New Release: Harphogayth Campaign tool for 5th Edition Fantasy.

7 Nov

I’m back with yet more Grinning Skull Studios publications news for November!

Kicking off this month’s first release is the Harphogayth campaign tool, our very first real foray into material published for 5th Edition Fantasy. Written by Davide Quatrini, this supplement is a heavily inspired Manga/Anime style take on magical possessed power suits.

The Harphogayth supplement is a Science-Fantasy campaign tool which details using the ancient and alien artifacts known as “Harphogayths” in their campaigns.
These arcane power suits hold hidden powers and lore from an ancient lost civilisation and allow you to run campaigns and adventures in a sci-fantasy setting, heavily inspired by Manga/Anime styled fiction.
Detailed are five different and powerful Harphogayth armor suits for both your Players and NPCs.

Grinning Skull Studios October Release Round-Up

4 Nov

Well, as the saying goes, better late than never, indeed we are a few days late in posting the mammoth load of Grinning Skull studios publications that were released last month. I actually think that it’s a new record here, which also leaves us only 31 releases left before we hit 200 Grinning Skull publications in total! Quite a milestone, which I’m pretty confident will easily get smashed to take us over this before 2018 is upon us!

I’m hoping that by the end of 2018, we can get to 400, which would be very cool a target indeed and something I’ll be seriously trying to get to! anyway, enough about the future, let’s talk about the past, hop in my metaphoric time capsule with me and let’s explore October…

First up are two titles for use with those of you who play any sort of Apocalyptic RPG. Aimed at the zombie genre of play, but easily put to use for nuclear aftermath type games, or any other end of the world themed game. Check them out here:

October’s Pointless classic title is 100 B-Movies, ideal to fill in background fluff in modern settings, It’s a Pay What You Want Title (as are all Pointless Classics) so technically free to download, although the more generous of you out there can donate a bit (if you want, you don’t have to!) as a special way of thanking us for our kindness at making these available this way!

Grinning Skull’s Oddball Outlet: Custom Gamer Chests for sale!

29 Aug

Hello there everyone, In a departure from the usual stuff we have on sale from Grinning Skull Studios, I’d like to show you some physical product for once. Oddball Outlet is a term coined by yours truly, to describe any stuff I’ll be putting out to sell. I have quite a few gaming items coming up for grabs, so keep your eyes peeled.

In a throwback to previous products I’ve done before, I still like to turn my hand to actual objects, so these came about after quite a few private customers requested me to create these hand crafted & finished babies. So, after a successful batch run of our custom Gamer prop chests, I have decided to offer the rest of this batch for sale via eBay sales. I’ll be finishing more over time, but only to use up my remaining stock parts, so these are very limited (I’m not currently taking custom commission orders for these at this point, but might do so in the future, so if you are wanting a truly custom creation, get in touch and we’ll chat…)

These lovely hand finished, custom boxes are perfect for you fantasy gamers out there (but, of course, I’d say that!) So, without further ado, I’ll let the pics do the talking!

As you can see, the above chest, titled “The Arcane Herbalist”, is jam packed with trinkets and stuff, perfect as a gift, or spoil yourself and use as a display piece or prop for gaming, the choice is yours. It could be yours for £30 with free UK postage. You can find the listing for the “Arcane Herbalist” Chest over on eBay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310231240?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

This box, “The Fortune Teller” includes all sorts of fortune telling gubbins, it even comes with it’s very own crystal ball. Again it’s perfect as a gift, or a treat to yourself! This comes in at £30 with free UK postage. You can find the detailed listing on eBay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310239265?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Lastly, we have a standard small gamer chest. These contain 20 coin counters, and a full set of gaming dice. these smaller boxes are ideal to keep your various gaming trinkets inside, or for whatever use you’d like. This hand finished box is available for £18 (again with free UK P&P) and can be found here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310243617?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

If you’d like to take a closer look at these fine wares, click on the links and it will take you to the eBay page of the product. Also, like I said before, I’m not really taking up new commissions for these (for those of you after custom pieces that is) but may be tempted if you are after something that sounds like it’d be interesting to make (then I may be interested in doing it) reasons being, my time is limited and these take up more than I’d like.

I’ll also apologise for any overseas readers who might be interested, so that being said, I might consider international shipping and purchase, but I would need to sort out shipping prices and insurance etc. Get in touch and we’ll have a chat, but I’m not promising anything (Gimme a good incentive, that might work!)

I’ll be putting some more stuff up over the next few days, lots of 40k books and so on, so keep your eyes peeled!
