Characters in the game have three Attributes - Body, Mind, and Special. Each has a numeric score designating how many dice are associated with its dice pool. Action resolution uses dice pool rolls with results of 6 counting as one success. Multiple successes are needed for more difficult tasks. The game also uses a rule of matching dice results for exceptionally difficult situations (e.g., n of a kind).
The Special Attribute can be decomposed into specific Skills if desired. Characters acting together can pool their dice into "one big pool" for an action.
