I tried my hand at a Simple Combat System, as I noticed not many 'Free' Systems Exist for people. I am a noob coder, so this was good practice in any event, I imagine. It DOES work and hasn't caused my test MUSH to crash horribly in the past two days I've been coding it!
Anyways this system is meant to be simple. I accomplished that. But it also has a few features that are in more modern systems, such the ability to 'boss up' to take on multiple players, and switch between +forms (armor forms, etc.).
More or less, it compares a might and defense value, and rolls a die. if it fails, you miss. if it hits, you do 1 point of damage to the opponent. Since damage is usually measured on a 1 to 6 number from an Endurance Stat, doing high numbers of damage isn't needed.
It uses Attribute trees to store information. I know this is not the most efficient way of doing things, but it's the one I understand most.
I coded this over the course of.... lessee... about 11-15 hours in two days. Out of Boredom. Just to see if I was capable of something more complex than listing players or what not. So I'm releasing it publicly to folks to use if they really want to.

UPDATE: I added some things, and cleaned it up, just a bit. It's now in version 4 I'm probably not going to work on this too much unless it needs glaring fixes.
UPDATE 2: Thanks to Wiggles for Improvement Suggestions, mainly, reducing the CPU intensive pmatch'ing, Player Connection Check, and whatnot.
UPDATE 3: I lied. Worked on it more. Added some Passive and Active Abilities to it: http://pastebin.com/z00rBgLr.
