      For sure - you'll be able to do that in Backerkit, once the survey goes out. No worries!

      Am I still able to update my address?

    3. Mike Slater Collaborator on March 28

      Hi David!
      We are posting minor updates and fun stuff to The Necronomnomnom Facebook page, here:

      Major updates will be done here, and we hope to have you guys a sampling of finished pages soon!

      Hey Edward! We are working on a pre-order store that will let you enhance your purchase/pledge...and there's some other super-neato news we are close to being able to announce. Stay tuned/keep chanting!

      Will we still have the option of buying a printed copy in addition to the digital one if that is what we backed?

      Thanks for the answer! I'm still trying to learn to do interesting things with cooking, and I thought this would be a perfect thing for game nights and Halloween. :)

      Hi Steve,
      The print edition will only have the "fancy versions". The digital will have both. Once we get those out the door, we are looking at very plain text versions posted to the FB page or a future other on-line resource we can offer to backers. Hope that helps answer your question.

    8. Steve Fennel on March 5

      Will simple minded cultist be able to follow these recipes (i.e. will basic language recipes accompany the fancy written language)?

    9. Mike Slater Collaborator on March 5

      Paradoxical Mouse - any and all recipes can, of course, be tailored to taste or dietary need. Space constraints in the book won't let us include all possible variants - we leave that to the cultis...ah...chefs. It is possible that at some point after completion we can leverage the FB page to document alternatives, submitted dietary tweaks, etc. We'd love that!

      As for this one, a dark syrup of your desired complimentary flavor (molasses comes to mind), will likely serve.

    10. Shane Plagmann on March 5

      @P.Mouse use a little more milk (ecxues me: life blood of a bovine) instead of rum with your nog for a non-alcoholic version.

      It would need to be an option, of course. I know lots of people like alcohol in their nog

      If you add the Nog to the book, is it possible to make a non alchoholic version? My BF won't drink alcohol.

    13. Mike Slater Collaborator on February 28

      Hi Richard!
      The decision was to wait on the surveys until we have an actual shipping weight on the finished book, so that people know what actual shipping and handling will be.
      While this does make the wait for the survey much longer, it allows us to not guess on shipping, and not have to change it later if we are wrong. That in turn allows us to not be forced to overestimate with a flat "worst case" rate - which ultimately reduces costs to you. We felt (as did everyone who responded) that this was the better course of action. :-)

      Any news on surveys? I can't wait to see this book

    15. Mike Slater Collaborator on February 23

      Yep! Planning an official update for the weekend. Overall writing is about 70%, recipe "translation" about 25%. Art in the update after this next one, and cover photos! As stuff begins to roll in, we'll update more frequently with actual things to show. We're not scuba diving in Innsmouth or anything. ;-)

    16. Snakeeyz99 on February 23

      Hey guys, how are things going? Any big developments? The whispers are telling me they won't stop until I've made everything in the book.

    17. Mike Slater Collaborator on January 8

      @Matt - The digital copy should be out about the same time as the print copy - aiming for June 2018. If anything, it is more complex and has more material than print, so we hope to be able to release them together or close to it. We will be posting page updates as we go.

      @Tamy - Yes, the carol is going in as bonus material. The Nog-Sothoth recipe was done purely at request, but we might fit it in. People seemed to like it.

    18. Tamy on January 7

      I know the xmas carol is not something cooking related but is it going in the cook book? Also what about that recipe for the festive drink on here? (Nog-sothoth)

    19. Matthew Mandrak

      Any details on when the digital copy will be available?

    20. Red Duke Games 2-time creator on December 26

      And of course we will be providing the surveys to everyone in a few months. We will be providing them when we have an exact weight of the book and proper shipping fees.
      Thanks for your patience.

    21. Red Duke Games 2-time creator on December 26

      @Steve, I think we could add those options quite easily - if we add it to the book...

      @Coen - Look for the Pre-order/ Late Backer links soon

    22. Steve Fennel on December 23

      Ok, I️ loved the recipe. I️ did make a few personal taste alterations (sprinkle of cayenne pepper and a dash of heavy cream to the mixture......maybe an increase to the alcohol because the richness easily handled it, and my in-laws are visiting!!)

    23. Coen Zuidervaart on December 22

      I backed this thing as a gift for a friend who is into horror and cooking, but the more I am seeing of this book, the more I feel like I'll have to get a copy for myself as well!

