OVERVIEW

Fantasy Dimension is a dark fantasy turn based tactical game.

Main focus of the game is:
- turn based tactical combat with various movement options for each character
- custom character creation allowing any combination of traits, skills and spells to create your own classes
- imagination evoking line art graphics done in the style of antique and vintage books

Note that the game might be difficult, otherwise it could not be called tactical game.
To win battles, it requires:
- smart move choices
- good tactics
- thinking ahead
- planning every move

PARTY MANAGEMENT

PARTY TYPE

"Choose Characters" - is an option highly recommended to new players. It offers ready characters that can be added to the party.

"Create Characters" - is an option for experienced players that want to create own classes from the scratch by combining any traits, skills and spells. Be warned that wrong creation may result in unbalanced character that is not much useful during battles.

CHOOSE CHARACTERS

You are free to combine party members as you like.
You can create a party with six close combat fighters or six spell casters, but the question is how enjoyable it is and how well balanced.
Choosing different classes makes the game more interesting by offering you various move choices and tactics.
Different enemies or combat situations may show advantage and disadvantage for each class.
Character look and name can be changed any time you visit "The Academy" in The Town.
After you choose all six characters for your party, click "Ok" to go to party formation screen.

Close combat characters:
- "Heroic Swordsman" - is primarly focused on two handed swords. This character has best chance to hit in close combat with a weapon.
- "Heroic Defender" - is primarly focused on one handed swords and shields. This character has best defense in close combat.
- "Heroic Axeman" - is primarly focused on two handed axes. This character has best damage in close combat (but weakest chance to hit).
- "Heroic Paladin" - is primarly focused on one handed swords and shields, and secondary on healing abilities. This character has good defense in close combat and can support health of other characters if needed.
- "Heroic Monk" - is primarly focused on martial arts. This character has best chance to hit in close combat without weapon and chance to stun enemy (but weakest damage).
- "Heroic Battlemage" - is primarly focused on two handed swords, and secondary on damaging spells. This character has good chance to hit in close combat with a weapon and is able to reach every enemy or target multiple enemies with less damaging powers if needed.

Ranged combat characters:
- "Heroic Ranger" - is primarly focused on bows. This character can do lower damage than close combat characters, but is able to reach every enemy with high chance to hit and modification options to shot.
- "Heroic Bard" - is primarly focused on bows, and secondary on affecting spells. This character can do lower damage than close combat characters, but is able to reach every enemy with high chance to hit or improve other characters with his powers if needed.

Spell casting characters:
- "Heroic Sorcerer" - is primarly focused on damaging spells. This character can do lower damage than close combat characters, but is able to reach every enemy or target multiple enemies.
- "Heroic Druid" - is primarly focused on affecting and healing spells. This character can not do much direct damage to enemy, but is able to support party in various ways.
- "Heroic Cleric" - is primarly focused on healing and divine spells. This character can support health of other characters and also damage any enemy with his holy powers.
- "Heroic Enchanter" - is primarly focused on affecting spells. This character can not do much direct damage to enemy, but is able to improve other characters with his enchanting powers.

Tips:
- characters who are using spells as their secondary abilities are less effective (higher chance that spell will fail) than typical spell casters
- spell casters can reach multiple enemies, but with less damage than other character types
- spell casters are able to support party in various ways, not only by direct damage
- ranged combat characters have better damage rating to single enemies than spell casters, and can reach enemies with various immunity
- it is good to have three close combat characters
- it is good to have one character with healing abilities (especially typical spell caster)

PARTY FORMATION

Select character and then position to move.
Front formation (top line) is best position for close combat characters.
Back formation (bottom line) is best position for ranged combat and spell casting characters.
Party formation can be changed any time you choose "Party Management" in The Inn.

ITEM MANAGEMENT

Items between party members can be exchanged any time you choose "Party Management" in The Inn.
To do so, click on item in character "inventory" or "Equipment".
It will be moved to "Store".
Click on arrow buttons near character portrait to switch to other character, and then click on item in "Store" to pick it up.
Note that items that left in "Store" might be lost after leaving The Inn.
It is not possible to exchange items during combat, but you can switch character weapons and use other items from his inventory.

