This looks amazing and I will most likely go in.

Does the base kit come in a unique sleeve with original art? Or is it going to be a generic sleeve? Thanks

November? Usually i try to let every vendor know that they should close it down on the final day 23:59 their local time zone. So November 1st 23:59 - but syncing a closure across all vendors is always difficult and some keep it open for an extra day or so by mistake. My recommendation is to not wait until the final hours.  :))

This looks amazing and I will most likely go in.

It'll feature a custom sleeve! Design is yet TBD - but likely a very scaled down minimalistic sleeve like for nines.

Only thing holding me back is the $258.83 for the kits I want plus CA taxes...

Hey! There were plans for a deskmat, but ultimately I decided against it because I feel like there are so many great deskmats out there and I had no final design I was happy with. Thank you!

Screw those un-optional accented keys in the 40% kit.

How the heck has forced accent become a thing? That's both fugly and nnoying.

Hey man, sorry to hear that you feel that way. :/

I'm not so sure if forced accenting has become a thing, but in the case of firefly it was a design decision on my part. I was aware that it will not be for everyone and that scenarios such as this one will occur, but this was the way I envisioned this set. It may sound very stubborn, I know. deaccent being the child kit that is doing the best speaks on how there might be more people sharing your feelings on the matter.

Thank you for taking the time to give your thoughts and feedback!

I don't understand being so angry that something doesn't exactly cater to you. I've seen tons of keycaps that don't appeal to me for various reasons, I don't feel the need to berate the people running it.

Does anyone know what the keyboard in the render at the top is, with the gold icon in the top right?

the keyboard is tgr910, one of the most beautiful keyboard ever, and if you looking at right now at market price, it's really expensive. I also understand why he was getting mad because of accents key. I actually planned to buy a kit but since the accents key not belong to base, i end up with camping and cafe. these gave me more option in their base kit with the price,

Thanks!

I can understand being turned off by the accents, but I think the reaction was way out of line. It's one thing to go "I wish this didn't have accents" but another to go "Screw those un-optional accented keys in the 40% kit.

Tone aside, I don't quite follow this complaint.  I'm looking at the 40s kit, and I don't see any accent-color keys.  Those are all in the (de)accent kit.  What am I missing?  Is he talking about the legend color on the tabs?

He means the legend color, it was the original way for me to accent the set. It is okay to have an opinion on it, I don't mind. ❤️

Thank you! 🙏

It's not doing too bad, it's doing its own thing among all these titans running simultaneously. Base should make it just fine, but childkits besides deaccent will need to pick up moving forwards.  I'll see what I can do towards that. :)

yeah that's sad if this gmk could not hit moq, it looks very fantastic. i think if the accent add to the base, the moq is just a number. this month has too much gmk release, while November only a few.

November has Alter Terra Sparta Ursa, analog dreams?, ascii, is delta still on?, likely yugo, shark bait, bingsu held over from the mid October start. KAT eternal?
Im probably plus or minus one, but that would tie one of the busiest months of all time. Dracula and Camping are monsters, though.

Well I think most sets running now can be considered the next big thing as well, really good stuff coming out!

 That said, firefly is different and not everyone understands my design i think, maybe that's why? About 60-70% of people buying base are also buying the deaccent kit which inherently kills my original design. It's ok, though, I like to offer options and love seeing people interested regardless of their personal take and preference on firefly! :)

What I like about the set is that it's very monotone all around and then the legends offer the splash of colour and kind of stand out, like the fireflies in the night that they're supposed to be! While I don't think that the NorDeUK set will see the light of day I hope I can at least get my hands on a base kit.
