Phantasia characters have only one chance in life. Although your character is saved in a common file when you leave the game via the quit button, it is removed when restored with the proper password, and can not be re-restored if the character dies. In addition, the save file is frequently purged of inactive characters.
When the client and the server disconnect, the game saves your characters as soon as possible. If you are in combat, your character will leave when you get a chance to attack and a fresh monster will be summoned upon return. If you return to find your character gone, then you had no chances to attack. In a battle with another player, the game will try to evade until you are free of the battle or dead.
All phantasia characters have a distinctive class. In addition to attributes, this character class also determines how much gold a player may carry, how long until rings can overcome the player, and how much mana the character can have. The current classes are:
dwarf - very high energy level and strength, but with a tendency to be extremely slow and not too bright. The tank of characters, dwarves regenerate energy at a slightly faster rate than any other class.
halfling - very smart backed up with good combat abilities, but poor in magic. The halfling excels through the use of luckout and tends to lead a charmed life when it comes to deflecting special attacks. Born with some experience.
experimento - mediocre in all areas. However, the experimento may begin the game placed almost anywhere within 2000 distance of the origin and uses the fewest charms to block special attacks.
Each character class starts off with base statistics. These attributes are rolled randomly from the following list:
Not only are the starting characteristics different for the various character types, the characteristics progress at different rates for each class type as the character goes up in level. An experimento's characteristics progress randomly as one of the other class types. The progression as characters increase in level is summarized in the following table.
