IOVERCALLHISTIOCYTES on Tue, 01 June 2021, 19:57:31
I dont think Nautilus nightmares had color standards posted from the initial interest check in Dec 2018 through GB close. Given the color standards here, i think this is a different scenario.

3 custom colors plus the 4th color sublegend on a fairly big base kit is gonna be 155 or 160 at 250 MOQ. if 500 MOQ+... whatever. If this goes to Kono at 250 MOQ...cut the base kit down and at least get it to 149.99

love this! just a bit worried since the novelties look a bit too complicated, I mean they look cool, but is gmk able to recreate that? also since there are more than 2 colors, which would be uv printed and which is doubleshot?

hope the design that stays after the uv printing eventually rubs off looks as cool as the original novelties!

Yes the colors did change over few months we've been working on this set, since we wanted to make sure that everything is in place to have smooth color matching.

This looks great and I'll definitely join the group buy! I'd love it if there was a full 'Innsmouth Look" option, dropping the Latin alphas and going with the other script for legends, symbols for mods, etc. Either way though, this looks really good!

Title: Re: [IC] GMK TERROR BELOW
Post by: Mazayiz on Wed, 02 June 2021, 15:47:31
This is set is wonderful and will be keeping my eye on it waiting for the set to drop in the future!

My 2 cents would be on 2 items.

1. I would love to see banner/header of the Lighthouse lighting up cthulhu be made into a deskmat. I like the pattern in the current deskmat design but would love the option to get a non-patterned version deskmat. The banner seems to be rectangular in shape already like the deskmat and is a good start. I would suggest rounding off the sharp lines that make Cthulhu outline into something smoother to make him seem more "tentacle-y"

2. Also is there a possibility of more novelties? Such novelties can be outlines of other elder gods or outer gods (if not other iconography or objects) in the mythos and can possibly fill up and entire R1 to replace the F-row keys for example. There should be enough gods in the original Lovecraft works to round this list. Hastur, Yog-sothoth, Nyarlathotep and Azathoth to name a few. Hastur in particular even predating Lovecraft. Hastur could be an outline of a hooded person, nyarlathotep could be humanoid with an elongated head, etc. Also the detail may be too fine but it would great to see a necronomicon sigil(however I don't know if the sigil requires permission for use).

Either way I have looking for a lovecraftian set for a while and look very much to supporting this set when it drops.

I love this set as ****!

But would it be possible to get an AZERTY option for this? Would that be an expensive upgrade? Or just the demand is not high enough to even consider it? Am I the only one in that situation?

Lots of questions but I think it deserves just one answer.  ;)

Great work so far. I love what I see and GLWIC .

Beautiful deskmat, love continuation of the theme brought into the seigaiha pattern.
Unique sub-legends work really well, though I can't help but feel like they could be used in the alternate alphas kit rather than incorporated into the base,

Definitely looking forward to hearing more from this set! GLWIC

2. There aren't plans to make more novelties at the moment, set revolves around Cthulhu only and we want it to stay like that also from hundreds of responses so far it seems that people enjoy this theme a lot.

Also I updated the IC FORM (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1VGg9J32XhBoZyLorla_R-vjTooLDj1skCeEn3X9EM_k/edit) and now you guys can vote if you would like to see basekit with or without sublegends.

Do you plan to offer a full base kit with alphas without sublegends?
I hope you don't expect us to buy the base kit and pay more for the alpha kit as well...

Hey!
Thank you very much! On IC form you have an option to select what version would you like to see in final version. Right now 68,5% of people would disagree with you and they want runes in basekit. If I'll have more votes I might consider running 2 basekits. We will see.

1. I look forward to the second deskmat and can't wait to see it!

2. I understand that completely. I always just try to push in a few more novelties if possible.

Another vote for r'lyehian subs on the base kit. Hope to see some artisan collabs if at all possible as well! Maybe Kolkrabba (archetype) or capthulhu (key capital)!?
Either way, best of luck with the IC/GB and I will definitely be supporting it!

Would you consider adding two 1.5u OS/super keys and a second 1u alt key? This would add support for macOS HHKB and 7u users. Would love to see it in the base kit, but even a separate kit would do!

Please submit that to IC form if you haven't already. The kitting will probably get changed after enough feedback is gathered.

I agree. We are working to ensure that the colors chosen for the deskmat, will match the colors of the set. The Ocean and sky with have a subtle gradation from very dark green to dark green. I will be working with our manufacturer to ensure the colors look good, and tell the story.

