From the introduction:
Two Fisted Tales is a role playing game which attempts to simulate the fast and outrageous action of the pulp magazines. It uses a simple system for character creation, combining the flexibility of a point system and the convenience of character templates. It also features a very fast, "cinematic," one-roll combat system.
The original version of Two Fisted Tales was published in HTML and offered online as a free product. The materials were presented in sixteen main HTML pages ("Chapters") divided into two main sections - "The Hero Book" (character creation) and "The Action Book" (game system). The original materials were removed prior to the commercial publication of the second edition.
