“The System” universal role playing game

The System universal role playing game was originally designed in late 1985/early 1986 when most games were still genre-specific, and before the first generation universal role playing systems were available on the market. The content of this book was recently rescued from oblivion, given a (very) quick polish to the ruleset, and typeset with a decidedly retro (1st generation) RPG feel to it. If you’re looking for an early-generation RPG ruleset (with all of its quirks and idiosyncrasies), then The System is for you.
