The West End Games system uses six-sided dice exclusively. Each of six attributes has a die code and several skills. The skills can be improved with character points. Players roll the appropriate die code to attempt to beat either a difficulty number set by the Game Master, or an opponent's skill roll.
Playing Jedi characters is very difficult, but can be very rewarding.
