Love the base and spacbar, can't wait to see what other concepts you come up with.

Submitted a form but thought I'd mention it here:

How would you feel about having more novelties which relate to viking combat? I personally would have to have a selection of novelties for things like weapons (swords, axe, bow etc.) a shield, a helmet. The novelties for the gods are great. I think that would be pretty cool.

Also, one last thing: This may get hated on...but I personally love sublegends. I think having a set with Latin Alphas and Rune sublegends would be sick! Please consider it as an add on...or even the base set if popular enough!

Hope you'll consider the suggestions and love the colour scheme personally, I reallt hope it goes through to GB.

I am considering adding a few more novelties including weapons of some sort. As for my response for the Rune alphas/sublegends. Since this is GMK they would have to make new molds for each sublegend which would be incredibly expensive. I would also have to go in and design them from the ground up to avoid any licensing/copyright issues. Now I am not opposed to it completely but a lot more work needs to be done before I go all in on the idea. Based on the responses in my IC form I'll look into it. Thank you!

Awesome looking forward to seeing the new novelties. Ah I understand. I would be interested in paying more for them as it'll make it a truly unique set, but understand if it is not feasible! Appreciate the reply.

It's recommended to use Imgur (or another image hosting service of your choice; Imgur has some limitations) rather than upload images directly to Geekhack. It makes the browsing experience better on both desktop and mobile (Tapatalk).

Suggestions for the updated base kit:
  • Change second R4 1u Ctrl to Alt — one of each is required.
  • Change Prt Sc to Print — looks cleaner.
  • Change R3 1u #~ to \|.
  • Change R4 1u <>| to <> (remove sublegend).
  • Remove R4 1u \| — only one R4 ISO key is needed.
  • Add R3 Pg Up, R4 Pg Dn — extended 65%/75% support for some popular layouts.
  • Add R4 1.75u Shift — required for many different layouts, a must.
  • Add mod-colored R2 1.5u \| — alternative to regular \|, similar to mod-colored `~.
  • (optional) Change Scroll↲Lock to Scroll or Lock, and Num↲Lock to Num — looks cleaner.

Yeah I would for sure be interested in a RAMA collab. From what I have heard you need a full list of vendors before they work with you. But I will definitely try to make that happen!

I see 1.25u, 1.5u, 2u, and an extra 2.25u, but no 1.75u.

Oh man, I need to be pretty conscious with my wallet these days but for the right price I'd jump on these for sure. One of my favorite themes for sure and I love the colors. I'd likely rock it with the grey spacebar and green return, personally. Great work here.

As it looks in the renders, love the colour combo in this set.

I understand the complexity of going by rgb images on a monitor, however, I have a few question marks on whether the RAL colours are quoted/rendered correctly?
  • 9004 & 7040 looks warmer than the actual colour?
  • Is the accent colour meant to be RAL 60 50 10? Saturation looks light

Both are in the works, when those are finished and the IC is a bit more polished I'll make a post on reddit to drive more people to this thread fill out a form deciding between the alphas vs subs.

To be honest I'm not sure yet. The google form I posted has had a 80/20 split between not having ortho versus having it. It was 138 who said no to ortho/40s and 31 that said yes. Once I get the Runic alpha renders, I'm going to post on Reddit to hopefully drive more people to fill out the form so I can get a better idea.

The fact that you rendered the Isometria in isometric projection is honestly an amazing play on words.
Pretty set, I really like both the colors and the fact that you offer a NorDe set (well, would be kinda odd not to include scandinavian layouts in a scandinavian themed set^^).

Best of luck with the IC, and I hope to see this in GB soon  :thumb:

I'd really avoid using the valknut since it's so associated with nazis. Sad, but true.

Would it even be legal for GMK to produce that in Germany? "Hate symbol".

Yeah, we can try to reclaim it as a normal symbol but come on.. is this the time and place? Same as like the swastika isn't inherently a nazi symbol but that's what people associate it with.

Otherwise you might as well throw in the Odal rune and everything...

Great otherwise. I'd change / to ÷ on the numpad, especially since that's the symbol used in the Nordics.

And personally I don't think a down arrow for Caps Lock makes any sense. That would be like the symbol for "Lower Case Lock". But that seems to be only me. Text would be more in line with what's traditionally used on Caps Lock in the Nordic countries (the rest of the modifiers are "traditional" so having just Caps Lock be the odd one out seems like a missed opportunity). Or this:

You bring up a good point. I had some premonitions about including it but I thought that since this is a Norse themed set with symbols representing their beliefs/culture that it would not be taken out of context in that way. I'll axe it, pun intended, and replace with a different novelty. Also if you take a look at GMK Icon mods the caps lock is typically a downwards arrow, therefore I included it in my set. Thanks for the feedback!

As far as I know, all modern PCBs with 6u space (1800, 66-key, 60% etc.) support at least centered stem, but not all of them support off-centered stem. The reverse is true on OG 1800 Cherry PCBs, but probably not much else. Ideally the kit would include both 6u options, but if there's only room for one, I think centered stem is better.

Down arrow Caps Lock is a good choice, not because it makes any sense (spoiler: it doesn't), but because it's a versatile, fairly generic-looking icon that can even work as Fn or Ctrl in a pinch.


Great otherwise. I'd change / to ÷ on the numpad, especially since that's the symbol used in the Nordics.

Don't forget to also change * to × in this case.
