Grey Lotus Version 1.93 sometimes refers to itself internally as "version 2". This major revision of the rules vastly clarifies the mechanics, standardizes processes, and presents a more consistent game.
Character generation remains complex and lengthy. Each Attribute pair (Endurance/Strength, Dexterity/Reflexes, Intelligence/Perception, Willpower/Wisdom, and Charisma/Manipulation) is given a named Attribute Group (respectively: Body, Ability, Mind, Spirit, Social). Skills retain a statistic of Rating and Dice, with Rating (1-10) representing ability and Dice (2-5) representing the dice pool for the Skill. Resolution involves rolling the dice pool, selecting the highest result, and adding it to the Attribute associates with the Skill and the Skill Rank. Dice "explode" on a roll of 10. The final result is compared to a Difficulty Level. The rules support a "Margin of Success" and "Margin of Failure" mechanic.
