If you want simple try WARP, the system used in OVER THE EDGE, which is now released under OGL.

I've heard good things about OTE, but never played it. That's definitely one to look at.

From the game name, I suspect it's focused on combat, which isn't what I'm looking for. And the site requires registration before downloading anything. And I have a fair-sized pile of systems to check out already... so I'll pass, unless somebody tells me my assumption is wrong.

The game isn't really focused on anything, though the original inspiration might have been over-the-top kung fu fighting. The mechanics work equally well with any sort of conflict - I've played the game with social, technical and combat situations which were resolved by the rules. I've seen game AP reports with all sorts of backgrounds - noir, action, comedy, what have you.

In my opinion, the basic assumptions of the rules are brilliant (and I don't say this lightly). What has kept the game from wider fame is, I fear, prejudice.

I posted the first link which looked workable; I think the original wiki or the creators's page might be down. Anyway, the game is free, so if you PM me your email address, I can legally send you a copy - it's 17 pages, plus an example of play, so the investment in time reading it is modest.

I have an ultra-simplistic game I created that uses only d6s and character sheets designed to fit into card sleeves (for use with dry-erase markers).

It's one page front and back, and only contains the core mechanics, not any monsters or anything.