Note that replaced character and all his items will be lost.

If you want to create own new characters or start from the beginning, then you must create whole new party by choosing "New Party".

 

CHARACTER CREATION

CREATE CHARACTERS

"Create Characters" is an option for experienced players that want to create own classes from the scratch by combining any traits, skills and spells.
Be warned that wrong creation may result in unbalanced character that is not much useful during battles.
Creating own characters is not recommended for new players.
They should use "Choose Characters" option to add ready characters to their party.

When you create new character, you will be asked to choose his look first.
You need to create six party members before game begins, so creating may took some time.

CHARACTER TRAITS

They are already set for ready characters.
Some of them may cost more than 1 trait point.
Each character has 4 trait points to spend.

- traits, skills and spells can be reset only at first creation of each character with "Reset" button at bottom left corner

CHARACTER SKILLS

Skills are abilities that can be set at beginning of character creation and can be improved in later game.
Most skills are already set for ready characters, but there is still a place to add few more.
First level of skill always costs more skill points than later improvements.
Skill points can be gained by conscious characters for victorious battle.
Characters that were removed from battlefield will not get them for this battle.
To use skill points and improve each character, visit "The Academy" in The Town.
All party skill points can be also sold for teaching others.
Passive skill description explains how the character is affected per passive skill level (example: One Handed Sword (2) means +20% hit and +10% damage).
Active skill description explains how the character is affected if this action skill will be chosen during battle (example: Accurate Hit (2) means basic attack and +8 hit) and how long is cool down (example: Accurate Hit (2) means 8 -1 so this action can be used again after 7 turns instead of 8 at first level).
Active skills in comparision to passive skills, are not more effective per level, but have lower cool down, which means that the higher their level is, the more often they can be used during battle (less turns are needed to be able to use them again).

- combining close combat with ranged combat skills for one character is not recommended for not experienced players, but it is good to have alternative weapon to use for specific moments during combat (example: fighter can shot ranged enemies and archer can hit close ones, but both with less effectiveness)
- if close or ranged combat skills are combined with spells for one character, it is recommended for not experienced players to use spells as secondary options (and do not invest in "Powerful" trait)

CHARACTER SPELLS

Most spells are already set for ready characters, but there is still a place to add few more.
Spells can be set or improved with the same skill points that are used for skills.
First level of spell always costs more skill points than later improvements.
Spells are working in similar way like action skills.
Spell description explains how the target is affected if this spell will be choosen during battle (example: Fire Ball (2) means 1-12 fire damage to target) and how long is cool down (example: Fire Ball (2) means 6 -1 so this action can be used again after 5 turns instead of 6 at first level).

THE TOWN

THE INN

The Inn is a place to get tasks, manage your party or take a break.
Very important is to use "Sleeping" if you want to save your current game progress or just exit the game.
If you are new player, then you can ask innkeeper for hints (each time you click "Hints" button, you get different hint that might be useful for you).
If you are looking for some break from battles, then you can read fantasy related jokes, request a song or try your luck with dice game for coins.
If you are looking for taks (known also as quests), then you should take a look at task board.
You can accept up to 3 tasks from 5 available, but you can also reject already accepted.
Tasks are appearing randomly and are changing when you back from the battle.
To complete the task, you must first think which location you should visit from "The Gate".
If you succeed, then you will receive additional coins for your efforts right after you back.
If you need to exchange items between party members, change characters, set new formation or just start whole new party, then use "Party Management".

SHOPS

The Armory is a place for weapons and armors.
The Magic Store is a place for potions, scrolls and other special items.
The Marketplace is a place where you can hunt for low priced items that appearing randomly and are changing when you back from the battle.
To buy an item, just click on it in "Store".
To sell an item, just click on it in "Equipment" or "Inventory".
There is no limit how much you can sell and price is the same in all shops.
To see information about an item, just hold mouse cursor over it.
Note that coins are the all available ones from the whole party, so you do not have to transfer it between characters.

CHARACTER TRAINING

After you back from victorious battle, you can use gained skill points to improve your characters.
To do so, visit "The Academy".
You can improve each character in the same way you create them ("Character Creation").
You can also sell all your party skill points for teaching others.

