Thank you from Potatoclack
“I really wanted to create a deep purple set that speaks to the community, and it ended up being a collaborative project on Geekhack. While I did coordinate things (and wow, I’ve learned a lot!), it’s something that a lot of keyboard enthusiasts created together, and I hope GMK Black Lotus can make the community proud.  Special shout out to: Fictiouz, Vigrith, and thesiscamper. We did it!”

The alpha color is completely black right? So I can use OG Spacekeys for Alice spacebars?

Potatobot confirmed this is GMK stock color CR so your space keys will work. I’d hoped for purply split bars but I am mostly just glad this is gonna run.

I was hoping for a minimalistic desk mat of a digitally glitched butterfly or so of the Accel World theme, but both mats are of MTG. The level of upset...

Nice to see this happening after being in IC for so long. It has to be the record holder for that :)

Just a bit of shame that some of thr bottom row novelties are not available in 1.5u as i won't be able to use the black lotus novelty in my tsangan layout.
Kind of a shame considering the black lotus is the topic of the set :( I guess there is no chance to change anything now.

Buy the spacebars kit and trade the purple bars for black ones. Go to mechmarket and ask, there's a lot of sets that use this color black. Originative used to sell them individually but they're out.

Just make sure you also don't need F1-F4, or F5-F8.

I'm so upset. It's been so long my taste have changed and I can't convince myself I need this anymore :( 
I think I fell in love with the old renders that looked more like N9 on the alphas. Dangit

Is the modifier kit likely dead? 
I gotta say, the lackluster effort on this gb is.. disappointing. There is no hiragana render, and the renders we do have are almost bad enough to turn me away after waiting patiently for this over a year. Shiny. Why shiny...

Then don't buy it. Really, no one is forcing you to. Also, what's wrong with the modifier kit?

So excited to see this come to fruition. First IC thread on Geekhack I was immediately attracted to in 2019, however when I realised it had been in IC since 2016, my hopes were low and I bought several other dark purple themed keycap sets (RIP wallet) to scratch that itch.

In for base and deskmat.
Doubtful if I will get novelties as I'm not the biggest MTG fan, and dislike the enter novelty key (the rest look great though).
I would've preferred a more elegant and subtle lotus icon instead of 'deathtouch' (It's just too edgy for me at my age)

Ive read this statement allot now. Good thing I didnt stop bugging vendors to make this happen  :thumb:

We've almost hit MOQ for the base kit and we still have 2 weeks to go. Novelties are already done and the black lotus mousepad is a big hit! Thanks everyone and keep safe  ;D