    24. Red Duke Games 2-time creator on December 21

      Let us know how it turns out and take pictures as proof of its evilness

    25. Steve Fennel on December 21

      I’m making it tonight!!.....well done on a rush ritual.....I️ mean recipe

      @Mike that sound perfectly evil lol going to have to try this

    27. Mike Slater Collaborator on December 20

      Steve - this is quick and dirty (plain text) - and may be exclusive to the Kickstarter. Hastily tested, so...let us know how it goes if you try it. If further development and feedback makes it a must-include, it could end up in the book!

      NOG-SOTHOTH - The Liquor at the Punch Bowl
      Serves: As the Gate and the Key for 7 beings of mortal fortitude

      4 egg yolks & 4 egg whites separated
      1/3 cup sugar
      1 tbsp sugar
      1 pint whole milk
      1 cup heavy cream
      4 oz Kraken spiced rum
      1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
      1 cup black bubble tea boba tapioca pearls
      ½ cup light karo or sugar syrup

      Ritual of Manifestation:

      With a mixer, beat the egg yolks until light and frothy. Add the 1/3 cup sugar gradually until completely dissolved. Stir in the cream, milk, rum and nutmeg.
      Separately beat the egg whites to soft peaks in a mixer then while the mixer still running add the 1 tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form.
      Whisk the egg whites into the mixture. Chill and serve.
      Cook's Note: For cooked eggnog, follow procedure below.
      With a mixer, beat the egg yolks until light and frothy. Add the 1/3 cup sugar gradually until completely dissolved. Set aside.
      In a medium size saucepan, add the milk, heavy cream and nutmeg and stirring occasionally bring to a boil. Remove from heat and gradually add the hot mixture into the egg and sugar mixture. Then return everything to the saucepan and heat the mixture up to 160 degrees F. Remove from the heat and stir in the rum. Transfer the Nog to a bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill.
      Separately beat the egg whites to soft peaks in a mixer then while the mixer still running add the 1 tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form.
      Whisk the egg whites into the mixture. Chill and serve.
      Adding Sothoth to your Nog - preparing the Black Bubble Tea Boba Tapioca Pearls
      Add a portion of the tapioca Pearls to boiling water until pearls float - stir to keep from sticking. Reduce heat to Medium high and cook uncovered for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot from the heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse pearls, transferring to a small container. Add light syrup to cover pearls. Spoon into drinks if you dare.
      Yes, between the Kraken and the boba pearls - it’s supposed to look like that.

    28. Steve Fennel on December 20

      @Mike: Looking forward to what you guys come up with.

    29. Mike Slater Collaborator on December 20

      @Steve - You're on the right track with the Kraken, and I do like the whole "Scylla and Charibdys in a glass" theme. But...we have something else in mind. Stay tuned.

      hahahahaha something I will have to give to my friends wife who is a ginger lol

    31. Steve Fennel on December 19

      Headed to the liquor store tomorrow to grab supplies for the forthcoming recipe. Maybe it will be a map to the dark side of the moon called the Nameless Rock:

      Kraken dark rum (the dark depths of the seas that flow around the Nameless Rock are known to be patrolled by large tentacle Beast who’s dark souls give shadow to any berth of light)

      Ginger beer/Ale (sailors avoid the Nameless Rock at all cost. Occasionally, however, a ship may venture too close to its borders. When it does, only the soulless ginger sailors are welcome to dock on its shores. All others perish on its banks)

      Pineapple garnish (what, it’s pineapple).

      @Siredwolf - Sadly and Sorry, no surveys were sent out this weekend. We had some changes in planning that had and still have to happen before the actual surveys go out.. Blame me for wanting to be proactive without all my facts checked...

      I never received the Backerkit survey this weekend. Would you all be able to send me another one?

    35. Mike Slater Collaborator on December 18

      All the drinks are festive, and will definitely send you on holiday. Probably can get a plain text one to you in time. Let me see what I can do...

    36. Steve Fennel on December 18

      @Demandred: Absolutely!!

    37. Demandred
      on December 18

      @Steve that sounds awesome, something like The Culling of Cthulhu with eggnog and 151 lol

    38. Steve Fennel on December 16

      Any chance we can get a festive drink recipe for the holidays? Perhaps in an update.....

    39. Red Duke Games 2-time creator on December 15

      Surveys coming out this weekend...
