An old school style, percentile-based, RPG Hack100 is now available for free.
The 35+ page PDF is black and white, illustrated and lays out a straightforward and flexible system. While the game nods towards OSR, it also dumps lists of professions, skills, powers and even monsters and leans towards freeform and collaboration.
Hack100 has a classic d100 system that maps easily onto most genres. The free download has rules for character generation and progress, tasks and test resolution, combat and special powers such as magic.
Hack100 is a system in which characters can be created in minutes and the vast majority of in-game actions are covered by around a dozen, rather than dozens of, skills. It is also very flexible, eschewing standard lists of professions, skills, spells and monsters in favour of a freeform approach.
The PDF is free, and there’s a $5 print option from Lulu. Print seems to be fitting as we’re told that the PDF is intended to be printed as a double-sided A5 booklet. There are even blank pages in the PDF to line up covers.
