Characters in the game have four Attributes (Brawn, Finesse, Heart, and Mind) which have values distributed from a point pool. Action resolution uses a dice pool based on the relevant Attribute, with each "1" counting as a success. A table determines the type of dice to be rolled (D4, D6, D8, etc.) based on the attempted action's difficulty.
Characters must select a Lineage (Angel, Changeling, Demon, etc.) which will yield a single special trait and general characterization. A (concise) bestiary also is provided. The third page of the document presents a character sheet.
