I want to hold off on a full review until I have some time to run it under my belt, but if you're looking for a new fantasy RPG that isn't super-heavy on rules, I'd encourage you to download the free Warrior, Rogue, and Mage (WR&M) RPG. Written by Michael Wolf of Stargazer's World, you build characters based on a mix of the three archetypes named in the product's title.
Here's a quote:
A character with a high rank in Warrior is a born fighter: strong, tough, and fearless. Characters with a low rank in this attribute will be weaker and less daring. Someone with a high Rogue attribute is witty, stealthy and quick with feet and mind, but a low Rogue attribute means the character is clumsy and inept. A highly ranked Mage attribute is a sign of intelligence, strength of will and mental discipline, whereas a low Mage attribute means the character is dull, flighty and easily influenced.
It's a tight little system, and Michael shows his crazy-good layout skills all the way through.
In any case, if you're looking for a little light reading on the way to or waiting for Gen Con, WR&M is the way to go--happily enough, it's also released under a Creative Commons license!
