Simple 10 is intended to be an easy system of universal resolution for role-playing that allows the focus to be placed on characters and actions instead of mechanics. In general, all action resolution involves rolling a D10, applying modifiers, and comparing to a target difficulty.
Characters are built from Point Pools. Each character has three Attributes (Body, Mind, Spirit) with a Score ranging from -5 to +5; the human average is 0. Characters also have Abilities which describe everything else a character can do. Abilities also have numeric scores running from 0 (Novice) to 5 (Grand Master).
