Hi Jabier,
I did work a bit more on the ruleset but that is not yet ready for prime time. However, the ruleset as it is perfectly playable. I use it for my own group.
Basically, the ruleset is layered on top of the Core ruleset so everything you have available in Core is also available here plus Abilities & Specialities rolling as defined in the Chronicle System rules. Just double-click a Speciality "number" and it will roll the Ability & Speciality and drop appropriately.
You can also roll dice by entering a command in the chat, e.g. something like /roll 5d6k2 = Roll 5 six-sides dices, keep 2.

Have fun!
