The unique features list looks something like this:
- Unified Dice Mechanic – every roll in the game uses the same Fudge/Fate dice roll
- Skill-Based Characters – no classes or professions. PC’s generally consist of Attributes, Skills, Qualities, and Talents.
- Simultaneous Actions Resolution – no initiative rolls. Everything happens simultaneously, with the winners of each Exchange taking their action against the losers of each Exchange.
- No Weapon/Armor Stats Or Damage Rolls – Resolution determined from a single opposed roll
- Non-Linear Wound System – no hitpoints or wound track, uses a threshold system
- Freeform Sorcery System – no spell or ritual lists, Characters create whatever spells and rituals they can think of
- Goal-Based Character Development – Characters earn experience points by accomplishing specific Major and Supporting Goals.
- Abstract Economic System – no more accounting and bookkeeping to account for every copper piece.
- Situational Modifiers – Modifiers are designed to be used where they make sense, allowing GM’s and groups to have more flexibility in resolving conflicts.
- Robust Combat Tactics – From zone-based movement, to combat stances, to combat maneuvers (like tripping, disarming, tackling, etc.), Players can employ advanced tactics and strategies to tip the scales to their favor.
