the LaTeX format made me want it.
A downloadable game
Equa! is an very minimal OSR adjacent game system for tabletop role playing games. The whole of the game is formatted as a small set of equations that represent the mechanics of play, how you use them is up to you.
This is about as minimal and esoteric as a game can get.
It has it. 3 whole stats.
A very minimal way to resolve combat damage!
Yes, of sorts.
Will this work with X module I have?
I don't know, maybe, try it out.
Does this have X mechanic in it?
No, it doesn't.

I have a question, though. If any of your 3 stats is determined by a d6 roll, it may happen that you roll a 6, and thus any action related to this stat would result in a success, because tn will always be lower or equal to a d6 roll.
how would you solve this equation?
I have actually fixed this now.
I also flipped the equation so that it is d6 < tn which makes more sense than tn < d6, making it that the higher tn the better you are at the task rather than the other way round.
The way I had it was fun but it also made y ou get exponentially better as your Brawn decreased through damage.
Thanks for your interest.
mmmmm now you have another problem if a player rolls a 1 as any of their stats. They can't succeed. But that might be "by design" (poor PCs)
Yes, it’s by design.
It’s rather a better “balance” that a character be bad enough at something to not be able to do it than it is to be awesome and never fail.
With an Acrobatics of 1 a player will still be adept enough to run, roll and jump as normal, but trying to pirouette on a balance beam is always going to be a failure.
Oh this has my attention and now I want to drop all my projects to hack on this!
Any thoughts about releasing the original LaTeX file?
