McKagan Productions, or MKP, is a publishing company run and founded by Nults McKagan. It was founded after Nults McKagan decided that no currently-existing publishing company was suitable to publish his first major fanon, In Too Deep.
McKagan Productions originally only published POTC-related fanon, but due to the allowance of new games, MKP now also publishes works about any games approved to be on the wiki.
