Characters would age during gameplay, and when reaching old age (~75) would die randomly due to natural causes. The spell that reversed this process would usually fail, resulting in increasing your age as opposed to decreasing it. Though paying to visit a health spa on a resort isle could reduce the character's age.
Certain battle situations were unusual, such as the ability to take on an entire goblin village, consisting of over 255 enemies at once, all at the same time. Such mass battles had previously appeared in the Bard's Tale series.
In a departure from the High Fantasy flavour typical for RPGs, the last dungeon requires the PCs to board a spaceship and solve an encrypted message with a time limit in order to escape the planet.
