Talisman Studios becomes Savage Mojo

By on 11 December 2009

After years of creating great gaming titles under the name ‘Talisman Studios’, we’ve decided that it’s time our real name… Savage Mojo… became known in its own right. After all, we focus on the Savage Worlds and Mojo Rules! roleplay systems, so it makes sense to use the name we gave the company.

The Talisman Studios name was originally created in 2003 when the company was an art and design studio to the adventure games industry, the brainchild of master artists Jason Engle and Aaron Acevedo. Since then it has expanded, is an Origins Award Winner (for Deadlands Reloaded), and two times Semi-Finalist (for Suzerain and Shaintar). These days Savage Mojo creates more than just roleplaying games, adding the Gamescapes line of gaming accessories, graphical fiction and art prints to our portfolio.

It’s time to throw off the RPG name of old and get used to the bold, new identity of Savage Mojo. Our website is now www.savagemojo.com (if you go to the old site you’ll get forwarded there), and we have a whole new look that shows how savage our mojo is!

Bold, New Direction

As part of our step into the future, we’re making a few product changes too. After talking with Sean Patrick Fannon about his wishes for Shaintar, we’ve agreed that Sean will take his setting and develop it using other means in 2010. Savage Mojo will still be selling all Shaintar products through Christmas, but from the New Year Sean has other plans. We wish him and Shaintar luck – it’s been a pleasure to publish his vision of high fantasy over these years. We know that Sean plans an announcement of his own in due course.

As for our other great setting, Suzerain, we’re moving forward on some amazing developments. Next week we release the Savage Suzerain rule book, bringing Suzerain to the Savage Worlds audience, and we already have six full color setting books in development to go alongside it.

And don’t go thinking that we’re slacking on Mojo Rules! or Gamescapes. Both of those lines are set to have their strongest year ever in 2010. Watch out for more news in the coming days!

“There’s an amazing feel to Savage Mojo right now.” said Martin Klimeš, Publisher at the company. “We’ve got all these wonderful words and maps and pieces of art in the works, and there’s that intense energy you get just before a creative storm. The coming year is going to be one heck of a creative storm for us!”

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
