This is delightfully weird! Great minimalistic character sheet too.

I love this ruleset! Thank you for posting it. I would say to anyone reading this, that this is probably the best rules light game I have seen for running scenarios written in other game systems because converting stats or anything like that isn't needed to play a pre-written adventure.
I wrote a longer review over on my blog. But I think this is a steal at $1.00.
