This is a rules-light (38 pages of rules) RPG that intends to be a scifi version of the 1974 OD&D, and succeeds admirably. The core mechanics (class-based, ascending AC, d20/d6, roll high) are based on Swords & Wizardry Whitebox, but there is a lot that is unique in this game, including a class-based skill system, a critical hit table, monster creation rules, and a simple spaceship combat system. It's just about the perfect amount of information for a GM to get a game up and running in an hour or so (that includes reading the rules), with no gaps in the core gameplay but plenty of room for house-ruling and expansion. Old-school GMs will feel right at home. The introductory adventure, Cleopatra Station (http://www.rpgnow.com/product/95003/Cleopatra-Station), is an excellent introduction to the game and I highly recommend using it or a recently published quickstart adventure (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzHniBXLE3GgbG1XZzVkT-

) the first time you play. Both are free.
