I hadn't noticed this mentioned on the board so I thought I'd pass it along. I just found thus a few days ago. It's sort of a reimagined chainmail fleshed out as a role playing game. Pretty interesting stuff.

I refereed Platemail twice last year. Character generation is very funny (although, one may want to let re-roll absolutely useless characters), the skirmish and duelling combat systems are easy to handle, and the spells (along with the rules for casting them) are gorgeous. I can only recommend it.
I've been scouring the internet for a month or so now, trying to find any updates or contact the original creator, and it seems this is the latest version still. I joined this board specifically to see if anyone else has any leads on this? I'm rather taken with this game and I'd love to see it completed.
We very much enjoyed the basic mechanics, but for us it was the spell list that was the least polished. I think it could be easily redesigned for various styles but as it is, makes great rules for the old dungeon crawls.