TRAVELING

To visit places outside The Town, choose "The Gate".
You can set difficulty level there, but it is recommended for new players to keep it default.
By choosing "The Crossroads", you will travel to random place.
By choosing other place, you will meet enemies that are related with it, but sometimes other unexpected temporary guests may appear too.

THE ARENA

The Arena is a place where you can fight for declared amount of coins.
The higher amount, the more difficult tournament.
Difficulty levels are similar to this in "The Gate" when you are going to travel outside The Town.
It is recommended for new players to choose the lowest one.
Before you join, you will have to pay entrance price.
During tournament you will meet combinations of all possibile enemies.
If you win, then there is no random treasure or items.
You receive only declared amount of coins as your reward.

OTHER PLACES

Visit "The Temple" if you need longer spell effects that will help your party during battle.
They cost coins and will stay for 8 turns during next battle.
Visit "The Fountain Of Luck" if you feel lucky or have very few coins.
There is a chance that you will be surprised with more of them or other gift.
Visit "The Hall Of Heroes" if you want to know your fame rank.
You can compare it with other players.
The more battles you win and the more enemies you defeat, the higher your fame rank will be.
Very high results may bring benefits in the future.

SAVING GAME PROGRESS

Before you exit the game, you should save your current game progress.
To do so, visit "The Camp" or choose "Sleeping" in The Inn.
Note that by doing this, you will also exit the game.
Saving game progress is not possibile without registered account.
If you do not have account yet, then game will ask you for just email and password to create new one.
To load your game, just choose "Load Game" from title screen and type your email as login and password.

 

ITEMS

EQUIPMENT

Equipment are items that character is wearing, including weapons and shields.
All these items are active during battle.
Weapons and shields can be switched with ones that appear in inventory during battle by choosing "Item" button.
Note that equipped armor parts and shields can be crashed if enemy is using close combat weapon ("Item Durability").

INVENTORY

Many may wonder why inventory is so small and can not contain some items.
The answer is that the game is going more realistic here.
Except the whole euipment that you are wearing, you can only store two alternative weapons (or additional shields) and six small items on your belt (like potions and scrolls).
Imagine how it is possible to fight with additional armor in your inventory, or even just many medium and large items.

ITEM DURABILITY

Only armor parts or shields can be destroyed during fight.
It is possible if they were hit with close combat weapon.
The higher damage with close combat weapon, the higher chance that armor part or shield will be crashed.
The higher damage reduction has an item, the less chance to crash it.
Crashed item means it is destroyed and will no longer appear in your equipment.
"Crashing Hit" skill with close combat weapon noticeable increases chance to crash an item if hit, which is useful on enemies that are armored or armed with shields.

WEAPONS

Characters can use alternative weapons during battle (up to two stored in inventory).
If they are not skilled in these weapons, then effectiveness will be lower.
Spell casters can even use their staff or wand as close combat weapon.
Characters that are not skilled in spell casting can use spells, but there is high chance that they will fail.

SHIELDS

Shields can be used without "Shield" skill, but their effectiveness will be lower.
If character is equipped with two handed item and shield, then shield will not be active to protect him.
Exception is a moment when character choose "Defense", what makes shield active until next move, even if two handed weapon is equipped.
If character is equipped with one handed item and shield, then shield is always active to protect him.
Shields stored in inventory are never active until they are equipped.
If attack has been blocked with a shield, then no damage is going to character health.
Shield can protect from close combat hits, ranged shots, and some damaging spells.
Shields can be crashed if enemy is using close combat weapon ("Item Durability").

ARMORS

Armor parts can be used as equipment only.
They can be worn by any character, even spell casters.
Armor parts do not affect effectiveness of spell casting.
They are active during battle and decrease damage dealt to character health if are hit.
Armor part can protect from close combat hits, ranged shots, and some damaging spells.
Armor parts can be crashed if enemy is using close combat weapon ("Item Durability").

SCROLLS

Scrolls can be used by any character, even without scroll reading skills.
Spell casters have higher chance that scroll will not fail, because they have high "Powerful" trait.
No matter if scroll succeed or not, it is no more usable.
Scrolls can be accessed from inventory during battle by using "Item" option.

