After delving through the dungeons of OSR I haven't yet found a treasure hoard more valuable than Swords & Wizardry Light.
There are so many riches and gems inside these two pages (four pages when printed and bound together). The simplicity of this system is perfect. There is just enough information for a solid foundation with plenty of room to make it your own.
With this system you get all the information you need to take the four key classes from level one to level three.
The four classes are The Fighter, The Cleric, The Magic-User and The Thief.
Included are eighteen monsters from the minor foes such as goblins to the mighty foes such as wyverns. A nice mixture of humanoids, undead and monstrous creatures.
The combat rules include both ascending armor class and descending armor class.
This system is perfect for both one-shots and long-term campaigns. The rules are simple enough for anyone to pick up and run a game (including my 11-year-old daughter). And it is free so what are you waiting for!?
