All characters in the game are performers of some sort. Characters have two Attributes, Abandon and Stillness, which provide a potential bonus to action resolution die rolls. Abandon represents raw, creative energy. Stillness represents control and measured focus. During play, characters also track two additional traits - Dream and Nightmare - that reflect their metaphysical progress as a performer.
The game is played in phases called, appropriately, Acts. Additionally, the game document is formatted somewhat like a playbill or script, which is a nice presentation touch.
