Originally created by the now defunct Canadian gaming company Guardians of Ordernow owned by White Wolf ‘s indie sub-company Arthaus.
The first edition of BESM was a bit of a clusterfuck, as it was GoO’s first release, but unlike many companies’ first releases, it was still playable and fun. BESM saw many revisions via fanguides that packed in a modified version of the core BESM rules and special setting specific character creation rules.
It also reworded many of the rules and abilities to make them clearer and easier to understand. Later came a revised book that updated the core rules with three years worth of errata, as well as the crunch from many their various genre books, such as Hot Rods and Gun Bunnies and Cute and Fuzzy Cockfighting Seizure Monsters.

During the time of the revised second edition, to jump on the bandwagon of the d20 SRD craze, they released an abhorrently broken BESMd It also saw the creation of Mecha d There were also d20 fanguides created for Hellsing and Trigun. The game is currently dead, the most recent iteration being the third edition of the core Tri-stat system-based game. Its biggest change was a reconstruction of the point system, and inversion of the dice mechanic, from a roll-under to a roll-over system.
BESM third edition was licensed and its printed stock was purchased by White Wolf’s imprint Arthaus, who went on to sell the stock and keep a token subpage on their website dedicated to it for a time.
Currently there are only a scant few traces of BESM anywhere on White Wolf’s main site, and they made it clear that they are not intending to support the system in any way, effectively killing the game. The White Wolf wiki has two entries about the game, one detailing the history game license, another the setting seed from third edition. Ads by Project Wonderful!
