Welcome aboard, everyone! It's heartwarming to see such a response after months of preparation.

1: Mages don't need an elemental gem to fight, correct? And they don't start off with one either?
2: When we're defeated, we come back with one health? Or are we fully restocked?
3: I didn't see if we have too buy weapons like swords and wands. Do we need to buy them?
All of these questions are addressed in the rules, but since it is a long read, I will repeat them here.
1. Mages need elemental gems to cast spells, but they can attack physically with their weapon as well. All mages start with one elemental gem, as stated in the character creation page.
2. If you fall in battle, you will be automatically revived after it with one health. However, there is an item that can revive you during the battle as well.
3. You start out with one weapon of your choice that has the power of 3, as stated in the character creation page. Each class has a restricted array of weapons in their use, so check out the job class descriptions.
Hope this answered all your questions. I'll look forward to seeing you in the game!
