Frequent random encounters are common in games like Dragon Quest , Legend of Legaia , Pokémon and the Final Fantasy series. ROLE-PLAYING GAMESRandom encounters—sometimes called wandering monsters—were a feature of Dungeons Pseudo-random number generators create the sequence of numbers used to determine if an encounter will happen. The form and frequency can vary depending on a number of factors, such as where the player is located in the game world and the statistics of the player character

108 Stars Of Destiny (Suikoden)
SUIKODEN (Japanese : 幻想水滸伝, Hepburn : Gensō Suikoden) is a role-playing video game series originally created by Yoshitaka Murayama . The game series is loosely based on the classical Chinese novel Shui Hu Zhuan by Shi Naian . Shui Hu Zhuan is rendered as 水滸伝 in Japanese, and read phonetically as Suikoden. Each individual game in the series centers on relative themes of politics, corruption, revolution, mystical crystals known as True Runes and the "108 Stars of Destiny "—the 108 protagonists who are loosely interpreted from the source material. Though the Suikoden games follow an irregular chronological sequence of events, the entire series (except for Tierkreis and Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki) takes place within the same world among continuing and overlapping histories. In some cases, several characters appear in multiple installments

Save Point
A SAVED GAME (also sometimes called a GAME SAVE, SAVEGAME, SAVEFILE, SAVE POINT, or simply SAVE) is a piece of digitally stored information about the progress of a player in a video game . From the earliest games in the 1970s onward, game platform hardware and memory improved, which led to bigger and more complex computer games, which, in turn, tended to take more and more time to play them from start to finish. This naturally led to the need to store in some way the progress, and how to handle the case where the player received a "Game over". More modern games with a heavier emphasis on story telling are designed to allow the player many choices that impact the story in a profound way later on, and some game designers do not want to allow more than one save game so that the experience will always be 'fresh'

Magic (gaming)
MAGIC or MANA is an attribute assigned to characters within a role-playing or video game that indicates their power to use special abilities or "spells". Magic is usually measured in MAGIC POINTS or MANA POINTS, shortened as MP. Different abilities will use up different amounts of MP. When the MP of a character reaches zero, the character won't be able to use special abilities until some of their MP is recovered. Much like health , magic might be displayed as a numeric value, such as "50/100". Here, the first number indicates the current amount of MP a character has whereas the second number indicates the character's maximum MP. In video games, magic can also be displayed visually, such as with a gauge that empties itself as a character uses their abilities
