Steve Perrin is a game designer and technical writer/editor.

Perrin is probably best known for creating the role-playing game RuneQuest for Chaosium. While at Chaosium he also created Stormbringer, Worlds of Wonder, Elfquest, and Superworld, and contributed to Thieves World and Call of Cthulhu.

He worked at Interplay Productions, Maxis, and Spectrum Holobyte, doing game design, playtesting, and writing manuals for such computer games as Starfleet Academy, Sim City 2000, and Flight of the Intruder to name but a few. He has also worked freelance for many of the major players in the games industry including TSR, FASA, Hero, West End Games, and Iron Crown Enterprises.

Steve Perrin's Quest Rules (SPQR) is the latest Steve Perrin role-playing game, which he sells independently through Chaos Limited. He recently also designed Black 9 Ops as a paper and pencil accompaniment to Taldren Inc.'s Black9 computer game, which fell afoul of developer-publisher friction and now looks to be unlikely to be published. Perrin decided to make Black 9 Ops available for free.

Perrin earned a BA in English from San Francisco State University.
