Some of you may or may not be aware that some time ago...damn...a year or more now? Phil Reed offered to "clone" the most "marvelous" superhero RPG of all time, for a supporter fee. So he started a fund and reached his projected fund in no time, wrote the game, and released it to the public domain.
I'm sure most old-schoolers are familiar with the original game, but I think overall the 4C system has kind of fallen under the radar. You can download it here:

You can also buy a hard copy at cost from Lulu.
There is a small amount of publisher support for the system as well...

The reason I bring this up is that the Old-School Renaissance must not be focused solely on fantasy games. There are many other great old-school games out there, and the 4C System is just one example. It is a simple, fun game which I would like to support also. I think it is ripe for customizing into other other non-superhero genre games as well. I see no reason we couldn't have a FASERIP Fantasy, Sci-Fi, etc.
Anyway, just a heads up to anyone who missed this. I started a section on my forums where people can discuss this game. It's funny (ironic) that the community paid Phil Reed a few thousand dollars, if memory serves, to produce this game...and it has pretty much stagnated.
