minimald6 is a rules-lite generic system that's making (admittedly small) waves at the moment. Within only a few weeks, 18 games have been published based on minimald6.

All you need to play are 3d6. Create a character in less than 5 minutes, and then dive right in.

And best of all: No math. The rules get out of the way.  

They facilitate quick play and immersion.
It's reasy to write and publish own material for minimald6.

I applaud the elegant simplicity and scope of the minimald6 rules, a creative catalyst with a generous Creative Commons licence. Played it, loved it, got me writing games. It'll get you tinkering with rules and settings : )

Great little system! A framework where you can hang all your genre goodies on, and have it work. Fast and intuitive, I dig it!

For some reason the site won't let me rate this even though I downloaded it. This is a super simple, fun, and hackable system using only a few six-sided dice. There is a vibrant community growing up around it and writing games for it, partly because the system designer has put it out there as a CC-BY. Some Minimal d6 games include Thronelands, Space Trucker, Flash Fantasy, Simple Feng, etc.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
