Character creation is incredibly simple: you have 10 dice to put into your Talents (which cover both skills and statistics) or hit points. You get five Knacks, which are aptitudes for a Talent that fall short of actual training. You take a Fault, and you can take up to two more Faults, gaining two extra Talent dice for each Fault.
Resolving a task is a little more complicated. First, you take two dice (Vampire Hunter$ uses 6-sided dice exclusively)--you always get 2 dice--add any dice for your Talent, roll them and add them. If any dice came up matching, you reroll them and add them, continuing if they match again.
