Savage Suzerain goes live!

Suzerain is an Origins Award Nominee from the Talisman Studios design house (who brought you Shaintar and Gamescapes, and are Origins Award winners for Deadlands Reloaded). This edition of Suzerain is written for the Savage Worlds rule system (SW:EX rulebook required), expanding the core rules in a number of key ways – a new approach to races is just the beginning.

Suzerain takes characters from one world to another or even to another time. History and fantasy; past, present and future – they are all your playground now. Your gaming group just became...

...a pantheon in the making.

Inside the covers you’ll find:

* All the universe background you’ll need to run games in any time, any place.
* Over 50 new Edges, Hindrances and Powers.
* Stats for over 100 new NPCs and monsters to use as allies and adversaries.
* A vastly expanded system for characters once they hit Heroic rank, with plenty of emphasis on the Legendary experience, and introducing a whole new rank – Demigod.
* 30 scenarios including a campaign spanning the three main eras of a character’s development – Novice, Heroic and Demigod.

Where most Savage Worlds settings finish their campaigns, Suzerain is just getting started. With Suzerain a Novice character can expect to battle his way up to being a true Hero of the universe, to meet deities, and finally to become a god himself!

Product Contains: A 196 page full color, hi-resolution PDF. It is a large download file and art intensive. Also included for the same price is a print friendly version.

Available from: Savage Mojo Shop, RPGNOW, DriveThruRPG, and Paizo, for your convenience.

Savage Mojo partners with Cubicle 7

We’re delighted to announce that Savage Mojo is joining forces with Cubicle 7 to deliver a range of roleplay material in print.

“Our traditional strength has been in the PDF market,” said Martin Klimes, the head of Savage Mojo, “and we plan to continue offering high art downloads for the convenience of gamers everywhere. Now, though, we can move beyond the occasional print-on-demand offering to develop a full range of products in game stores.”

The initial roll-out in the first half of 2010 will see the following RPG game books going to print, each one an addition to our acclaimed Suzerain game universe.

Savage Suzerain, our core setting book for the multi-award winning Savage Worlds system (192 pages). We’ll be following this book with six setting/campaign books, each hard bound and full color throughout:

Dogs of Hades, 160 pages of Spartans in Space. Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ meets ‘300’. Admit you’re intrigued.

Shanghai Vampocalypse, a cyberpunk setting and campaign for demigod characters where one vampire is a monster… but eight million are an apocalypse!

Noir Knights, a setting and campaign in the Great Depression of the 1930s, where gumshoes and government agents investigate the paranormal and the truth is out there.

Caladon Falls, the first part of the War of the Wild series in the fantasy world of Relic, and a gritty look at what it’s really like to be inside a war in a fantasy setting.

Covert Ops, where it’s 1998 and there are secret agents and Secret Agents. Answering the question, “What would Tom Clancy do with his elite special forces troops if there were werewolves and wizards to hunt?”

Halcyon 6, a far future aboard the most exciting exploration fleet to ever leave known space… right until everything goes wrong, about ten seconds through the Archon Gate.

Additionally, we’re delighted to announce the development of our first special edition: Celestium Empires, a self contained swashbuckling world for our own Mojo Rules! game system, planned as two 256 page full-color volumes, including all the rules you need to play politics among the courts of the New World empires, cross swords with pirates in the Setward Isles, or head out to the wild frontier… and it’s very wild indeed.


Savage Mojo was formed under the name ‘Talisman Studios’ 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, becoming a publisher in its own right, starting with its Gamescapes line of game accessories and building up to the launch of Suzerain. 2008 saw the company work on more than a hundred high art gaming products, with Suzerain being Origins Award semi-finalists. 2009 expanded the range of books and game accessories further and brought products to print for the first time. 2010 will see Savage Mojo in game shops everywhere through a partnership with Cubicle 7.

Suzerain is a multi-genre, multi-world game universe, 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. As a whole it’s awesome. Suzerain can be as simple or detailed as the players and GM want. The art is absolutely gorgeous. Hopefully it's obvious I'm pretty high on this product. Wow. Just wow.”
