M3 Character Technical Documentation


In this document, character refers to a playable in game entity or the building blocks of one. Other types of entities that you might be looking for are monsters and NPCs (mobile events).

There are three highly related things discussed on this page: player characters, character classes, and vehicles. All three share several characteristics.

Player characters are what the player normally controls. They must take the form of a character class.

Vehicles are almost identical to player characters, however they have different defaults for how they react after battle, and tiles may treat them differently. Unlike a PC, a vehicle does not belong to a character class.

Character classes are similar to jobs in the Final Fantasy games. Every character must be a class, and may be able to change classes throughout the game.

I'll discuss classes first.
