They just released a new block of 50 additional Deluxe editions!

 

The voices in my head told me to pledge on it, otherwise they'll keep singing Despacito (they're such Bieber eldritch fanboys).

I'm down for a hard copy. I like to write notes in my cookbooks.  Hopefully this one won't require blood.

Any ichor is suitable as a blood replacement.

 

Unless your elder god is anemic. Then they'll need the extra iron. Quinoa and oatmeal just won't cut it.

LOL, today's update.

 

"

Tom, The Disembodied Voice here,  

We are at roughly 70 Hours left in the campaign, and I am really excited to get this book out to everyone. When we hit 70,000 I did a little happy dance in front of my desk and hit my hand.. Anyway,

Hope everyone likes the announcement from the previous Update #19... Give The Necronomnomnom as the perfect gift. Spread the Insanity... er the word. Be sure to tell your friends about the Kickstarter before it's too late. This book will not be offered at this price again. 

Sooooooooo......

Your copies of The Necronomnomnom will now be physically summoned into existence. At face value, (see what I did there?) we have amazing artwork, a collection of great recipes to tease and toy with your palate, drinks to quench your insatiable thirst, and the puns... Puns to rip a little more of your sanity away with each otherworldly page. Your sanity will be tested and your family and friends will question your sobbing and blathering when they attempt to talk with you (never mind the awkward questions about the odd book on the table - just shout, "You can SEE IT?!" - and then pretend you didn't say anything). Don't get me started on "IF" you actually read the book out loud... Just keep something handy from the medicinal...er..."beverage" pages handy.   

But what about the book, what about the secrets hidden inside. You didn't think that if you just get the book that all you get are the cool recipes. Today we will discuss the secrets and the mystery inside the book and pages.. ... We gave some hints on the Main ... page................. sorry getting distracted, here ... thought I heard something....... uh... the secrets..  

Ok, well there is a mystery to solve in the pages.. we have hidden some clues and secrets in the book. We have been told to not share this info but since I had some time before the end of the Kickstarter, I would divulge a clue or two... Sorry, It's tough typing with this small scratch on my hand that just won't stop itching...   the voices itch...

Well the secrets, we have found a .... crap this itch... I think it's bleeding now....  

Ok this is annoying, where was I? The itch, No, the Voices... grrrrrrr NO!.. the secrets... yah! the secrets... SHALL REMAIN HIDDEN! DON'T TELL THEM....  

What did I just type?.. and it won't delete, either... that's weird! Kickstarter is acting funny for me today. 

So, Sorry Backers, disregard that last stuff I think I typed.....LOL..   

So we have hidden some Easter eggs and ham and and bacon.... MMmmm breakfast..

What is wrong with me...? This damnable ITCH on my hand! Does this blood sound funny to you?    GAH!!!                              I need band-aids......

Solve the clues, find it..... Did, did. my hand.... Did my hand just BLINK!!!!!! 

What the...  

OK I'm DONE!! Find me a Hatchet!!! Oh, here it is in my other hand...wait, what? What's typing...?

Got mine today, and now all my other cookbooks are trying desperately to compress themselves together in the last .5" at the other end of the bookshelf...

Mine arrived also. The postman was so horrified by it, so eager to be rid of the foul package that it was flung upon my front steps in the rain and he fled in terror.  By some strange miracle or fortune of nature the volume itself was unharmed.

Ooh, I didn't even realize they were already reaching their destinations. I was expecting mine much later in the month... because Canada.

 

I'm expecting good things from the post office (mostly because of my Reaper order from December).

Bwahahah, I finally got it! For some odd reason, I received the latex book cover weeks before the book itself.

 

The artwork is a blend of mythos artwork and disturbing representations of very mundane items. And the recipes are hand written with arcane sounding vocabulary.

 

Example:

At the Fountains of Madness (serves :1)

  • 2oz scarlet syrup of Maraschin-Yoh
  • 1oz half-and-half
  • 10oz carbonic tincture of Ebon Serotina
  • 3-6 Ursus-Gao-mai encased in ice
  • 2-3 cross sections of fresh star fruit.

Preparation:

  • Freeze them and keep them frozen! The bears and the... others. None of it can be trusted.
  • Place them in the cylinder.
  • Mix the carbon-bearing base substrate with the dark ichor.
  • Then slide samples of the odd... fruit? These must be submerged fresh. Perfectly safe, vivisected as they are.
  • Damn the Professor's theory about the milk-proteins! Add for dis-stir-bing results.

 

P.S. There's a downloadable PDF in plain English to make it easier. So it's gummy bears in ice cubes, Maraschino cherry syrup, black cherry seltzer, gummy blobs/star fruit, half-and-half cream on top.

This Kickstarter did not disappoint! I've been using this as a prop for my Call of Cthulhu game. The artwork and presentation is incredible... exactly what I wanted (at a very reasonable price).

