Alpha Chronicles boasts a detailed and extensive skill system which will allow players to fully flesh out their characters, including many skills not found in other game systems.
Fully tailoring your character is easy with Alpha Chronicles' system of options and powers. You select which powers you want, and how much of your character to devote to that power. You can play a character entirely focused upon a single power, or diversify into several weaker powers: the choice is always yours! In Alpha Chronicles, powers are rarely static. You decide how to improve them as your character advances in experience.
The Alpha Chronicles rules are dynamic but easy to understand. Everything in the system uses a set of percentile dice (“d10s”).

You will only rarely be focused upon a set of charts or diagrams to determine is the action was successful.
