Do yourself a favor and get this game.

Best RPG Ever Made!!!

I cannot stress just how awesome this game is! It is so well written and super funny! You'll laugh out loud the whole game! It has a classic turn-based battle system. There are a fixed amount of random battles per area, but you can force fights even when there are not any random battles left in that area. This way you can level up until you get bored of grinding battles. I don't think there is a level cap. My characters are well into their 50th levels.

There aren't a lot of weapons and items, but the ones you get are awesome! You will end up building a super strong party. You'll have more characters than you can bring into battle, but all characters get experience points from battles and level up together. Part of the strategy of the game is choosing the right characters for the right battles.
