Who wants a free test copy of Venture, my tabletop RPG?

It's in a semi-playable state right now but I need more feedback from optimizers and new players alike. In return, I'll add you to a mailing list for free updated versions as the game progresses. When the finished product is out, you will get a PDF of the as well as a voucher for a printed copy (if it ever gets that far.)

It's a fantasy tabletop rpg with a focus on having a strong mechanical backbone to back up narrative driven gameplay. It's definitely a niche product, since it's too crunch-heavy to appeal to the magical teaparty crowd, but too narratively focused to allow the game to run itself.

Notable features:

D6-centric mechanics. No other dice are required.
Bounded accuracy
Point-Buy based character creation and leveling.
Fluff-lite mechanics, allowing powers to be mechanically exact but broad in description.

I like games.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.
