This is such a great concept. Can't say I'll buy them unless I have a particular idea with what to do with them tho, the style is def distinctive! On the other hand, I've been looking for a deskmat and that church on fire one just jumped to the top of my list.

I do agree with some others that the legends are a little off in places - the misalignment is super clear between the G and H keys, for instance.

Thank you for your kind words. Overall the placement of 'g' and 'h' is by design aligned that way to avoid inconsistencies while adding the same look of alignment as uppercase letters. Thank you for your feedback!

Not like they would arrive in time for this Halloween, but I get your point and agree the GB should overlap the holiday at some point.

I have some test designs around such a WoB set, but need to get samples of a few different fonts to find one that won't come across as ultra scuffed once printed. And thematically it would have to be pretty close to this, so I was hoping Afresca could fit it in  ;D

Yeah hopefully we can do that in the future, so far red on black is the first version.

ISO Enter and Numpad Enter are the only icon mods while the rest of the mod use text only, not sure if it's deliberate or an oversight.

Add left-hand and right-hand of Baphomet please!
« Reply #73 on: Sat, 02 October 2021, 22:42:20 »
Huge missed opportunity not to have the left and right hands of Baphomet as novelty keys.

  276734-1 

This gesture by Baphomet is the "as above, so below" with huge significance for a variety of esoteric and occult schools of thought. Anybody who is sufficiently familiar with Western esotericists like Aleister Crowley would recognise these as symbolising the dichotomy between two complementary modes of magick, the left-hand path and right-hand path. The left-hand path is, very loosely speaking, about violating convention and order, embracing chaos, and destabilising hierarchies, whereas the right-hand path is about forming order out of instability, recreating conventions, and taming the chaotic.

They'd just make for absolutely fantastic raise/lower or pageup/pagedown or volume up/down or arrow keys, and would complement the goat-head novelty brilliantly.

Edit: I just made a silly mockup of what it could look like because I was bored. I'm sure you could come up with a much better illustration than this one, this was just quick and incredibly low-effort (and they should probably be R4 for raise/lower or something but you get the idea):

Please, the left hand path and right hand path idea from @oestrogen8r is such a good idea. And an R1 goat head! I would use it for sure on an alice board with the extra keys on the side!

Aw shucks, it was just 20-30 mins in Photoshop. I already had these pngs of the left- and right- hand floating around because I used to use them as emojis on Discord  :cool:

They were just so perfect here that I couldn't pass on the opportunity to suggest them x)
This kit is gonna have no trouble selling the novelties since the alphas themselves are already a novelty, and there are just so many things that would make for great novelties.

Thanks for considering the idea! Let me know if I can help at all. Big fan of this set!

I basically just recolorised the hand PNGs from above for my mockup, but I also found I had to tweak the right-hand a bit more to give it a bit clearer definition. Not sure whether you wanted to completely reillustrate them yourself from scratch or pilfer them from this classic illustration like I did, but this depiction of Baphomet due to Éliphas Lévi is entirely within the public domain so you could just do that too if you wanted.

"low effort" and makes a fantastic looking mockup that could absolutely pass for the original.

I also think some crosses would look sweet, even just as novelties if not as a full arrow set. Not sure how I feel about the idea of sideways crosses but I think a normal cross and an upturned cross would be neat. Basically my stance on this kit is just that I'd love to see more novelties in general involving cool real-world symbolism

After considering all the options and trying this and that, I won't add any new novelties to the kit. I can't seem to place them so they actually fit the theme. Thank you for your feedback anyway guys!

Ah well, thanks anyway Afresh! Big fan of your designs and taste in colourways.

Looking forward to see what you come up with next. Art, Terror Below, and this have all been solid bangers imo.
