I showed my fiance the set and his main comment was that the red needed to be much brighter. He's more of a Diablo fanboy than I am so i'll take his word for it!

Hiya!
Don't worry, the red will be brighter than this. But it will be slightly different from OG red.

Is this going to be red on black or red on dark grey more like the original? I'd prefer it to be black and red but I understand that is harder technically and probably not as true to the original DCS set.

the target is charcoal-ish. it's a very-very dark grey. but not pitch black.

as for now. there's no plan for it. but with enough vote, we can add it to the list and then it's up to MOQ.

Yep, I'm going to do top red case bottom black case with red underglow
Pretty much my entire computer and desk setup is already under the color scheme too, all I need is a custom keeb with this set to finish it

Alright, I've spent the morning sketching up some vectors for possible novelties in illustrator and here's what I've managed to come up with.

The Lone Wanderer, taken from the Diablo 2 box art.


Diablo's face, taken from this Diablo 3 art.


A town portal, taken from the Diablo 2 sprite.


Alternatively, the town portal spell icon, taken from the Diablo 1 icon


An angel holding the health orb and a demon holding the mana orb, from the Diablo 2 interface


A health and mana potion based on the Diablo 3 health potion

I can provide SVG format files of any of these :)

Yeah, I agree. I am not totally happy with the D3 diablo face, but I'm going to consider these a proof of concept and I'm willing to put more time into redoing a legend by hand.

whoa, that's a fantastic! concept you got there.

we surely gonna need a potion novelties on Q. and townportal on T. i'll decide later which vector i'll use, mine or you. we'll probably use the diablo 2 one on town portal.
on diablo face, i think we can use that on.. enter? it's to show off more of his horns.

and i like that potion/health mana bar. i've planned it to use it on our set, with a lil bit different concept.

please be patient!

Just joined the Chiwi60 GB for a black case that I think this will look fantastic on, however the default layout uses 2x3u spacebars as seen here: http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/7b66929907ba44fdcd63eb4cc403418b

So could you add 2x 3u caps to the Spaces kit?  :thumb:

i'll try to ask the vendor if the addition of 2x 3u key will significantly change the price of the keyset a lot or not.

as for now, we are working on the typeset (for the dye-sub preparation) and the novelties. stay tuned!

This project is moving along rapidly I am happy and impressed.. and I think honestly think the 50 MOQ will be easy mode.. special if the price is in the 100 dollar range. I am so stocked for this set!!!! this is up there with God Speed as far as sets go. The Fact its Dye Subbed is exciting also. I know there a lot of limitations with dye sub but I still think dye sub key's look amazing.

I was always under the impression that you can't dyesub a lighter color onto a darker one, like a red on a black. So this "5 side dye-sub" process allows you to do that?

And I'll likely be interested in this set no matter what but I've always been more fond of the Sanctuary PBT dyesub colorway over the DCS set, but that's probably just me

maybe something in the same vein for a future run 🙂

In order to do something like red-on-black dye-sub, they take a red keycap, dye the four sides of it black and dye the top black except for where they want the legend, so you're left with that non-dyed red legend on an otherwise now black keycap.  Hence the name of 5 side dye-subbing.

I am highly interested if there will be some bottom row 1U and 1.5U keys available (add-on set?). I would love to put this on my Gamdias but it has a nonstandard bottom row of 1.5/1/1.5/6/1.5/1/1/1.5.

if you see it closer, pro kit have the keys that you need. there's some redundant key and won't cover the spacebar (the vendor doesn't have the mold for 6.5u spacebar), but it works.

I somehow completely missed that. The 6U spacebar would fit I think except that it's not off-center. Oh well, still interested regardless.

I'm not sure, I'll do some homework and find a set of symbols that look in the spirit of the set, I guess. For now, I guess katakana or greek subs are possibilities