POTIONS

Potions can be used by any character on himself.
Potions in comparision to scrolls, will always succeed with their effect.

RARE AND UNIQUE ITEMS

It is possible that after victorious battle you will find rare or unique item as treasure.
The higher difficulty level, the higher chance for such item.
If you have extremely high luck, then you might be also rewarded with them by "The Fountain Of Luck".
Sometimes you can buy them at "The Marketplace", but price will be probably too high for you.

 

COMBAT

ATTACK

When using "Attack", then character is attacking chosen enemy with basic attack.
Basic attack can be affected by traits, passive skills and equipped weapons.

When attacking with no weapon, then only close enemy can be chosen as a target.
Chance to hit depends on agility, then  damage depends on strength.
"Martial Arts" skill may additionally affect chance to hit and chance to stun enemy if hit.
Some traits may affect enemy if hit.

When attacking with close combat weapon, then only close enemy can be chosen as a target.
Chance to hit depends on agility and item hit, then damage depends on strength and item damage.
If character is skilled with equipped close combat weapon, then item hit and damage is increased.
Close combat weapons can additionally crash armor parts or shields if hit.

When attacking with ranged combat weapon, then any enemy can be chosen as a target.
Chance to hit depends on agility and item hit, then damage depends on item damage (strength has no effect).
If character is skilled with equipped ranged combat weapon, then item hit and damage is increased.
There is no limit to available ammo for ranged combat weapons.

When using one of action skills to attack (known also as special attack), then character is attacking chosen enemy with basic attack that is modified by this skill.
Most "Hit" action skills can be used to improve basic attack with close combat weapon or no weapon.
For example: "Accurate Hit" will improve basic attack with weapon or no weapon by adding +8 chance to hit.
Most "Shot" action skills can be used to improve basic attack with ranged combat weapon only.
For example: "Accurate Shot" will improve basic attack with ranged combat weapon by adding +8 chance to hit.
When action skill has been used to attack enemy, then this skill will be available again after cool down period (example: "Accurate Hit" or "Accurate Shot" at level 1 will need 8 turns, when at level 4 they will be ready after 4).

DEFENSE

When using "Defense", then character chance to evade and block with shield (even if two handed weapon is equipped, shield becomes temporary active in this case) is noticeable higher.
Increased defense stays until next move of the character.

When character is attacked with weapon or no weapon, then agility affects his chance to evade, and if succeed, then he is not damaged.
"Evade" skill can increase chance to evade damage.
Spells are auto targeted, so there is no chance to evade them.
If evade failed, then there is still a chance that damage will be blocked by equipped shield.
"Shield" skill can increase chance to block damage.
If shield failed or is not equipped, then there is still a chance to decrease damage by armor part reduction if hit.
Armor parts are protecting in following order:
- Torso Armor
- Legs Armor
- Head Armor
- Hands Armor
- Feet Armor
"Armor" skill can increase chance for each armor part to be hit.
For example: Torso Armor gives Defense 60% but this time it was not enough and this armor part was not hit, then Leg Armor gives Defense 30% and this time it was hit, then Leg Armor gives -60% Damage Reduction so damage which was 10 has been reduced to 4 and such amount has been decreased from character health.
Note that armor parts and shields can be crashed with close combat weapons ("Item Durability").

Torso and leg armor may affect chance to hit and evade (chance to not being hit), especially if character is not strong enough and armor has higher damage reduction.
Following parameters have the same effect for each torso and leg armor:
- Damage Reduction >80 = -4 to hit and -4 to evade
- Damage Reduction >60 = -3 to hit and -3 to evade
- Damage Reduction >40 = -2 to hit and -2 to evade
- Damage Reduction >20 = -1 to hit and -1 to evade
The whole armor weight sum might be reduced by strength:
- Strength 14 = +4 armor weight reduction
- Strength 13 = +3 armor weight reduction
- Strength 12 = +2 armor weight reduction
- Strength 11 = +1 armor weight reduction
For example: Torso Armor with Damage Reduction -60% gives -2 armor weight, then Leg Armor with Damage Reduction -60% gives another -2 armor weight which is -4 total, then character strength is 12, so total armor weight can be reduced by 2 what gives -2 total armor weight that finally affects character chance to hit with -2 and his evade with -2 too (for strength 14 that would be 0, and for strength 10 would be -4).

