Grinning Skull Studios: Singularity Adventure Module GSAM02 Out Now!

23 Sep

Back again with a new release, Grinning Skull Studios present SINGULARITY Adventure Module GSAM02, our latest System-free Sci-fi module.

http://www.rpgnow.com/product/222254/SingularityAdventure-Module-GSAM02

Have you ever woken up dead, but just never realized it? Well, that’s exactly what happens to the crew of the Scientific Research Vessel, Clausius.

When the player characters awake from cryostasis, their brains, addled by the cryogenic mind fog of hypersleep drugs, are in no fit state to realize there is anything out of the ordinary happening – other than the proximity alarms blaring, and the crew of an unknown vessel about to board their ship.

As they scramble to save their ship, the player characters realize there is more going on than meets the eye. Not only has the ship’s distress beacon has been activated, but when they discover the withered husks of the rest of the crew, they realize their last memories of leaving Earth don’t match with what they are seeing. Except for one crew member, that is. He has distinct memories of events long after they left Earth behind.

As the player characters desperately try to keep control of their ship and get to grips with the mysterious events that have happened around them, they realize the external threat is nothing compared to the existential threat that lurks within.

Complete with pre-generated characters, this one-shot sci-fi adventure throws the player characters straight into the action, and if they survive, they might just begin to question what it means to be human.

Suitable for most Sci-fi RPGs such as Traveller and starfinder, or just about any game!

100 Cavern features & Dungeon dressings for all fantasy RPGs.

9 Sep

Hello again, shameless plug for our latest release, 100 Cavern features & Dungeon dressings for all fantasy RPGs. 

This great publication will help any GM flesh out details for dungeon room interiors where none might have been before. Inside there are 100 detailed descriptions you can easily add to these blank spaces, either roll randomly, or simply choose from the list.

You can quickly create entire detailed dungeons with this book, and by adding Grinning Skull’s, 100 Creepy yet meaningless encounters for Caverns and Dungeons,  for all RPGs to the mix, you can add even more flavour to your settings!!

You can find both these books at either RPGNow or DrivethruRPG at our publisher pages here:

  

Putting publications in print. Anyone want a copy?

8 Jun

Ploughing through the various ways of self-publishing in print is very interesting. So, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on the subject and show you an early version I have had done for quality comparison.

Back in the day, I remember the old indie RPG crowd in a similar position to Grinning Skull, and remembered the various ways of printing their home-brewed scenarios and sourcebooks and rules. Many were spiral bound for ease of use during play, so first off, I wanted to check it out for the old skool vibe. Since many of the titles in the back catalogue (Of which there are over 100!), many of them lack the large page count to justify such becoming an A4 spiral bound book without either compiling them or changing them enough for such a task.

As you can see, “The Witch’s Daughter” (GSAM01) scenario was a good fit, being that the 68-page count does actually warrant such binding. I can say, the printing of the front and back cover is perfect and glossy, the interior is lovely edge to edge printing of decent quality black and white. I can’t complain about this test version.

I hope to produce limited runs of several titles over time and offer them for purchase to see who would be interested in having a copy (If your interested in getting a copy in this or another format, please get in touch and I’ll give you more details) Print titles planned for this A4 format (Probably more likely to be in A4 Saddle-stitched format) will include Modules GSAM01 The Witch’s Daughter (Above) GSAM02 Singularity (Sci-fi adventure, coming soon) and GSAM03 Betrayal at Tarsus Mor (fantasy adventure, coming soon), plus there will be Grinning skull’s Book of Riddles (an edited and combined edition of 100 Riddles volumes 1 & 2), A collected and added to version of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom articles found on this site, and the next Grinning Skull Compendium/Annual for 2017.

Let me know your thoughts, interest and comments, either by the comments box below, or contact me via the form.

Also, a quick reminder, The Witch’s Daughter is still available from us in PDF format and as part of the “Witch’s Daughter Adventure bundle” deal that adds extra relevant titles at a discounted price.
