[GB] GMK Ishtar - Samples Approved!
« on: Tue, 28 July 2020, 08:11:19 »
Ishtar is the goddess of beauty, good harvests, war, lust, discord, fertility and Venus in Mesopotamian Mythology/Sumerian Mythology/Babylonian Mythology, and one among the many mother goddesses whose power is derived from the Earth Mother. Said to be the most pampered, or rather, the most beloved goddess by the other deities.

Note: Regular version of the cable is also an option for the set, just wanted to show off this one :)

Nice to see a weeb set that doesn't have sublegends but not having another alpha set with hiragana or katakana is a bit disappointing imo

I'm conflicted: on one hand, I really like these combination of colors, but on the other, why is this so pricy?

I like the colors, but I'm kind of confused by the naming and the inspiration of this set. Ishtar is a Mesopotamian goddess, but your inspiration on your IC is from an anime? Some of your kit names are japanese, but your description on the GB page says nothing about the anime. The website also says nothing about the anime either. I'm probably going to get some flak for this post, but it would've been neat to give it unique names and some consistency.

Yes its based on the anime, but to not get into legal ramifications it's more of a "if you know, you know" type of thing.

Hey everyone. This was my first IC/GB and I certainly learned a lot from it. I'd like to thank everyone who supported me and this set, gave feedback on the IC, helped me with Ishtar or decided to take on Ishtar as a vendor. Without the community, this would have never been possible, so thank you. Without further ado, here are the final numbers:

Base - 663/250 - Hit MOQ week 2
Kuro - 134/100 - Hit MOQ week 4
Tengoku - 198/100 - Hit MOQ week 3
Novelties - 368/100 - Hit MOQ week 1
Deskmat - 392/20 - Hit MOQ day 1
Rama Keycap - 251/0 - No MOQ
Zeus Cable - 91/0 - No MOQ
