Have a look at cpt city: http://soliton.vm.bytemark.co.uk/pub/cpt-city/
While very much colour based, there is at least one grey scale palette. It does 
not support stipples or hatchings as far as I know. 
It does support downloading palettes in native FOSS GIS formats such as GMT & 
QGIS. 

QGIS also supports the native use of colour gradients from there,

Have a look at http://colorbrewer2.org

There you can check for grey-scale tones that are distinguishable and  
printer friendly, so you can set up a palette with those values.
The downside of grey scales is, that there are not so many different tones  
available as when working with colours.

Cheers
