If you're happy to use a virtual dice roller to substitute for the dice that aren't d6's, you could just play D&D. (Widely known as a D&D-like game.) The Basic Rules for D&D 5e are available here for free, and can be used to play a game of D&D without any further material required. If you're looking for adventures as well as a game system, ...

(Edited to meet revised question: all of the systems I've left listed allow you to add an "objectively evil" aspect into the setting and deliberately frame the morality mechanics around it as needed.) Sorcerer Sorcerer is one of the strongest games to deal with morality in a pretty interesting fashion. First, you define "humanity" as the moral aspects you ...

Dogs in the Vineyard is the first game I think of when asked for an RPG that brings moral choices front and centre. The mechanics push for character growth, and moral issues is something the GM is pushed towards to challenge the players. Dogs in the Vineyard is all about asking moral questions. The default setting of the game is something like this: Out ...

Since the point of that generator is that it's a creatively-lampooning mashup of genres that otherwise never meet, your only real recourse, if you want to expand on the creative mashup, is to grab material and mash it up. If you're not familiar with the earthier side of American life, you've got some research to do. Watch some films set in modern American ...

Pendragon has personality as one of the central mechanics. There are 13 pairs of traits that represent opposite sides of some dimension of personality (e.g. Chaste / Lustful). There are various ways game mechanics use these traits - for example there is a system for verbal conflicts where strength of personality determines the winner, and players use ...

The Star Wars: Force and Destiny RPG from Fantasy Flight Games has a good mechanic for Force users, which could easily be adapted to other systems. Every Force-using character has a Morality rating, which can range from 0 (fully dark-side) to 100 (fully light-side). New characters start at 50 Morality (neutral), though players have the option of starting at ...

Nicolai Grunnett compiled a great list of various games on his blog. On this page (or this archived page, if the original is gone) you find stuff like Sasserinian Roulette The Egg hunt Dragon Tossing Dragon Shooting Catch the Greased Dragon Tug-o-war and many others. Most of these do not only have some description, but even exact rules which you can ...

Tunnels & Trolls One of the early siblings to D&D and hasn't seen too much change over the years. It's got about 7+ editions now, though they're pretty close in style all around. They've got the basic rules out for free, though the newest version isn't that expensive. It uses all D6s (albeit, several of them). There is a few places with ...

From looking at that generator it's not all that modern - it's not medieval, but it seems pretty Civil War-compatible with the exception of the occasional mention of a car or crystal meth. I would thus use: Deadlands Deadlands is a Wild West + magic and fantasy game set in a post-stalled-Civil War America. A gamer in our group just borrowed my sizable ...

Well, while not exactly fantasy you can go with the old "Vampire the Masquerade" (if you prefer the medieval background there is "Vampire the Dark Ages"), where each of the Kindred has to keep his Humanity intact or they will turn into monstrous beast... and at the same time they have to feed. And beast is hungry... always hungry. Besides such thing can be ...

The Fantasy Trip is a simple system, that uses only d6. I seem to recall that someone had developed a free-but-compatible system a few years ago. I believe this is a link to it. The game was originally published as small pamphlets in the late 70s, and the rules are easy to learn. It might meet your needs.
