So, happy halloween readers, I thought I'd share this with you. Yes it seemed appropriate to post this up seeing as though it's the season of all things ghostly. I can assure each and everyone of you that this tale is genuine (its no creepy pasta made up shite, its my true account of what… Continue reading A true tale for Halloween: When I lived in a haunted house.

I Want that F*%king Miniature!: Snookums Horrorclix
I haven't had much opportunity to post recently, nor have I had chance to access any of my stuff to continue my articles in the Grim's Dungeons of Doom series (Trust me, next part is coming up in the form of barrels...) So, with that in mind until normal service is resumed I'm going to… Continue reading I Want that F*%king Miniature!: Snookums Horrorclix
Weird 15mm Games I should run: Zombies On The Buses…
I have some weird ideas for wargames, and while most can be somewhat surreal at times, there are some that really stick in my head. A lot of these would be ideal games for conventions as they aren't really ideas you'd use in a campaign over the course of a few sessions. These would prove… Continue reading Weird 15mm Games I should run: Zombies On The Buses…
Slenderman, slenderman, where for art thou, slenderman…
The first time I ever heard about the Slenderman, was when one of my kids mentioned it to me, and asked if I ever heard of the legend (as if it was real) To which I told him that it was probably made up, as I'd not heard about it at any time. He and… Continue reading Slenderman, slenderman, where for art thou, slenderman…
Fan Vs Fan, Tales of Star Wars fandom and extended universes…
In times gone by when I was a nipper, I remember the old crappy plastic chewbacca costume I used to own. How I'd run around the place pretending to be the famous wookie co pilot of the millenium falcon, I was nuts about Star Wars. As luck would have it, I'm still a fan today.… Continue reading Fan Vs Fan, Tales of Star Wars fandom and extended universes…

Here's something I never thought I'd be revisting, but once again I'm back with more new Clown News, a feature that has been rather popular here on the Grinning Skull blog. Ok, so I thought as many did, that the clown craze was just a fad that had died out, but I was wrong.… Continue reading Clown News: Creepy Staten Island clown, Manchester and Cambridge Clowns also on the loose!!
Cannibals and Corpses (No, it’s not a Roleplaying game, or a band. It’s real!)
Following on from this weeks finale in The Walking Dead, what with their suspected terminus cannibal types, I thought I'd take it upon myself to guide you to a few choice real world tales of flesh munchers and cadavers. On the theme of people eaters, that being cannibals to me and you, firstly I want… Continue reading Cannibals and Corpses (No, it’s not a Roleplaying game, or a band. It’s real!)
