Caller’s Bane (originally known as Scrolls) is another Mojang game which was first conceived and developed by Jakob Porsér, with Måns Olson and Henrik Pettersson joining later on. Announced on March 2, 2011, it aims to combine elements from trading card games and traditional board game in the strategy genre.
In August 2011, Mojang had been threatened with legal action by the legal team representing ZeniMax Media, with the accusation being that the original title "Scrolls" infringes on the The Elder Scrolls trademark, a series of role-playing video games published by Bethesda Softworks (a ZeniMax Media subsidiary). In mid-October 2011, the court case was won by Mojang, and one employee described the outcome as "the court saw it from our side". No further action was taken against Mojang, and the name "Scrolls" was allowed to remain.
The game was first made available to a limited number of people through alpha keys giveaways, starting from July 5, 2012. It then hit beta on June 3, 2013 since when it is purchasable at a discounted price. The game was fully released on December 12, 2014, but on June 29th, 2015, Mojang announced that development of Scrolls would cease as "the game has reached a point where it can no longer sustain continuous development". Servers for the game didn’t shut down, however, until February 13, 2018.
On June 20, 2018, it was announced the the game would be released for free the same day, along with changing the name from Scrolls to Caller’s Bane.
