You may want to skip this if you don't care. ;)


First, and foremost...
Final Fantasy is a graphic game that relies heavily on plot to move you from
event to event. You accomplish everything with the push of 1 button.

The Eternal Fantasy is a text based game that relies mainly on interaction with
other players, and the world. You can choose what quests you wish to do. You are
not limited by a story. Many commands in the Eternal Fantasy require more
thought than simply pushing a button at the right spot.


Final Fantasy: The Goal
You play the role of a group of heros in an epic struggle to save the world.
You win the game, and everyone lives happily ever after.

TEF: The Goal
You play the role of a single person, good or evil, who can join up with many
other people, solving quests and exploring the world. There is no "win"
situation. This is the Eternal Fantasy. New evils and problems are always coming
up. You can do whatever you like.


Final Fantasy: Exploring
You move around the screen, searching objects, looking for interesting things
that are out of the ordinary. You talk to people, and solve quests. Solving
quests often opens up new areas to explore.

TEF: Exploring
You move around areas (using directions like north,up,w,e,s,in,out) searching
for objects or interesting things. You can talk to "Non-player characters"
(NPCs) to get information, and solve quests. Solving quests often opens up new
areas to explore.


Final Fantasy: Encountering Enemies
You walk around and randomly stumble into invisible enemies. You are thrust into
combat whether you like it or not. You can run, and the enemies are gone.

TEF: Encountering Enemies
You walk around areas and see the enemies. You can usually choose to engage in
combat or not. You can "con monster" to consider your chances of winning.
If you chose to fight, and you are losing, you can run away, but the enemy is
still where it was. It keeps any damage you have done to it.


Final Fantasy: Battle
Combat is turn based. You can use special attacks and spells. You can usually
kill a monster in 1 or 2 hits.
You gain experience from the kill.
In some FF games, you gain "job points" from the kill, or using abilities.

TEF: Battle
Combat is a constant stream of attacks. You can use special attacks and spells.
You don't have to type: "fight" each time you wish to attack. Each hit will
strike for less than those in FF games, because there are so many attacks per
battle compared to FF.
You gain experience from the kill.
You gain Job points from the kill, and from abilities.


Final Fantasy: Gaining Levels and Abilities
When you get enough XP from battle, you gain a level. Your stats increase. Your
Hit points go up, as well as Spell Points. Depending on the FF game, sometimes
you will gain skills and spells at levelup. Other times, that depends on how
many Job Points you have accumulated.

TEF: Gaining Levels and Abilities
When you get enough XP from battle, you gain a level. Your stats increase. Your
Hit points go up, as well as Spell Points. When you have enough Job Points you
may gain Class Levels, and with them, skills and spells for the class you have
chosen become available.
