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:

magic user - strong in magic level and brains, weak in other areas. Must rely on wits and magic to survive.

fighter - good in strength and speed. This adds up to a character well-equipped to fight but poor in magic and brains.

elf - very high quickness and above average magic level are elves selling points. Although weak in energy, elves are immune to the plague.

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:

Type Strength Quick Mana Energy Brains Magic
Mag. User 12-22 29-33 50-100 40-60 40-63 5-10
Fighter 25-50 33-37 30-45 50-75 10-20 2-4
Elf 10-14 36-40 40-75 30-50 30-50 4-8
Dwarf 20-40 26-30 35-60 70-100 20-35 3-6
Halfling 16-34 31-35 25-30 60-85 50-80 1-2
Experimento 25 33 40 60 40 4

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.

Type Strength Mana Energy Brains Magic
Mag. User 2.5 80 20 4.5 3.0
Fighter 5.5 35 25 2 1.5
Elf 1 65 15 4 2.5
Dwarf 7 50 35 3 2
Halfling 4 20 30 6 1
