An evil force hidden in the dark, a mysterious person roaming the environment, etc. these are only a few examples of strange encounters in the Action Role-playing games. The game wants to see the player controlling a team of other characters either these characters are real humans or AI-controlled characters; each character has its unique behavior and style to play the game.
