From the Designer's Website:
User Translation from French:
("Totémique" is French for "Totemic".)
Characters have 10 points to distribute between three attributes: corps (body), esprit (spirit), vie (life). Vie is a measure of health and is not used to determine actions. Characters also each have an animal totem through which they may invoke magical powers.
Task resolution is performed by rolling a number of six-sided dice equal to the appropriate attribute value, keeping the single best die roll. To this roll, add 2 if a double was rolled, 3 if a triple was rolled, etc. (regardless of whether these were of the same value as the highest die roll or not). If the result is equal to or higher than a target difficulty number (or an opponent's result if in an opposed action) then the character is successful.
