This player status provides all the information about the
status of the character.
The left side

buttons are used for most of the decisions in Phantasia, so
you'll be pushing them a lot. To make things easier, the
numbers 1-8 on your keyboard can be used in place of are
aliases for any of these buttons as long as the cursor is not
in the input field in the chat area. The function keys will do
the same thing and will work in the chat input field. You can
also use the space bar to hit the left-most active button.
These keyboard shortcuts are not available in the Normal Java
client. Note: Each client has different amounts of java client
The list of
players on the right will tell you who is currently playing
and give some basic information about them. A letter is used
to designate the character race and a second may be used for
characters that have attained special ranks. Race designations
are M, F, E, D, H, X, T, G, A, E, N, S for Magic-User, Fighter, Elf, Dwarf,
Halfling, Experimento, Thief, Giant, Archer, Ent, Necromancer
and Saiyan. Rank designations are N, S, K, Q,
V, X, E, A and W for Knight, Steward, King, Queen, Oracle, Council of the
Wise, Valar, Ex-Valar, Evolutionist, Apprentice and Game Wizard.
The number to
the right of these designations indicate the channel a
character is in. Players can only hear and speak to other
players who are in the same channel. Players start on channel
1, the channel reserved for newbies, but have the option to
change this under the "Info" menu available while
playing. Channels 2-6 are reserved for specific realms.
Channel 7 is the role playing channel. Channel 8 is only
permitted for players who possess a palantir. Profanity is not permitted on channel 1 and speaking
privileges may be taken away if this is abused.
