Will there be any vendor for NA/Asia?
There will not. The board will only be sold through Keebwerk.

Would 100% be in board for a seamless polycarbonate verison. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!
Considering the interest we've seen so far for PC we'll probably add that as an option!
OOF PLEASE ADD DYED POLYCARB I WILL LITERALLY KISS YOU

I'm in.

Edit: I'm not a fan of the Chinese characters on the weight. It seems kinda random. But I'm in either way.

I guess it's fine if you can't read Chinese..

The characters on the bottom are the name of the board haha but if people don't like the writing I might consider removing it and only sticking with the logo. Thank you for the feedback!

I could go either way for text or no text, but I'd probably lean towards no text for the sake of symmetry

That particular one will probably not be an option for the GB, however after the sale we'll probably release the plate files so you can cut any plate you want.

Please consider adding support for alternate layouts like a 2.25u left space with 1u Fn, full length right shift in addition to the split right shift, and split backspace.

If you could make the layout about as identical to the Wonderland PCB by Maartenwut, that would be ideal. As long as I can put stabilizers under both spacebars.

Please please please do polycarb. I'm dying to find a solid Alice clone in PC.

PC plate as well would be fantastic.

Any foam options for between plate and PCB and/or underneath PCB would be amazing additions.

Hope this does well and is super successful!

+1. I also strongly prefer 2.25 + 1 for left space, full right shift and PC plate.

All the layout options you mentioned are actually supported! We will make sure to post a layout picture in the next days so you can see it. As far as polycarb goes it's still being considered, the results of the poll will help as well. It's not an easy material to work with at all and it will take quite a bit of work to come out nice but in the end if the demand is high enough we'll add it. It's much simpler to do it for plates though so it will probably be a plate option. As far as custom foam goes we are exploring that avenue since we also believe it would be a nice addition. And finally thank you for your support!

Nope you're not blind, however more renders have been added today to showcase the side profile a bit more!

If there is a chance you might wanna seek suggestion, I think the simpler the engraving on the weight will make it look better and cleaner :D

Thank you for the feedback! Seems that other people think so as well so the text on will probably be removed for the sake of making it look cleaner.

Another vote for no text on the weight but I'd be fine with either. What type(s) of finishing and materials will be offered for the bottom weight?

Will definitely be in for one :thumb:.

I'm assuming the red underglow on in the renders is only there to show off the curve - any consideration for underglow since PC is being considered?

Actually it's not underglow, it's just a very vibrant red version of the bottom piece. But in general underglow won't be supported.

I will ask this again in case you missed my previous post. Would it be possible to have the tgr alice chin or are you committed to the more pointy, angular chin?

Iv really liked some previous keyboards with script engravings. Makes them look really elegant and luxurious which i think would match this keyboard perfectly.

I did a lil photoshop of the brass weight with 'Nasu' in a script font and matching engraving on the front. Of course you would have to fill the front engraving yourself. Its a super quick photoshop and was really roughly done but i think it would look really damn good given some more time selecting fonts etc..

Is this something you could consider making if enough people are interested?  ;D ;D ;D

Well this is an IC so nothing is really final but we feel like the chin looks nice how it is right now, however if people disagree and want a rounder chin maybe we can work on it.

Looks amazing! However we will probably keep the top simple (as in no engravings or logos). We might change the weight to text only though depending on feedback. As far as the dark red goes It will be decided this week. We will sort through the color IC answers and decide on colors based on that (although dark red looks to be one of the favorites so far).
