From the Designer's Website:
Une station spatiale mystérieuse où règnent les apparences...
User Translation from French:
A mysterious space station where appearance rules...
("Venezia Cinquemille" is Italian/French for "Venice Five-Thousand".)
Characters have three traits (one of which is chosen as their major trait) and a mask type that is treated as a trait and allows the use of certain extraordinary powers.
Action resolution is performed by rolling six-sided dice:
- Roll 1 die if the character has no applicable trait.
- Roll 2 dice if the character has at least one applicable trait.
- Roll 3 dice if the character has an applicable major trait.
The mask trait adds an additional die if used.
The single best die roll is kept. To this roll, add 1 if a double was rolled, or 2 if a triple was rolled, or 3 if a quadruple was rolled (regardless of whether these were of the same value as the highest die roll or not). The final result is compared against a target difficulty level or an opposed roll.
