Q) So who's behind this Brainradio thing, anyway?
A) Brainradio is a virtual imprint of Savage Mojo Ltd.
Q) Excuse me, savage what now?
A) Savage Mojo Ltd is an English-registered company that acts as the place where all the official paperwork gets done for anything to do with all our creative endeavors. At heart we're like a collective of creative people though, people who love making cool arty stuff like novels and paintings, comics and music, games and a whole heap more.
Q) If you're a collective, why have a company?
A) Having a company helps us deal with the tax man, the registrar of businesses, and other officials in the cheapest possible way, which means we can return as much money as possible to the people who are creating all the wonderful content. Fundamentally we're a group of writers, illustrators, editors, designers and other artists, trying to earn enough to pay the rent and feed our kids while working in an environment where we're respected and can create the most outstanding art and entertainment for... you.
Q) So what's your track record?
A) Savage Mojo was previously known as Talisman Studios, and we created games and game accessories. We still do a heap of that, in fact. We love games - they're great for brain development and they're a social experience. We specialize in role-playing games, especially traditional, pen and paper, round the table gaming. Our best known product lines are the based around the Suzerain universe and our Gamescapes game accessories. With Brainradio we're breaking out of that and letting our imaginations run wild. With Brainradio we can develop all manner of things, from fiction to animated movies and into new media that's on the cutting edge of what's available over the internet. It's a sandbox that gives you, the visitor to our site, access to some great art and craft by seasoned professional artists.
Q) Neat, so how does it all work?
A) People have great ideas and talk with other members of our family, then those folks get together in groups where they pool all their skills and make great stuff. Sometimes it's a book. Other times it's a game. Or maybe an animated collection of paintings. Or something else entirely. If you approve of what we're doing, please follow some links and buy a few things. We're putting the things you'll find here on internet stores like Amazon and Cafe Press so you can get them shipped direct to your home. Apart from a small amount for administration and marketing, all the money goes back to those who are entertaining you. We're not asking for donations or handouts, but a purchase or two goes a long way.
Q) Hey, I'm all creative and stuff. How do I join in?
A) Great! If you're interested in joining the core Savage Mojo family, because you're already a creative professional or because you'd like to learn and break into the industry (or just because you'd like to volunteer some time to help spread the word), then please email me at: mmk <at sign> savagemojo dot com to talk about the options. I'm always happy to talk. Whatever your frequenty, I hope you enjoy Brainradio!
