This game has an interesting structure, but I am concerned about the action resolution mechanic. In order to have any level of success in a roll, you need to roll doubles on a pair of d8s. A player would only have a 12.5% success of doing this. A Full or Critical success is significantly lower. There are ways to increase these chances, but they require taking advantage of undead type bonuses or a limited pool of points.
While this may match the intended stye of play the creator was going for, I would be concerned that this puts the range of success too far out of reach to be enjoyable for my usual group of players.
