Default SJG Triangle...what does it mean...? ;-)

So is it a gold or a bronze?

Is it the Propaganda and Communications i can't seem to get away from....

Or is it more of a bronze color so Mind control is taking effect....

Either way I am falling into the abyss.

I think first and foremost it is a pyramid, with an eye in it. That's an old symbol (possibly ancient, possibly merely old), that means something, but I'm much less qualified to speak about that than many of the others on here.

As for the colour, I think that's just their choice of colour scheme, golden/orange/yellow, for this website. I vaguely recall that their "Fnord - page not found" 404-substitution page uses the same pyramid but in red (on a black background). Maybe elsewhere SJ Games has used the pyramid in other colours.

If I think about such things, I must do it in the oblique, otherwise the titanium implant in my head makes me think of 'other' things. Sometimes our secret world gov't tells me where the parades are.

I love a parade. Fm about 3 stories up, at a 45 degree....oh, ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice.....a nice chianti....the SUX 6000 can hold 6 fully equipped Blue Blazer Irregulars and still get 6 miles to the gallon....golli gang gooley!

Its called the eye of providence, and is part of the Great Seal.

SJG's original logo was based on the Great Walrus...

But then something happened, I may have already said too much....

If you have to ask, all I can say is...

You're Not Cleared For That.

I shall not here repeat the original language of the trademark application, but translated, it reads:

Three sides for the product lines most people try,
Seven foundation blocks solid as stone,
Nine courses atop for gamers doomed to buy,
One Eye for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Austin where the offices lie.

If I were to tell you, it would invoke terrible consequences, not only on yourself, but those you love.