      Mel Bose – The Terrain Tutor – has been building terrain for almost as long as he can remember. When he was five, Mel built playsets for his little green army men in the corner of the craft store his mother ran. He was often assisted by model railroaders who were regulars at the store and, by the time he saw his first White Dwarf magazine at age 15, Mel was primed for a life of building terrain.
      Mel has traveled the world, as a medic in the army, a physiotherapist, and even a salesman. He has worked with people from all walks of life, and looked at things from many different perspectives. It is this approach that he brings to his successful YouTube channel (The Terrain Tutor, click the image below to check it out). For the last fiveyears, Mel has been able to make a living from sharinghis passion – teaching people everything he knows about building terrain for tabletopwargaming, for hobbyists, clubs, displays, and for dioramas – and it’s that passion and knowledge that he is bringing to this book, TERRAIN ESSENTIALS.
      This Kickstarter campaign is to fund a printed version of the book – TERRAIN ESSENTIALS – a 96+ page book perfect to add to the collection of anyone with an interest in creating excellent tabletop terrain, regardless of purpose or the builder's ability.
      The Content of TERRAIN ESSENTIALS
      Mel has spent many years researching all manner of tools, materials and techniques, as well as experimenting and documenting his process. He’ll be putting it down on paper for the first time, and TERRAIN ESSENTIALS will include: 
      • Theory – From inspiration and research to planning and set design, from colour theory and build types to workflow and longterm project management, this section will help you plan the best terrain for you before you even start building.
      • Materials & Tools – Covering all the most commonly used materials, from basic craft and DIY to specialist modeling materials – including how and where to use them in terrain making – along with an in-depth guide to the essential simple, professional, and custom tools specific to making terrain, this section is all about making sure you have the right tool and right material for the job!
      • Core Techniques – From cutting bases to sealing your finished terrain and a whole host of techniques in-between, this section will ensure you have a solid understanding of the core skills and techniques used across the spectrum of terrain building. Covering the essentials, from basics like cutting and gluing, to advanced washes, sealing techniques and combating warping, this section will not only give you the information and confidence to use these techniques but also troubleshoot them.
      • Base, Texture, and Paint – Good terrain starts with a good foundation and this section provides in-depth coverage of basing, laying down the ground, realistic texturing techniques, and a range of earth tone painting guides. From cheap and easy basing materials to perfect pigments, you will have the information you need to make sure all of your projects start with a solid, realistic foundation.
      • Grasses and Trees – This section is all about the greenery, from laying down beautiful and durable grasslands and pastures, to tufts, flowers, shrubs, bushes and hedgerows. As well as tackling the small stuff, this section will go into creating a range of trees; everything from armatures, to bark textures, painting and finally creating awesome looking foliage for your trees.
      • Hills and Rocks – As the most common feature on gaming tables, this section covers those rocks, slopes, hills, and cliffs. We look at everything from a number of different construction techniques to maximising playability without sacrificing realism, realistic painting guides, and more advanced techniques for modular and large feature hills and cliffs. 
      • Buildings and Ruins – Buildings and ruins can be mini-projects in their own right, so this section breaks it all down and takes you step-by-step through building, painting and fine detailing for buildings from our history, or a dystopian, gothic, far-flung future. Covering multiple techniques for everything from the foundations to the roofs, this section will have you making the best buildings for your urban combat.
      • Water and Snow – Often seen as the more challenging aspects of terrain making, this section will demystify water and snow pieces, giving you a range of techniques, core colour theory, and guides to the most common pieces like ponds, modular rivers, and snowy terrain.
      • Terrain Kits – As kits, prints, and casts become more prevalent in tabletop gaming, this section not only equips you with the key knowledge to make putting your kit together problem free. But it’s not only about building kits; we will also take you through customising and tying your kits to your existing terrain collection, giving you what you need to turn each kit into a unique terrain piece.
      • Mel’s Top Tips – Throughout the previous sections, Mel will be giving his top tips, tricks and fixes, making sure you learn from his mistakes so your builds go as smoothly as possible.
      We are planning to cover each of these chapters in as much detail as possible, to give you as much information as we can. We have a number of stretch goals planned that will help us provide more in-depth knowledge on each of the techniques used and sample builds shown in the book. 
      Why create a book?
      It has been quite a while since there was a great “Introduction to Terrain Building” type of book on the market, so after five years of helping the community build their terrain on Youtube, it seemed right for Mel to be the one to do it. On The Terrain Tutor YouTube channel, Mel presents a lot of great ideas, techniques, materials, and tools in a handy, episodic fashion, but we know that not everyone learns in the same way. The written word (particularly when accompanied by great photographs) can help many terrain builders connect with the material covered in Mel’s videos. Helping others enjoy their hobby is one of the key drivers behind The Terrain Tutor, and Mel finds there’s certainly a lot of job satisfaction when helping others be happy is your living.
      Mel is partnering with Dave Taylor, of Dave Taylor Miniatures, to bring this book to life. Dave has been involved in tabletop miniatures wargaming for almost 30 years, has worked in "the business" for 25 years, and has known Mel for a decade. Dave recently delivered his own book aimed at helping wargamers complete more of their wargaming projects more often – Armies & Legions & Hordes – which he successfully funded here on Kickstarter last year. Dave is running this campaign, and will be coordinating the layout, editing, publishing, and distribution of TERRAIN ESSENTIALS.
      Of course, this campaign is also a bit of an experiment. If things go well, we may look into a series of more detailed books for a future campaigns.

      A small STL KS for 10 CA$. The first stretch goal has already been unlocked. It's a bit over the place (cheesecake, dwarves, grungs), but the models look nice and the price is good.
