In The Sanguine Dynasty the players, as child members of the Resistance, have a collective goal of removing the Emperor without destroying the Empire. Characters have four Attributes (Cunning, Finesse, Grace, and Vitality). Attributes have values assigned from a standard array of 2, 1, 1, 0. Characters also have Health and Stability, which both are set at 5. Opposed actions and combat utilize a modified 2D6, with a final result of 7 or lower indicating failure; 8-10 indicating a weak success; and 11+ indicating complete success.
