Warrior, Rogue & Mage from Stargazer Games is a free, lightweight fantasy RPG. Its a complete game in all of 40 pages, including setting.
In this game, the classic class names from fantasy RPGs are instead your attributes. Once you wrap your head around that a few times you'll be fine.
In simplest terms, Warrior defines your combat abilities, Rogue your stealth and Mage your academic / magical abilities. Add in skills (that are linked to your attributes) and talents and you've pretty much defined your character.
Simple games can be a lot of fun, but they take the correct group. A 40 page PDF is not going to cover all possibilities, so common sense and GM fiat may be needed at times. Still, for a quick and easy system Warrior, Rogue & Mage reminds me in ways of Ancient Odysseys - both games are easy to pick up and get gaming with pretty quickly.
Decent layout and nice enough artwork makes this a keeper. Warrior, Rogue & Mage is released under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
