Talisman Studios has joined in with Paypal to be a part of a great cash giveaway in the coming days…

This offer is specifically for people in the UK and Paypal have £10,000 to hand out, every week through April and May. We figured we’d like to show some love to British gamers, so we signed up. All you need to do is visit us at and use Paypal to pay for your goodies in the shop. A few quid on a beautiful Suzerain book or two, maybe some Shaintar action, or some Gamescapes accessories… and Paypal could be paying you ten thousand pounds for the pleasure!

There’s no better time to try some of our games or accessories.


Talisman Studios was formed in 2003 as an art and design studio to the adventure games industry, the brainchild of master artists Jason Engle and Aaron Acevedo. The studio is an Origins Award Winner (for Deadlands Reloaded), and has worked on dozens of products. In May 2007 the company stepped up a gear and became a publisher in its own right, starting with its Gamescapes line of game accessories leading up to the launch of Suzerain and Shaintar. 2008 saw the company work on more than a hundred high art gaming products, with both Suzerain and Shaintar being Origins Award semi-finalists.

Suzerain is a multi-genre, multi-world game system, Origins Award nominated in 2008. Ron Blessing of The Game’s The Thing ( had this to say about it, “I can’t wait to spend time in this playground. The book as a whole is awesome. Suzerain can be as simple or detailed as the players and director want. The art is absolutely gorgeous. Hopefully it’s obvious I’m pretty high on this product. Wow. Just wow.”

Shaintar is the Origins Award nominated fantasy roleplaying game by Sean Patrick Fannon, with art by Jason Engle. In development for over twenty years, its depth of detail has enchanted fantasy players in various incarnations. It is the standout choice for Savage Worlds players or any gaming fans seeking epic high fantasy adventure.

Gamescapes is the line of roleplay accessories by Talisman Studios. Suitable for any game, irrespective of the rule system you use, these high-art card sets and map tiles can add a little style to any gaming table. Here’s a selection of what our customers have said in reviews: “Perfect…”, “The entire run of the cards (Talisman Studios Story Cards) is superb…. Really some very cool artwork and design!”, “Artwork and layout of all the tiles is just amazing! These map tiles look great when printed out! My players are going to love it!”, “Two thumbs up!”.
