This kit with the sublegends is beautiful, I really hope it gets made, it's not too crowded at all, the sizing for the text is perfect!

Thank you! I've been working super hard on it. Check back between Monday and Wednesday, I'll try to have much the IC updated by then. Trying to get done some more done today before I head into work.

I love the mono legends too. Way more than the subs IMO but I gotta put up both for now because they're equally requested. Maybe some new renders will help people decide on one or the other.

I'm starting to appreciate the legends more and more. Will likely also pick up the Latin Alphas for variety. Quick question though - any chance we'll get CMD, Option keys for mac? This is the set I'm most looking forward to this year. Thanks for putting so much effort into it.

Runic Sub legends look really good as well as mono. They fit the set and make it actually feel like an old norse keycap set unlike mono latin.

Lmao. Its literally just human error. The base kit I downloaded from GTRX didn't have certain icons in certain places so I replaced them myself.

If base kit does become mono legend (which I hope) please consider full icon mods. I think the latin mod text would clash with the runes.

Sweet! I know designers are choosing either or so I'm glad you are using og ones. I would recommend getting the ones you plan using on final renders. Looking forward to the set! The colors are looking great :thumb:

Hey I love the idea you are going for with the novelties, but have a slight issue with the hammer. To me, it doesn't seem extremely obvious that the hammer is supposed to be a hammer.

I really like the little twisty line engraving on the side of the axe blade,

I think it makes the axe stand out as very "Viking", but I think the hammer isn't quite hitting the same note. A suggestion could be to make some little sparks of electricity emanate from the hammer, letting us know "hey this this Thor's hammer". This could definately make the cap cluttered so the exact implementation of how to make it more "Viking" could be anything. I am 100% in on this keyset due to the Rune sublegends/alphas though  :D

The hammer is spot on....... The axe is not a viking axe.

New to the keeb world and this one might be my first (or at least one of the first, my poor wallet...) group buy :D.

Wanted to ask one thing though. I really like the colorway, but unfortunately I seem to be in the minority that is not keen on the runic alphas (either variant). I see the plan is to still have latin alphas sold as a separate kit. Is it the case that if not enough people order the latin alpha kit, they won't be made? If yes, is there some way for me to ensure that I either get the base kit + latin alphas or nothing? For example, wait until its confirmed that the latin alphas *are* going to get made before committing my money to the group buy? Is there going to be such a confirmation before the GB is over?

Typically the vendors will supply the designer with the numbers of sales for each kit throughout the GB stage and then the interest check usually gets updated with a graph. You could theoretically wait until the kits you want hit MoQ if you don't want the rune alphas. The base kit will most likely hit MoQ with enough interest but the Latin alphas may not because most people seem to be interested in the Runes. Once the GB starts I would just check this page as I will update it with the numbers as other designers have done.

You may know this already, but just in case... If you buy the Latin alphas and they miss MOQ and will not be made, you will get a full refund for that kit. It also shouldn't be a problem for any of the vendors to just cancel your whole order at that point, if desired.

This was one of my concerns. I don't think it would be possible. MoQ is already going to be quite high because of the new molds and NorDe kits are already quite difficult to sell in the first place. Now that I think about it, it may just make sense to cut some of the keys with latin legends from the norde kit but still keep Æ, Ä, Ø, Ö, Å. That might be stupid but I'm just throwing ideas out there. Let me know if that makes sense.

I am very interested in the rune sub-legend alphas, along with the numpad kit. Depending on when this gets released (and how much money I have to spare at that time), I would even consider springing for the novelties, as well.

This is such a nice kit! And I just opened my wallet for minimal 2. Seems I may have to hurt it just a bit more  :)
Prefer the mono and think that's what makes sets like this more complete theme-wise.
I also agree the normal Norde legends sadly clash a bit.

As a Dane, this makes me go V E R Y   Y E S. I'm all for the rune alphas instead of the just sub-legends. Also, speaking of AC:V, the voice actor is a Dane called Magnus. Just like me! I need me that game, I just replayed AC: Rogue, Black Flag, Origins, Syndicate and Unity, and after finding out who the voice actor was, I don't think I've been this excited since GTA V.

You'd be surprised. But for anyone who cannot touch type: consider the Runic alphas an invitation to learn. You'll be glad for it.

I can touch type, albeit I am a slow typer, but personally I don't like sets where the base alphas are not intelligible on their own. If it's another kit, I'm all for it for the people that really like it. I lovee the runes as sub legends and I think they look better, but as I said in my other post, it's just my opinion.

That's good for you but some people just prefer the aesthetic of sublegends over mono.

Where did I critique anyone? I said he has his opinion and how I type is not a requirement. It wasn't sarcasm. Not seeing where I shot anyone down. Simply said I didn't understand why the mono was confusing to some. Which is ABOUT the mono legend set offered. And then even said I agreed fully with his opinion. Throughly confused... days ago might I add..