I have a feedback regarding the 2 R4 1u novelties. These are duplication of R4 1.25 and 1.5u so they are not unique. Also, there are 2 1u novelties for R2 and R3 which are quite redundant. I recommend putting these 2 R2/R3 1u to R1 and R4 respectively and removing the 2 duplicated R4 1u novelties. I attach a paint file to this comment so you can see my suggestion.

Right now the vote is split 70/30 so I believe we might just add another non sub-legends basekit but at the moment it's hard to say. Also, I should be ready to announce vendors this week.

If you are asking if I will color match with GMK before GB the answer is no. I will do it after as most sets do, I don't see any problems when it comes to getting these colors right and I doubt the "Nautilus Nightmares situation" that people are afraid of, happened because colors were too hard to match. To get confirmation of what exactly happened you would need to talk to Zambumon.

The design concept is amazing and the colors are great! Some thoughts:

Not a fan of the UV-printed sublegends.
The novelty enter key does look a bit like a unicorn horn, as someone else mentioned. The Cthulhu-world-eating also is a bit busy for a 1.25u key; I'd love to see the Elder Signs on 1.25u keys.
Why the mixed icon/text mods?

This looks great and I'll definitely join the group buy! I'd love it if there was a full 'Innsmouth Look" option, dropping the Latin alphas and going with the other script for legends, symbols for mods, etc. Either way though, this looks really good!


Full R'hylian basekit would be an instant buy for me even at $200. Even just R'hylian mono legend alphas would be an instant buy.

Post by: hottrout on Fri, 25 June 2021, 05:15:27
I said all along with Naut that it should be darker.  Many sets suffer from being too light in colour once produced.  I also notice that lots of sets are rendered in what looks like a no light situation which then does not truly reflect the actual colour.  I think this set should also be a little darker, it is a great set but please be cautious and check the samples, if they look light go again.  Don't make the mistake of the Nautilus Nightmares set.

100% cop as mentioned on instagram already.
please consider adding an extra Tab button in the latin alpha kit, so we can cover 2 keyboards with base+latin. If I didn't make sense try checking out what GMK Stargaze or Houhai did.

edit: if you're looking to further reduce the price, consider removing the four UK-ISO specific buttons (R1 , 2", , R3 @') and only keep the terminal ISO with Enters, R3 #~ and R4 \| - or even better change these two for R3 \| and R4 <>.
There's so many EU countries in this hobby by now that, unless you're running a NorDeUk kit, there is no reason to favor a specific regional layout. Keep it standard for everyone.

I'm personally not a fan of mixed text and icon legends, but that's not a dealbreaker.
However this set is useless to me without 40's compatibility.

Please consider adding at least 3-key physical 40's compat to base (R2 1.75u Backspace, R3 1.25u Tab, R3 1.5u Enter)

Having UK-ISO in base is pretty much a 100% cop from me. It's extremely hard to justify getting a £50/60+ addon kit for 6 keys at most. and Terminal ISO only would make it worthless personally.

Adding more keys to the basekit makes it more expensive. So supporting everything isn't an option. Also I believe in that base you can find keys that will work in the place of what you are asking (1.5u and 1u keys).

May I ask how much more the basekit would have cost with those 3 keys added? Working on getting them included with more base and extension kits from different designers and coming armed with that knowledge would be helpful.

Its not so much that the cost is a ton, but it is up to the designer to choose combability to layouts that they think will be profitable (or that they like to use). There's a few other layouts that fall into this category: 3 key 40s, split backspace, 2u shift, r3/r4 pg up and pg dn. Hell, even NumPad. Supporting ALL these layouts is expensive, so GMK designers need to follow their own path some and support the layouts that they think will be most successful. More recently, 3 key 40s has been raising in popularity while HHKB has gone down. Another solution some designers will follow will be to cut back on accents.

Physical HHKB is particularly tough because a lot of HHKBers are fine without physical support. Or will buy a Nov kit.

Any chance of adding those two 1.5u OS/super keys and a second 1u alt key? This would add support for macOS HHKB and 7u users. Would love to see it in the base kit, but even a separate kit would do!

There will be no more changes done to the kitting. Sorry

Also changing kitting so close to gb is sadly not an option since contacting manufacturer can take some time.

That's really disappointing. Why did you elect not to add them when the moulds already exist?

Edit: I have no idea how I only quoted you and never responded. What I wanted to say is that changing the kitting so late into the IC is impossible because of the time it takes to get quotes etc.

Fair enough on time! Same question still: May I ask how much more the basekit would have cost with those 3 keys added? Working on getting them included with more base and extension kits from different designers and coming armed with that knowledge would be helpful.

Sorry but I can't tell you what's written in private messages between vendors and manufacturer.
