We are back,The Grinning Skull is back online!!

9 Aug

backbaby

Well folks, after a lot of messing around, creating a archive/new site, much hair pulling out and other guff. We are back.

I could sit here and type to you, what the hell has gone on, but suffice to say I’m not going to bore you with an entire catalogue of problems, I’m just happy that this is sorted.

The only thing is, it’s now left me with an other site, with an almost identical set up as here. Never the less, for now, I’m going to update both and after some jiggery pokery, I’ll post on both, amend links and try to integrate them with each other. That way, if anything goes tits up again, everything will be up to date.

Of course, all this has caused some damage to my online space, with the various algorithms and doo-dah’s on the internet, I hope to overcome this blip eventually (plus, having two sites listed with links to each other, and material etc can’t be a bad thing? Right?) So for now, while I sort out stuff on here, and www.grinningskullstudios.design.blog (which for those of you who don’t know, is where the archived site exists also)

All posts from there, will be exported/reblogged on here, just for my completist nature. You’ll be able to read them as soon as I get sorted out, but if you want to read it now, jump over to www.grinningskullstudios.design.blog and read them now.

I’m just glad that the original is back.

Catch you later, and let me know if any of you subscribers are getting notified, or any other things have stirred (blog network links, rss and other crap) into resurrection!

Site News: Domain update, www.thegrinningskull.com

29 May

Just a quick post to let you know that the site can now be accessed by visiting “http://thegrinningskull.com” at it’s new domain. The site can still be visited by the old extension (https://thegrinningskull.wordpress.com) as well, but the new domain is easier to remember and visiting the old extension will still bring you into the site with the new one.

Advertising is now open, and those wishing to sell their wares or advertise on here are welcomed to get in touch to discuss terms and rates (use the contact me page to get in touch) Also, anyone wishing to advertise in Grinning Skull Design Studios PDFs, should also get in touch to discuss rates and details.

Last off, there’s been a bit of a re-organisation of the RPGnow/DrivethruRPG publisher pages to include sub-category entries for easier browsing of our products. You can visit these pages via the links to the right side of this page to checkout our ever growing ranges of PDF titles!

As ever, I welcome any comments, suggestions, ideas and creative criticisms that would improve this site, so please leave your comments, likes & shares, or get in touch via the contact me page if you want to talk about anything or discuss ideas for articles/future publications/etc.

Skulltaliser Update (and you can buy me a coffee if you like!)

19 May

So, it’s that time again to show you where we are on the mighty Skulltaliser chart at this point in time.

So, we’re at $59 so far. Will we reach the goal by the end of the month? I would say so.

One thing you can do to help is buying me a coffee! Yes that’s right, you can help by showing your appreciation by buying me a cuppa joe! Ko-fi is an easy way to support creators (such as myself) and is simple to use.

Just click the link (either at the side bar of this page, or the link below) and it’ll take you through to our very own page where you can do so (all proceeds to the skulltaliser total)

(thanks to Dagger & Brush for this idea!!)

More from the Skulltaliser later…

So, as I sit hear nursing a headache, I did mean to remind anyone submitting Advertising to the Grinning Skull Compendium 2016. The deadline is 15th August, so if your still interested in including your advert in the PDF, I need your stuff by then, as after that I will be doing all the finishing touches for an end of August release.

We still have space to run more ads, so if you’d like to be involved as an advertiser, or even want to submit an article, let me know by leaving me a message via the contact page and if you want to know more check out this article detailing the compendium.

I’m off to take some paracetamol now, so see you all later!

9 Aug

Ok, so finally I found the photos for this episode of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom; Realm of the dead. This article, we are going to make some Necropolis Obelisks or tomb marker type monuments, these will match the rest of the other dungeon set and work well as standalone pieces in their own right. As ever, you can catch up with other articles in  this series by clicking on the link in the menu, to see how the set is put together. I’ll be detailing two different designs here, but the idea is simple so it’s just to illustrate how you can make up your own designs with little real effort. Anyway, lets get going and build something… Continue reading
