Grinning Skull Studios Patreon Launched!

5 Sep

patreon bar2

Well, it’s been ages but I finally did it, launched the Grinning Skull Patreon page. This had been on the back boiler for a hell of a long time, but due to life commitments and other stuff, I had always put it off. Partly because I think I didn’t quite get what it all meant, but after long drawn out studies of the whole thing, I decided it was the right time.

So, I guess you are wondering what it all means? Well, for those out there who don’t know about Patreon, is that it’s a way for people like yourself to help support independent creators (such as little old me) and keep the lights on here, free to create more content and push forward. It is also a way to interact and take a role in shaping future stuff and stay ahead with news and so forth with said creators.

To go directly over to Patreon, check it out here:

OFFICIAL GRINNING SKULL STUDIOS PATREON PAGE

Free (ish!) 100 Dusty Paperbacks on an Abandoned Bookshelf for Modern RPGs Download Now!

20 Sep

Hello again, just a post to let you know about this month’s Pointless Classics title is 100 Dusty Paperbacks on an Abandoned Bookshelf for all Modern RPGs.

This PDF is ideal for those moments during your game when players are searching and scavenging on shelves and so on. Not every search will come up with anything decent for your PC’s will find scrounging about, so why not throw them some tatty old paperback books instead! Inside there are 100 random books for them to discover,  complete with a genre (For adding an author you can use 100 Stupid, Silly or Offensive Names for all RPGs, or any of our name PDFs from our Publisher pages here DrivethruRPG and RPGnow.)

As with the other monthly Pointless Classic titles, they are Pay What You Want, which means exactly that, you pay what you want! If you’re feeling generous you can pay a little donation (which helps to our running costs) or just get the titles for free! That’s right, FREE!

Of course, we have a steadily ever growing range of digital pdf hobby products which can be browsed at our respective publisher pages at DriveThruRPG, RPGnow, and Wargame Vault by clicking the links on this page.

I’ll be back later to discuss more on my first impressions on Osprey’s Rogue Stars, which I’m pouring over right now…
