Steve Jackson Games

From 1d4chan

Steve Jackson Games is often referred to as the 'other' RPG company, behind White Wolf and Wizards of the Coast. Steve Jackson is from Austin, Texas and he is not to be confused with Steve Jackson of the UK based Games Workshop (or Peter Jackson the guy who made the lord of the rings and hobbit movies, nor Gary Jackson who doesn't even exist). His company makes assorted role play games and other tabletop games such as GURPS (Generic Universal Role Play System) and Munchkin card game among other things. The company was formed in 1980, the year of the monkey. A date probably of great significance to the Illuminati masters.

Steve Jackson Games
Year Established 1980
Notable Games GURPS, Munchkin (Card Game)

Over the late 1980s, they ran a BBS. It was called the "Illuminati BBS". As to GURPS, Loyd Blankenship wrote the Cyberpunk book. You're not going to fucking believe what happened next. On the other hand, given the oft-demonstrated competence of Burgerland's investigative agencies lately . . .

The Sooper Sekrit Survice, doing an investigation into cybercrime, deemed the GURPS Cyberpunk book a bible for hackers, and thus going to destabilize the entire known universe. On 1 March 1990, the SS (not that SS, but not for lack of effort) duly raided Steve Jackson Games' HQ, and Blankenship the author's personal domicile. This led to other gaming companies having to explain (say) Grimtooth's Traps, to idiots. SJG went to court and in 1993 actually won damages.