SPELLS

When attacking with damaging spell, then any enemy can be chosen as a target.
Spells always hit their targets, but damage can be blocked by shield or reduced by armor part.
"Powerful" trait (higher power), "Spell Caster" skill and special items may increase spell effectiveness (chance that spell will not fail).
"Powerful" trait (higher power), "Spell Reader" skill and special items may increase scroll effectiveness (chance that scroll will not fail).
Some enemies may have immunity to specific damage types (like fire, cold, electric, poison).
Some spells can bypass armors (like holy or drain).
Some spells may target multiple enemies.
Not damaging spells can do various effects on chosen enemies or party members, and stay until new turn begins.

PROTECTION

In critical situations, party members can protect each other as long as they are in close range.
Basic protection gives 50% chance to protect chosen friendly target.
"Protect" skill can increase chance to protect others.
If protection will succeed, then protector takes all defense part for himself.

MOVEMENT

Movement allows to move to free position in close range or switch with other friendly target.
In second case, both, moving character and switched target are losing their move in current turn.
Movement can reach any free position with "Flying" trait or "Teleport" spell.
It is not possible to move on enemy position or switch with enemy.

ITEM

Item lists character inventory, so all alternative weapons and shields, and small items like potions and scrolls.
Switching weapons and shields will not result in losing move for current character, and can be done unlimited times.
Such option gives a chance to choose different equipment for current attack.
Using small items like potions and scrolls will result in losing move for current character.

TURNS

Combat is divided into turns.
Turns are divided into phases.
Each phase is given to party or enemy.
Each side can do one move in their phase.
Each character and each enemy has one move per turn.
Any character that was not used in current turn can make a move, so this allows to create any combinations and tactics.
Characters and enemies may lost turns due to special events like temporary stunning or immobility.
When all characters and enemies used their move, then there is no more available phases and new turn begins.

ENEMY

Enemy may have the same traits, skills and spells as party members.
Some might be available for enemy only.
Different enemies may require different tactics.
Enemy is not making always the same decisions, so you can be sometimes surprised with their unexpected moves.
Size of enemy does matter in chance to hit.
Enemy with smaller size is even more hard to hit, and enemy with larger size is much easier to hit.
New enemies may arrive between turns, especially on higher difficulty levels, and they may appear also on side of party formation.
The faster battle will be win by the party, the less enemies will be alerted.
There is a chance that enemy will contain boss who is located in center of front or back line in formation.
Bosses have often "Whirl Hit" or "Double Casting" skill.
To see information about your enemy, just hold mouse cursor over it.
Knowing enemy traits, skills, spells and items is important to prepare most effective tactics.

POISON

Characters and most enemies can be infected by poison.
The higher poison level is, the more health can be lost per turn.
Poison level can be increased with another infection.
Poison level can be decreased by 1 per turn with strength.
The stronger character is, the higher chance to decrease poison.
Only "Antidote" potion or spell can cure the whole infection.

STUNNING AND IMMOBILITY

Character and most enemies can be slowed, stunned or immobilized by trait, skill or spell.
Such effect is temporary and stay until new turn begins.
Affected character losts his move in current turn and is very easy to hit.
Some enemies can be have "Stun Immunity", and some may evade immobility with strength, agility or power.

BLEEDING

Bleeding may happen if character or enemy has very low health (and has no "Bloodless" trait).
It can bring 1 damage per turn.
Not every turn might be affected by bleeding damage.
Only health recovery can stop it. 

FINAL RESULT

If party will win the whole battle, then conscious (not removed from battlefield) characters will gain experience and gather all treasures, including found coins and items.
Unconscious characters will have less total experience than other party members.
There is experience bonus if enemy had a boss.
Experience and coins are decreased for each unconscious character.
The higher difficulty level was and more enemies were defeated, the more experience points, coins, and higher chance for rare and unique items.
If party will be defeated, then all their coins will be lost.
Party can also surrender with flag in bottom right corner, but the result will be the same like they would be defeated.
It is not possible to lost party member until he is not replaced with new one.
