The game has a basic good vs. evil plot. This game is also one of the few games for the Family Computer that contains a day/night cycle. Players are allowed to assign the initial available character with a particular gender and job class, which will affect the equipment and spells they can learn and acquire. Throughout the game other characters can be acquired and added to your party. There are guilds in the various towns where the player can assign characters in his/her party to perform 'jobs'. When a character is performing a 'job', they are not available for use in the player's party until the job has been completed. After the job is finished, the character will return to the player's party and will receive extra money and/or equipment.
A formation and tactic can be picked at the onset of the battle, but from there the battle is handled automatically, and items/spells/attacks are used when needed as determined by the computer.
