"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

GURPS - Illuminati


From the website:

"The Secret Masters have denied all knowledge of the various conspiracy theories put forth in the new GURPS Illuminati.

"To begin with, we don't even exist," said a spokesman. "The Illuminati are a myth." He went on to deny specifically that:
  • Everything you read in the tabloids is true! Aliens regularly visit Earth, and are in contact with high government officials.
  • The Men in Black are everywhere, and will snatch you from your home if you ask too many questions or just see something you shouldn't see.
  • Orbital Mind Control satellites cruise the skies, influencing international politics and deciding the fates of billions.
  • The Gnomes of Zurich control the world's monetary supply, and manipulate it to fit their own sinister plans.
  • The world is such a complex web of secrets, mysteries and conspiracies that nobody really knows what is happening. But everyone in power lies . . . all the time.
  • The only real way to protect yourself is to join the conspiracy. But even then, you'll never know who is pulling your strings.
  • Everything you know is a lie. Everything you suspect is true. The world is a very strange place.
Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!

The publishers of GURPS Illuminati, Steve Jackson Games, admitted that it was a work of fiction, but added, "It's all true anyway! Just look at the book. It's closer than you think."
