Unlike Steffan, I will plug my own homebrew system

Strike Force is a bit of a spiritual successor to the old TSR Star Frontiers (which was our favorite sci-fi game growing up). It's got a very old-school feel so be warned - it's heavily steeped in the tradition of the old TSR games.

The retroclone of the original three-booklet D&D. "Standard" Swords & Wizardry includes some of the material from the early D&D supplements. There is a white box edition that is strictly a remake of the original three books

There are also free "retroclones" of Basic D&D (Labyrinth Lord) and AD&D1 (OSRIC).

While this is a "quickstart module," it includes a fully playable subset of the T&T 5th edition rules, sufficient for playing most of the solos and for playing very rules-light FTF. Availablr via DriveThoughRPG.com.

Violence: The Roleplaying Game of Egregious and Repulsive Bloodshed is a short, 32-page roleplaying game written by Greg Costikyan under the pseudonym "Designer X" and published by Hogshead Publishing as part of its New Style line of games. Violence is a parody of conventional dungeon-bashing games, being set in a contemporary metropolis where player characters run from room to room killing the occupants and stealing their stuff. It is relentlessly user-hostile, taking time out to insult the reader wherever possible (it opens with the words "Welcome to Violence, you degraded turd"), and uses a mechanic whereby experience points can be bought for hard cash from the designer or publisher. Despite innovative games design and exhaustive lists of equipment and weapons (including both belt and orbital sanders), monster types, and possible scenarios, it is largely and deliberately unplayable.

This is from the description of the entry. Interesting read.

Haven't read it yet, here is an excerpt from the intoduction:

Although WR&M uses the three archetypal roles of classic role playing games in its title, it doesn’t make use of classes. Players can freely create characters as they see fit without having to press them into the tight corset of character classes.

Warrior, Rogue and Mage are actually the characters’ basic attributes, which measure their capabilities in combat, stealth and academics respectively.

You can download the core rulebook of CJ Carella's Witchcraft from Eden Studios website in PDF format, completely free.

http://www.edenstudios.net/witchcraft/

It uses the Unisystem - same as All Flesh Must Be Eaten - and is quite entertaining too!

one cool thing about the system: the better you describe your attack scene, the more dice you get to roll ninja
