[CLOSED] GMK Night Runner - nearly 400 sets sold!!!!

Welcome to the night:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Inspired by those elite few who navigate the rooftops of a dystopian cyberpunk city,  GMK Night Runner aims to bring a little of the not-so-distant future to your set up.
The inky dark alpha base color represents the night sky, while the soft, dark blue used for the modifiers represents moon lit features, and the bright yellow legends represents the landscape of fluorescent signs and people running about the city and its skyline.
So without further adieu, GMK Night Runner.

Sorry, they were in the post but the images were broken due to two images being too high quality it seems so it broke the whole post...all custom colors.

Thank you so much! The CityScape mat is one of my favorite parts about this as well, OneCreativeMind really nailed it and I couldn't be happier.

   Extras and some proxies not included.

Where are you getting these numbers from? I'm a bit confused, on candykeys site it says that the numbers they have are the combined total for world wide sales. So if that's the case the base kit is only at 78 and all the other kits around 27.

You're right, my numbers have not been correct; thanks for catching this.  However, Candykeys' numbers aren't 100% accurate, either.  I will remove my erroneous graphs for now.  Once I get comprehensive numbers I'll start posting graphs again.  Sorry, everyone, for this mistake.

The first color samples are in my possession!!!

And from my first looks, they look like a perfect match (even the yellow), so I am very excited to see how this comes out and I hope y'all are as well. Bad camera, wish I could show how perfect they are in person but my old phone isn't good enough. :(

Love the cap set, love the mat!

Shame (for me at least) there's no Japenese/Korean/etc alpha set, as I think that would be awesome to kinda match the Novelties :)

10 other sets running this month tend to cannibalize each other. I don't think there's been this many sets running at once. Keysets usually receive a big surge at the end so I think this one will be fine.

No, Thank you for joining the buy!

Happy to see we are over 50% half way through, hopefully we can get to moq pretty easily from here!

Also same. One of the guys in my D&D group has been agitating for a Cyberpunk game. Need this set at the table to fit in with the vibe.

What does it mean in the OP below the USB cables when it says "And a special addition to be announced later." Is that in reference to the cables? If so, would that be available as a GB option? Or after the kit is released? I'm completely new to this, so excuse my ignorance.

The cables are available now, during the GB. Select from the Night Runner collection page.

That sentence is a reference to something not related to the cable...but will be made clear very soon.  ;)

Waiting for Candykeys to update their order numbers still, they haven't updated since the last graph was made, so it wouldn't be entirely accurate atm.

We are around 140 base kits (not including extras or candkeys orders since the 12th) sold atm, so we are doing pretty good still.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm excited even more now.

Hoping we get there. Maybe we will get a vendor to purchase the needed amount to reach MOQ.
