Attributes and skills are assigned different types of dice. During character creation, the dice for the five attributes can be distributed from a fixed pool (1d8, 3d6, 1d4), or may be rolled up using a d20 roll on a table. Skills ranks (called marks) give one or more dice to roll a given skill. The player can distribute a number of points freely to the skills available. There are also "gifts", special abilities that come with the race and career you choose. Additionally, a number of gifts can be picked freely from the list.
Actions are resolved by rolling the dice of an attribute or skill against a target number that is either set by the GM or a result of an opposing roll.
